Jennifer Lopez, Lin-Manuel Miranda Team Up for Song to Benefit Orlando Shooting Victims
Jennifer Lopez and Lin-Manuel Miranda are joining forces to benefit the victims of the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando, recording a song titled “Love Make the World Go Round” as a tribute for those affected by the massacre.
Lopez and Miranda first teased the song on July 4 by sharing behind-the-scenes video of their musical collaboration.
“Me and @Lin_Manuel working in studio on something very special,” Lopez wrote alongside an Instagram video of the same clip.
According to the duo, proceeds from the download of the track will go towards the Hispanic Federation Proyecto Somos Orlando. No release date has been given.
“The days, weeks, months, and even years following will be a time of healing for our nation, but especially for victims and the families of the victims,” the Hispanic Federation wrote on their site. “Proyecto Somos Orlando will address the long-term needs for mental health services that are culturally competent and bilingual. Proyecto will enable care to be delivered to those affected directly in the communities in which they live. Beyond emergency assistance, they will be provided with case management, crisis intervention, and mental health services, among other needs.”
However, this isn’t the first time Miranda has joined forces with another star for a good cause. The Hamilton star, whose last day on the hit musical is July 9, recorded “What the Worlds Needs Now Is Love” with other Broadway stars just days after the gay nightclub shooting to help the LGBT Center of Central Florida.
