HANOVER, VA (WWBT) -

There is a saying that music is the universal language and that it can help people heal from traumatic events.

Chorus students from Patrick Henry High School in Hanover were inspired to spread love and healing through music, following the school shooting that claimed 17 lives in Florida.

Students took to the hallways and lobby of the school so that everyone could hear.

"Our students are beacons of hope and light in a dark world," said Mr. Jacob Devol, chorus director.

A video was posted on Hanover County Public Schools' Facebook page on Thursday, and it has received nearly 100 shares.
