Raising money for victims of Hurricane Maria. I love the fact that this is a credible Spanglish anthem that doesn't sound like every other charity collaboration record.
The song is a compilation sung by numerous artists such as Jennifer Lopez, Camila Cabello, Gloria Estefan, Fat Joe, and Marc Anthony. It also includes samples from the song "Maria" from West Side Story. The song title is from that song's line "say it [Maria] softly, it's almost like praying". Other artists on the song include Ruben Blades, Pedro Capo, Dessa, Luis Fonsi, Juan Luis Guerra, Alex Lacamoire, John Leguizamo, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Rita Moreno, Ednita Nazario, Joell Ortiz, Anthony Ramos, Gina Rodriguez, Gilberto Santa Rosa, PJ Sin Suela, Ana Villafañe, Pedro Capo and Tommy Torres. The sound of the Puerto Rican coqui frog can be heard at the beginning and the end of the song.
