Jennifer Lopez, Alex Rodriguez and Marc Anthony team up for benefit concert
On Wednesday (Oct. 11) Marc Anthony shared a video on Twitter, announcing he, Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez are teaming up for a star-studded benefit concert and telecast on Oct. 14, a collaboration between Telemundo, Univision and NBC.
The event is called One Voice: Somos Live! A Concert for Disaster Relief and it will raise funds to provide food, shelter and more to victims of recent natural disasters in the southern United States, Mexico and Caribbean islands including Puerto Rico.
The trio first joined forces to launch humanitarian aid initiative, Somos Una Voz (We Are One Voice), last month, in a bid to raise funds for those in areas left devastated by hurricanes and earthquakes in Mexico, Puerto Rico, Florida and Texas.
With a view to the success of the event, the artists are planning the televised One Voice: Somos Live!, and it will mark the first time that two Spanish language networks broadcast the same event.
Other stars will take part in the initiative, such as Demi Lovato, Ricky Martin, Gwen Stefani, Camila Cabello, Maroon 5, Stevie Wonder and Chris Martin. Other names expected to appear include Christina Aguilera, Selena Gomez, Heidi Klum, Tyler Perry, Sean Combs, Gina Rodriguez and Seth Green.
The concert will be hosted by Jennifer and Alex, and proceeds from the shows will go towards several organisations including Save the Children, UNICEF, Habitat for Humanity, Unidos for Puerto Rico, Feeding America and United Way.
