NEW YORK, July 8 (UPI) — Earlier this week, Hamilton-creator Lin-Manuel Miranda tweeted that he was recording a song with Jennifer Lopez to honor the 49 victims of the Pulse nightclub massacre in Orlando last month.

The murders at Pulse took place on the club’s Latin night and Miranda and Lopez, who are both Puerto Rican, wanted to give back to the Latin community.

“The old man Miranda put some words together for the occasion,” he tweeted.

It was also announced today that the duo will perform the song on July 11 as part of the Today show’s summer concert series.
