After tirelessly raising awareness for his beloved Puerto Rico, Hamilton and Moana composer Lin-Manuel Miranda— in collaboration with artists like Jennifer Lopez, Marc Anthony, and many others– has released his latest single to benefit Hurricane Maria relief efforts, according to People.com.
The Tony Award winner, 37, created “Almost Like Praying” in response to the severe need to relief in Puerto Rico after islanders were left without running water, generators, food or electricity.
Miranda collaborated with various celebrities and artists including Jennifer Lopez, Marc Anthony, Camila Cabello, Luis Fonsi, Gloria Estefan, actress Gina Rodriguez and Fat Joe, as well as many others.

All proceeds from the new song will go toward the Hispanic Federation’s Hurricane Relief Fund, which will provide aid to Puerto Ricans living in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria.
Other big music artists have joined the fray in raising donations for the island, including Beyoncé, who released a remix of J. Balvin and Willy William’s “Mi Gente,” with all proceeds going toward victims in the Caribbean and Mexico.
Grammy winner Chance the Rapper live streamed his concert at the Hollywood Bowl on Wednesday night, encouraging those in the audience and those watching the stream to donate to Hurricane Maria victims through the non-profit Direct Relief.
