Lin-Manuel Miranda Drops Puerto Rico Benefit Song 'Almost Like Praying' - Lyrics, Stream & Download!

Tony victor Lin-Manuel Miranda (Hamilton) released a new single this morning supporting relief efforts on behalf of the recently hurricane-stricken Puerto Rico.

"I was very wary of writing a song that felt like homework", Miranda said over the phone Wednesday from the "Sesame Street" offices in NY, where he was recording another number for disaster relief.

"I heard from my family four days after, five days after - some people are still waiting", he told USA Today. "I've never seen such mobilization in my life", Miranda told The Associated Press.

The song also marks a rare return to recording by Gloria Estefan, the Cuban American singer who helped bring Latin pop into the USA mainstream with her group Miami Sound Machine.

The team had also urged government investment in Rakhine infrastructure such as roads, electricity, water and internet access. The violence, backed by radical Buddhist monks, has left scores of Rohingya villages torched and completely destroyed.

"I waited to hear, are we increasing aid?"

As the son of Puerto Rican immigrants, Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda has taken it upon himself to be a voice for the many island inhabitants still suffering in the fallout from Hurricane Maria.

Included on the track are Hispanic stars like Jennifer Lopez, Marc Anthony, Gloria Estefan and Rita Moreno. "Almost Like Praying" will benefit the Hispanic Federation's UNIDOS Disaster Relief Fund for Puerto Rico and will also be featured in a special program on Telemundo Saturday. "Hopefully, these towns never feel forgotten again".

That's where tech came in-many artists recorded remotely in Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic.

He is in a good place with his club, he is working with a good coach there and we have huge belief in him as well. My players deserve congratulations as well, they played a decent game and can be proud".

Sin Suela found one in San Juan and recorded the verse but couldn't get enough bandwidth to email it to Miranda.

"It also opens an avenue because there are a lot of people who don't speak Spanish who still love that song and so it also gives you permission in a way", he said.

"Everyone said yes, sight unseen", he said, although some notable Latin musicians - Pitbull, Daddy Yankee, Ricky Martin - were too busy with their own relief efforts.

He's using his megastar power not for another blockbuster Broadway show, but rather to help those who lost everything when Hurricane Maria decimated Puerto Rico.

"This was an unprecedented disaster and requires an unprecedented federal response".
