(EDGE) Jennifer Lopez and "Hamilton" star Lin-Manuel Miranda are collaborating on a new song that will honor the 49 people lost in the Pulse gay nightclub shooting in Orlando, Fla. last month.

The track is called "Love Make the World Go Round" and proceeds from the download of the song will benefit the Hispanic Federation's Proyecto Somos Orlando, a foundation that helps the victims and family of the mass shooting, Rolling Stone reports.

"The days, weeks, months, and even years following will be a time of healing for our nation, but especially for victims and the families of the victims," the Hispanic Federation wrote on their site. "Proyecto Somos Orlando 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," the site reads. "Beyond emergency assistance, they will be provided with case management, crisis intervention, and mental health services, among other needs."

"What we got is love even when the sinners hate us / We cannot let them diminish or intimidate us / We sing out, we got the rhythm and the true on our side / We cut through the divide and we do it with pride," Miranda raps in a teaser.

The release date for "Love Make the World Go Round" has yet to be announced.

And let's not forget Miranda's moving acceptance speech at last month's Tony Awards, which were held a day after the Orlando shooting. Revisit that below.
