Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodrigues, the prominent figures behind the successful benefit concert "One Voice: Somos Live! A Concert for Disaster Relief", received nothing but praises from both the general public and fellow A-list stars. Along with big names such as Marc Anthony, Ellen De Genres, and Stevie Wonder, the celebrity couple managed to raise more than $30 million for the residents of Puerto Rico who were severely affected by Hurricanes Maria and Irma.
The event on Saturday was also a telethon in which Kim Kardashian was a participant, encouraging viewers to donate money toward aid groups such as American Red Cross, Reach Out Worldwide, United Way, United for Puerto Rico.
Awe-inspiring performances were offered not just by the couple but also Ricky Martin, Chris Martin, Gwen Stefani, Demi Lovato, Maroon 5, and Mary J. Blige.
Dubbed as a historical undertaking, the benefit concert not only sufficiently raised funds for the disaster but it also further unified the Latin community, strengthening ties between families such as that of J.Lo and her loved ones in Puerto Rico.
