The premiere of the “The Dark Knight Rises” was blighted by a terrible tragedy in Aurora, Colorado. But there has been some light despite the darkness of this tragic shooting. The nation and the team behind Batman have impressively risen to the support of the Aurora victims.
Last week, Batman actor Christian Bale visited victims in the hospital and Warner Brothers announced they’d be donating a portion of “The Dark Knight Rises” ticket sales to help victims and their families.
Now, “TDKR” composer Hans Zimmer has found a unique way to contribute. He wrote a new piece called “Aurora” and dedicated it to those who lost their lives or were affected by the tragedy. The song can be purchased and downloaded by a pay what you want donation starting at 10 cents.
“I recorded this song in London in the days following the tragedy as a heartfelt tribute to the victims and their families. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Aurora Victim Relief organization.”
