Tony Award-winning Hamilton star and creator Lin-Manuel Miranda has teamed up with Jennifer Lopez to release the original dance single “Love Make the World Go Round,” which is released July 8 on iTunes.
All proceeds from the U.S. download sale of the song through October 5 will go to the Hispanic Federation for the Somos Orlando Fund, which was created to aid those affected by the June 12 mass shooting at Orlando’s Pulse nightclub.
Conceived as a “euphoric dancehall-infused anthem,” the song was recorded June 27 at Avatar Studios in New York. It is being released on the Epic Records label.
Lopez and Miranda will perform the song July 11 on Today July in Rockefeller Plaza. The event is open to the public, but fans can sign up here for free passes.
