WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

DeAnne Carroll, a musician from Wilmington, wrote an original song she dedicated to the victims of the Pulse nightclub massacre.

Carroll has been selected to play the song at the Miami Beach Gay Pride's “Pride Lights the Night” events. The events will honor the victims of the shootings by lighting up buildings throughout the greater Miami area in the colors of the Pride rainbow flag.

The "Pride Lights the Night" events take place after sunsets on April 7, 8 and 9.  

Carroll joined us on WECT News First at Four Tuesday to perform her song.

The shooting last summer in Orlando killed 49 people. Dozens more were injured.

Police shot and killed the gunman, Omar Mateen.
