The release date for “Love Make the World Go Round” has yet to be revealed, however, fans were able to get a glimpse at what to expect from the world-famous singer and the Broadway star.
The up-tempo track features the following lyrics rapped by Miranda: “What we got is love even when the sinners hate us / We cannot let them diminish or intimidate us / We sing out, we got the rhythm and the truth on our side / We cut through the divide and we do it with pride / A generation of innovators enabled to patiently wait for change ‘cause change is what they’ve been afraid of / The malevolence can wait, raise a level of debate, celebrate, elevate.”
Proyecto Somos Orlando posted the following statement on their website:
“The days, weeks, months and even years following will be a time of healing for our nation, but especially for victims and the families of the victims. [We] will address the long-term needs for mental health services that are culturally competent and bilingual. Proyecto will enable care to be delivered to those affected directly in the communities in which they live. Beyond emergency assistance, they will be provided with case management, crisis intervention and mental health services, among other needs.”
