Singer Mariah Carey is donating proceeds from the sales of her hit single "Hero" to families of the victims of the Dec. 7 Long Island Rail Road shooting tragedy. Six people died and 17 others were wounded in a random attack by a gunman.

Carey, says employees of her record company, Columbia, often traveled on the train to Long Island during rush hour out of New York's Penn Station."Hero" is the current top 10 single release from Carey's No. 1 album "Music Box."
