Not only the ‘On the Floor’ hosts the Puerto Rico benefit concert and telethon, but she also performs several of her hit songs at the concert.
Jennifer Lopez, together with boyfriend Alex Rodriguez and ex-husband Marc Anthony, organized a benefit concert and telethon for disaster relief in Puerto Rico called “One Voice: Somos Live!” in Miami and Los Angeles on Saturday, October 14. Not only the singer hosted the concert, but she also performed several of her hit songs.
The “Shades of Blue” star expressed her gratitude at the concert, saying, “Tonight, we are all here as one voice, to declare loudly and clearly in English and Spanish to every man woman and child in Puerto Rico and beyond that you are not forgotten, you are not alone.”
“We are all here to help, not just because you are Americans but also because you are family, familia,” she added. “This disaster hits very close to home. We will never forget those terrifying days where many of us could not find our friends and family, and hear their beautiful voices.”
Jennifer performed several of her hit songs including “Let’s Get Loud”, “Ni Tu Ni Yo” and more.
Other artists like Bruno Mars, DJ Khaled and more also lent their voices at the concert. While Bruno performed a Spanish version of “Just The Way You Are” for the first time, Khaled performed a medley of his songs, bringing T.I., Fat Joe and Busta Rhymes with him.
Celebrities such as Kim Kardashian, Vanessa Hudgens and Selena Gomez also lent their supports by taking donations over the phone. Kim told fans to participate on her Snapchat account, “Hey guys, we are going to start answering some of the phones. We’re here at the telethon, so tune in and watch. Call in, please donate.”
The concert aired on Telemundo and Univision in Spanish from 8-10 P.M., while NBC aired the third hour in English at 10:00 P.M. MTV also held a live-stream for the concert on Facebook, YouTube and Twitter.
