Take heed to it, and ensure to donate at

Ever since Puerto Rico was hit with the disastrous Hurricane Maria that has fully decimated its energy gird and its infrastructure, Lin Manuel Miranda has been on it. Lin Manuel Miranda, himself Puerto Rican, has taken it upon himself to lift cash for Puerto Rican aid, particularly in gentle of the completely terrible response from our government department of presidency. The track — launched via Atlantic Data — opens up with Lin Manuel Miranda singing a couple of bars from “West Facet Story”, that stunning musical about two warring gangs — one among which is Puerto Rican. Then the track continues with visitor appearances from Marc Anthony, Ruben Blades, Camila Cabello, Pedro Capo, Dessa, Gloria Estefan, Fats Joe, Luis Fonsi, Juan Luis Guerra, Alex Lacamoire, John Leguizamo, Jennifer Lopez, Rita Moreno, Ednita Nazario, Joell Ortiz, Anthony Ramos, Gina Rodriguez, Gilberto Santa Rosa, PJ Sin Suela, Tommy Torres, Ana Villafañe, Ednita Nazario, Pedro Capo, Jennifer Lopez and Gloria Estefan. It’s great.

The track places the names of all 78 Puerto Rican cities into the lyrics. We encourage you to hearken to the track, which raises consciousness of the disaster in Puerto Rico, and to donate at
