Local musician Shadow Pearson, of The Actomatics, is working on a project with a team to benefit people affected by the Pulse shooting. The project revolves around “City Song-Finger on the Pulse.”

The song is by Pearson and The City Song Players. She said they called it City Song to make “sure that it could belong to a 9 year-old and a 93 year-old.”

Proceeds from the song will benefit onepulsefoundation.org. Pearson says she wrote the song the day of the Pulse shooting, while driving down a road in Lake County. She said the lyrics came to her pretty easily.

“City Song is about resolve. I didn’t want City Song to be painful but it is, because it has to be,” said Pearson.
