Jennifer Lopez and Lin-Manuel Miranda shared the "love" with New York City on Monday morning.

The duo hit the stage at Rockefeller Plaza to perform their new song, "Love Make the World Go Round," on the Today show. The track is a tribute to the victims of the Orlando, Florida shooting last month, and proceeds of the song, which is available on Itunes, will go directly to the Somos Orlando Fund. "Basically, the money's going to go to mental health services and services for the families of the victims and the greater Orlando area," Miranda explained.

"The world needs this right now -- the world really needs the message of love being the answer," Lopez told Today of her new song. "That's what really matters and that's what makes the world go 'round, and nothing else. Hate, anger -- it's not going to get us anywhere."

Lopez, 46, joked that she "stalked" Miranda -- who gave his final Hamilton performance on Saturday night -- to collaborate with her on the track after hearing his "Love is love is love" speech at the Tony Awards.

Prior to their Today performance, Lopez and Miranda were spotted filming the music video for their song in New York City last Friday. The video shoot took place on the rooftop of the Richard Rodgers Theatre -- the same theater that Hamilton plays. "As the shoot went on, more and more fans arrived and it began to get really crazy," an eyewitness told ET. "The theater is by Times Square, so of course everyone just started gathering and it got insane."

"You could tell considering everything going on right now that they were emotional because of the song's deep meaning," the eyewitness added. "But they kept the vibe upbeat and positive."
