A lineup of top recording artists and Broadway and Hollywood stars got together to record a song to benefit victims of the Orlando nightclub shootings. Rolling Stone reports that the stars, who included Lin-Manuel Miranda, Carole King, Gloria Estefan, Audra McDonald and Kristen Bell, did a cover of the 1965 Hal David-Burt Bacharach song “What the World Needs Now Is Love.”

“Proceeds will benefit the LGBT Center of Central Florida, which has been working with victims’ families and providing crisis counseling,” the story reports. “The Center also set up a GoFundMe page, whose proceeds go directly to victims and their families.”

More than 60 stars reportedly appear on the track. Among them are Idina Menzel, Wayne Brady, Matthew Broderick, Sara Bareilles, Megan Hilty, Rosie O’Donnell, Sarah Jessica Parker, Sutton Foster, Bernadette Peters, Fran Drescher, Nathan Lane, Sean Hayes and Whoopi Goldberg.
