In the wake of Hurricane Maria, Puerto Rico is still feeling its devastating effects. More than 90% of the island’s residents are still without power and any progress made is washed away by torrential rains that continue to fall. And, of course, 45 is threatening to pull vital support from FEMA, first responders and the military because he’s a terrible person.
Fortunately, there are some people who genuinely care for the people of Puerto Rico, and they are ready to raise some big money to aid them. Jennifer Lopez, who already donated $1 million to relief efforts herself, teamed up with her ex-husband Marc Anthony to form Somos Uno Voz (We Are One Voice), a humanitarian effort for the victims of Maria. The first big event planned by the initiative is a live fundraising concert and telethon called One Voice: Somos Live!
Marc, along with friends Nicky Jam and Vin Diesel, announced the concert with a clip on Twitter on Wednesday, asserting “We here, we’re strategizing, all in the name of bringing you the best show possible.” Also in the clip, Nicky said he was collaborating with Vin on a song he dubbed “the biggest thing happening in the world”, dedicated to the people of Puerto Rico. Nicky added, “Vin is very, very shy when it comes about his music. I’m the guy who got him into the studio for the first time, and I’m trying to get him out of the studio now.” Vin then interjected, “Can’t stop, won’t stop,” so maybe Nicky will be able to get him on stage. Marc later tweeted another clip of the boys cutting up in a sweet house, with the caption, “These voices are so powerful!”

It won’t take long for us to find out if we will be treated to the song stylings of Vin Diesel, as the concert happens this Saturday at Miami’s Marlins Park. The Somos Live show will feature performances by Marc and Nicky, along with artists including DJ Kahled, Prince Royce and Daddy Yankee. Jennifer, beau Alex Rodriguez and stars including Selena Gomez, Ricky Martin, Demi Lovato, Sofia Vergara and more, will appear via satellite from Los Angeles. The event is so big that rival networks Univision and Telemundo are joining together to simultaneously air the concert live as it happens. The two networks, through their own, independently aired telethons, have already raised a combined $20 million for aid hurricane relief efforts in Puerto Rico and Mexico.
Marc also took a moment to blast 45 for his handling of the situation in Puerto Rico. On Thursday, he railed, “Mr. President rest assured that you will be held accountable for every AMERICAN life needlessly lost in Puerto Rico because of your tone-deaf, idiotic, callous and disrespectful approach. History has a way of remembering. Until our last breath, we will not forget.#RISEUP”

In these tumultuous times, it’s kind of life affirming to see so many people come together and help out those in need I applaud the efforts of Jennifer and Marc (and all of the people putting together this benefit) and home it raises a lot of money to help the people of Puerto Rico.
