Lin-Manuel Miranda gathers all-star Latin artists for hurricane relief

Cover art for the Lin Manuel Miranda single

Ever since Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico, Hamilton composer Lin-Manuel Miranda has been in overdrive to raise awareness and funds to help the devastated island. The song was recorded last weekend at studios in New York City, Los Angeles, Miami, The Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico, and Miranda himself traveled to each studio to work with the artists. I stayed in constant contact with my parents as we waited for word from our family on the island. "For some, those days were weeks", Miranda told the Associated Press.

Immediately, he wondered, "What can I do with my skill set to help?" Mused the host, "I can still hum the tunes of that show, which was a 20-minute musical that featured a maniacal fetal pig in a nightmare that he had cut up in biology class".

The song's lyrics list all of the 78 towns of Puerto Rico. Miranda said 100 percent of proceeds will go to the Hispanic Federation, a group of Latino nonprofits in the United States, which is now raising money for Hurricane Maria victims.

"What I saw on my Facebook feed - and I'm sure a lot of other Latinos feel the same way - was this roll call of towns". It features an all-star cast of Latinx artists, including Jenifer Lopez, Marc Anthony, Gloria Estefan, Fat Joe, Ruben Blades, Luis Fonsi, Rita Moreno and many others.

"We lift you up always", Lin-Manuel tweeted. Miranda gave her a memory stick, and she was able to save Suela's portion of the song.

Ricky Martin and Daddy Yankee were also invited to take part but were already too busy assisting with hurricane recovery to participate.

Trump was also slammed for his remarks comparing the death count of 2005's Hurricane Katrina to the crisis in Puerto Rico following two devastating hurricanes. "This has been an unprecedented disaster that requires a precedence response". The lyric pulls inspiration from "West Side Story's" "Maria", as a way to reclaim the name, according to Miranda.

"The devastating earthquakes in Mexico have elicited a deeply moving response from the Mexican people", Cuarón said in announcing his effort.
