8:34 am
you. >> my favorite interview of all time. >> this is a match made in heaven it seems to me. how did you get together and how did this idea come about? >> i had this song called "love make the world go round" for maybe eight months. i loved the song. i loved the hook. and when everything happened in orlando, kind of heard it in a different way for the first time. the world needs this right now. the world really needs the message of love being the answer. that's what really matters. that's what makes the world go round. nothing else. hate, anger, won't get us anywhere. so i decided that it needed a little rework. i wanted to put somebody on the bridge and great names came up and then lin's name came up. that's it. i had seen his speech on the tony's and thought he's a perfect person to do this with me. he said i have no time. i said we have to do this. i have to get on the phone with him. we did. once we spoke, he was,
