Lin-Manuel Miranda Releases Salsa Remix of “Almost Like Praying”
The song was first released in October 2017 to raise funds for disaster relief in Puerto Rico.
This is what makes Puerto Ricans Puerto Ricans.
The undying spirit against adversity. My heart and soul have been aching since Hurricane María battered my country. The days after have been sadder as images come out of the utter devastation of a beautiful Caribbean Island.
The Puerto Rican spirit is battered but not broken after Maria.
I do not own these images.
No intention of taking credit.
If anyone knows the owner of any, please advise and it will be corrected immediately.
At 10:30am this morning, Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda released a salsa remix of “Almost Like Praying,” his single benefiting the Hispanic Federation’s “Unidos” Disaster Relief Fund for hurricane recovery and rebuilding initiatives in Puerto Rico. Spanish Broadcasting System teamed up with Miranda for a world-premiere radio launch of the remix in New York (Mega 97.9FM), Miami (El Nuevo Zol 106.7FM), and Puerto Rico (Estereotempo 96.5FM).
Miranda himself introduced the single, followed by an interview live from the SBS studios in New York City.
“The benefit single ‘Almost Like Praying’ has had tremendous success with audiences worldwide,” said Miranda. “As we now continue to help establish long-term self-sustainable initiatives to rebuild Puerto Rico, we are thrilled to bring this new version to Salsa-music fans. Although it has been over four months since Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico, the island still needs much help to get its most basic infrastructure up and running – including electricity, roads and bridges, healthcare and other vital programs.”
The original “Almost Like Praying” was released for download and streaming on October 6, 2017, and within its first week, hit No. 1 in digital sales in 17 countries. One hundred percent of the proceeds have gone to the Hispanic Federation’s “Unidos” Disaster Relief Fund, which has sponsored hundreds of initiatives to assist in the relief, recovery, and now rebuilding of Puerto Rico, a U.S. territory since 1898.
