The massive storm killed 34 people, leaving more than 90% of the island without power as many residents struggled to find clean drinking water. In the aftermath of the disaster, 20 of Latin music's biggest names came up with a heartwarming way to support the island.

Last week, Lin Manuel-Miranda, the star and composer of the hit Broadway musical Hamilton, starting teasing a new charity single as he urged his fans to donate to relief funds for the island.

He calls the new song "a love letter to Puerto Rico," and reveals he taped an early demo for the song in a bathroom at 3 a.m. while on vacation in Austria.

He also recruited an all-star group of actors and musicians connected to Puerto Rico, including Marc Anthony, Jennifer Lopez, Luis Fonsi (the "Despacito" singer), Gloria Estefan and actor John Leguizamo.
