Singer Fiona Apple has pledged to donate two years’ worth of royalties she earns from her song “Criminal” to an organization helping detained migrants in the United States cover their legal fees in a bid “to help the WRONGLY criminalized get justice.”

“Something I love about being a songwriter is that I get paid for usage of a song I wrote years ago whenever a TV show or movie asks to use it,” Apple said in a post on Tumblr on Sunday. According to the “Paper Bag” singer, “Criminal” is her “most requested” track.

The article goes on to state the following:
