In the wake of the Orlando shooting and the so-called transgender "bathroom bill" legislation in Tennessee, a Nashville group has banded together to create music for a cause.

The Nashville In Harmony Choir has been preparing for a concert on Sunday to cap off Nashville Pride Weekend.

The LGBT choir gave NewsChannel 5 a sneak peek during one of their rehearsals.

The performance has been set to include a song written by director Don Schlosser.

Choir members said the attack in Orlando was an attack on a safe place for LGBT members, and they have been wanting their performance on Sunday to be a strong statement of unity.

“That’s why that attack was so significant. It wasn't just a dance club. It was a sanctuary, it was the place where people go, the safe place,” Schlosser said.

The Nashville In Harmony performance has been scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Sunday at TPAC.
