Posted By on Tue, Jul 5, 2016 at 1:02 PM

Jennifer Lopez and Hamilton-creator Lin-Manuel Miranda are coming together to record a song benefitting the Somos Orlando fund created by the Hispanic Federation for the victims' families and survivors of the Pulse mass shooting. 

Miranda and Lopez released a sneak peak of the song, "Love Make the World Go Round" on their social media accounts. Both stars, like majority of the 49 killed in the massacre on June 12, are of Puerto Rican descent.

Somos Orlando says on its page that the money will "address the long-term needs for mental health services that are culturally competent and bilingual" and "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."
