In the wake of Hurricane Maria’s devastation in Puerto Rico, the music world has banded together to raise funds and send relief to the U.S. territory. A Billboard report catalogs the upcoming roster of live events for hurricane relief, planned by stars like JAY-Z, Marc Anthony and Major Lazer.
This Saturday (Oct. 14) in Miami, Marc Anthony’s “We Are One Voice SOMOS Live!” will feature DJ Khaled, Daddy Yankee, Alejandro Sanz and others. In addition to Puerto Rico relief, the event will support Mexico City earthquake recovery efforts and other hurricane-impacted areas in south Florida and the Caribbean. Meanwhile, Major Lazer has recruited Tory Lanez, Machel Montano and Bad Bunny for “Relief is the Mission,” scheduled for Monday, October 16. All proceeds support hurricane relief.
This Sunday (Oct 15) in Los Angeles, “Voices for Puerto Rico LA” at the Conga Room will include appearances by Aloe Blacc, Wayne Brady, Adrienne Baillon and “surprise guests.” The family-friendly evening will admit kids 10 and younger free of charge.
Finally, JAY-Z’s epic October 17 lineup at Brooklyn’s Barclay’s Center features Jennifer Lopez, DJ Khaled, Kaskade, Chris Brown, Cardi B, Fat Joe, Remy Ma, Daddy Yankee, Yo Gotti, A$AP Ferg, Vic Mensa, Fifth Harmony, Joey Bada$$, Willow Smith, Belly, Iggy Azalea and more.
