Things We Saw Today: Lin-Manuel Miranda Gathers Jennifer Lopez, Rita Moreno, Gina Rodriguez and Others In a Song for Puerto Rico

Today’s biggest news has basically been hot garbage. Thankfully (and pretty much as usual), Lin-Manuel Miranda is here to provide us with a little bit of hope through music. This time, he’s accompanied by seemingly every star in the Latinx firmamentproud Latinas like Rita Moreno, Gina Rodriguez, Jennifer Lopez, and Gloria Estefan; and proud Latinos like Marc Anthony, John Leguizamo, Ruben Blades, and Fat Joejoining together on a track called “Almost Like Praying,” which debuted today. You can see the music video above, and download the track HERE. Proceeds benefit the Hispanic Federation‘s efforts toward Puerto Rico disaster relief.

What have you seen out there today, friends?
