A group of music stars have come together to create a song in aid of relief efforts for the hurricane-battered island of Puerto Rico.

Almost Like Praying has been written by Lin-Manuel Miranda, musical creator of the hit Broadway show Hamilton.

Stars who have taken part include Gloria Estefan, Rita Moreno, Jennifer Lopez and Despacito singer Luis Fonsi.

Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico with high winds and heavy rain and much of the island remains without power.

Mr Miranda’s parents are from the US territory. He said the song’s inspiration came from his own efforts to contact loved ones after the storm, and also by the slow pace of relief efforts.
