Boca Raton’s Ariana Grande, just cast as Penny Pingleton in the upcoming TV production of “Hairspray Live,” has released a song with singer Victoria Monet called “Better Days,” in response to the police-involved shootings in Minnesota and Louisiana, as well as the ambush of police officers in Dallas, according to Rolling Stone.

On her Instagram page, Grande wrote “During this challenging time, we have to remember that the only way we will progress is if the overruling force is #Love. Too many precious lives were taken from us this week, this month, this year. Rest in peace #AltonSterling. Rest in peace #PhilandoCastile #BlackLivesMatter. And the police that were peacefully guarding the #BlackLivesMatter rally in Dallas…. Rest in peace. #LorneAhrens, #MichaelKrol,#MichaelJSmith, #BrentThompson &#PatrickZamarripa.”
