JLO

American singer Jennifer Lopez and Broadway’s Lin-Manuel Miranda — writer and star of the hit musical “Hamilton” — have recorded a tribute song to benefit victims of Orlando’s June 12 nightclub attack.

The two artists both tweeted Monday a behind-the-scenes video of themselves recording “Love Make the World Go Round.”

“We cannot let them diminish or intimidate us,” raps Miranda in the clip.

The artists have not yet announced a release date for the song.

On Twitter Miranda said profits from downloads of the track will benefit the Hispanic Federation of Orlando, an organization that opened a fund called #SomosOrlando a few hours after the mass shooting.

Both Miranda and Lopez are of Puerto Rican origin. Many of the shooting victims were of that heritage.

Gunman Omar Mateen killed 49 people and injured 53 others at the gay nightclub Pulse, a venue popular among Latinos.
