View a video and listen to the choral music of Vox Femina Los Angeles as the group honors the memory of each victim of the mass shooting at the LGBTQ club in Orlando, Florida, June 12, 2016. The chorus sings “Born This Way,” a song of joyful self-acceptance. The group had just performed this song honoring the LGBTQ community at their final concert of the season, “Vox Rocks,” on Saturday June 11, the night before the mass shooting occurred in Orlando.
