Broadway Records Releases 'Shine (Instrument Of Hope)'

Broadway Records announced today the release of a new version of Shine, the anthem written by Sawyer Garrity & Andrea Peña, student survivors of the Parkland tragedy.

The Instrument of Hope is a trumpet crafted from spent bullet casings to help keep the conversation about gun violence prevention on the main stage. Arranger & composer Kim Scharnberg gathered 66 trumpet players from New York City and Los Angeles to record the song, featuring soloists Arturo Sandoval, Randy Brecker, Wayne Bergeron, Jeff Beal, Jami Dauber, Terell Stafford, Chuck Findley, Tim Hagans, Winston Byrd, Michael Leonhart and Barbara Laronga. Produced, arranged, and orchestrated by Scharnberg, the historic sessions were filmed by a team led by Academy Award-nominated cinematographer and director Mikael Salomon.

The music video is available here:
