Jennifer Lopez is spreading the love, all for charity…
The 46-year-old Puerto Rican singer/actress is joining voices with Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda on new single to benefit the Orlando shooting victims.
Lopez and Miranda tweeted on Monday about their new track, entitled “Love Make the World Go Round.”
The song will benefit the Hispanic Federation‘s Proyecto Somos Orlando initiative, which “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.”
Miranda teased the track on Twitter as “a taste of some new music you don’t need tickets to hear.”
The accompanying video features Miranda rapping about peace and love (“A generation of innovators enabled to patiently wait for change ’cause change is what they’ve been afraid of / the malevolence can wait, raise a level of debate, celebrate, elevate.”) while Lopez sings the titular line to ring in the chorus: “We’re not staying inside today / they’re not taking our pride away.”
