JLo & Marc Anthony Launch #SomosUnaVoz To Aid In The Relief For Puerto Rico
Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony announced a new initiative, #SomosUnaVoz (We Are One Voice), a humanitarian alliance with influential figures across different industries, to help Puerto Rico in the devastating wake of Hurricana Maria. The U.S territory endures in dire need of many basic necessities, including running water, electricity, and forms of communication.
While Number45 tweets away nonsense, the former couple unite and call for action, reuniting an impressive roster of participants to help with the cause. Among them Bruno Mars, Daddy Yankee, Alex Rodriguez, Ed Sheeran, Jada Pinkett Smith, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Luis Fonsi, Pitbull, Ricky Martin, Vin Diesel and many others que dicen PRESENTE for Puerto Rico!
Lopez and Anthony started promoting the initiative on their social media on Wednesday and have already raised over 440K+.
Lopez, whose parents were born in Ponce, Puerto Rico, has been a vocal supporter of helping the residents of the ravaged island since the hurricane struck on Sept. 20. On Saturday, she announced in New York City that she would be donating $1 million from the proceeds of her Las Vegas residency. “The conditions are dire,” she said in a press conference with Governor Andrew Cuomo. “We need to do as much as we can to help the people of Puerto Rico.”
