The lives of the seven people killed in the Oikos University shooting rampage will be honored all month long with a music memorial.

Bay Area choirs and musicians are donating their time to sing or play classical music in front of the school.

"To hear that the lives that were lost, the seven lives, it just really touched me. It hit home because it could have been my sister, it could have been my brother," said gospel singer Latrise Walker.

Anyone who would like to give condolences through music is welcome to participate.

Seven people lost their lives in Monday's massacre. Police say 43-year-old One Goh confessed to the shootings.

Authorities have located a gun purchased by Goh. It was found in a canal less than a mile from the college.

The University has also set up a memorial page where people can post messages or donate to the Oikos University Victims Foundation.
