'Keep Dancing Orlando' Is The Beautiful Tribute City Needs Right Now

The viral video will make you smile and cry.

Dance is helping Orlando heal.

A video that honors and celebrates the lives the 49 victims killed during the mass shooting at Pulse nightclub has gone viral.

The group Keep Dancing Orlando posted a video featuring people busting moves all over city — from Disney World to the beloved, local sandwich joint Beefy King — on Facebook on Wednesday, and it has already garnered more than 36,000 shares and 770,000 views.

The video — which features people dancing to Whitney Houston’s upbeat anthem “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” — encourages viewers to donate to the OneOrlando Fund, and make their own videos of themselves dancing. Once their sweet moves have been recorded, they are then asked to upload the video to social media with the tag #KeepDancingOrlando.

Some people have already uploaded their videos, like local Orlando news station WESH 2 employees and the Orlando Psycho City Derby Girls:

“Forty-nine beautiful souls were taken at Pulse, but their spirit dances on in all of us,” reads the campaign’s site, adding: “We will recover. We will grow stronger. We will keep dancing.”
