Fort Saskatchewan country musician Donny Lee has written a powerful song for a good cause.
 
16 Souls was recorded in memory of those who died in the Humboldt Broncos fatal bus crash.
 
Lee penned the song with his wife, Shauna, in about 90 minutes. 
 
"She probably did a lot more with the song than I did forsure. She had a song sitting there ready to go and said 'this has been all over the news and I can't get this off my mind,'" said Donny. 
 
He put a performance of the song on Facebook, where it gathered close to 500,000 views in just a few days. 
 
Lee works half of every year in Nashville. Doing well over 200 shows, he told MIX 107 the song is often requested, mostly by Canadians.

The song was played at Adam Harold's funeral, at the request of the family. He was the youngest player on the team.
 
All proceeds on iTunes and digital stores will go to charity. 
 
Lee eluded to "most likely" playing the song on Sept.29 during his performance at the Shell Theatre
