Another day, another heart-warming response from the Dark Knight Rises team in the wake of the Aurora shooting. This time it’s legendary film composer Hans Zimmer, who scored the trilogy, who has composed a song for those affected by the tragedy:
“‘Aurora’ is dedicated to those who lost their lives and were affected by the tragedy in Aurora, Colorado. 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.”
