WATCH: Jennifer Lopez, Lin-Manuel Miranda record song for Orlando shooting victims
Jennifer Lopez and Broadway star Lin-Manuel Miranda record a song called 'Love Make the World Go Round' to benefit the victims of the Orlando nightclub shooting

NEW YORK, USA –  Jennifer Lopez and Broadway’s Lin-Manuel Miranda – writer and star of the hit musical Hamilton – have recorded a tribute song to benefit victims of Orlando’s June 12 nightclub attack.

The two artists both tweeted Monday a behind-the-scenes video of themselves recording “Love Make the World Go Round.”

“We cannot let them diminish or intimidate us,” raps Miranda in the clip.


The artists have not yet announced a release date for the song.

On Twitter Miranda said profits from downloads of the track will benefit the Hispanic Federation of Orlando, an organization that opened a fund called Proyecto Somos Orlando (#SomosOrlando) a few hours after the mass shooting. (READ: Hollywood, PH stars pay tribute to Orlando shooting victims)

The project aims to “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.”

Both Miranda and Lopez are of Puerto Rican origin. Many of the shooting victims were of that heritage. (WATCH: Stars honor the 49 Orlando shooting victims in moving tribute)
