Jennifer Lopez returned to New York City on Sunday to attend a press conference with the city’s governor, Andrew Cuomo.
In the intimate gathering, Lopez announced that she will be donating $1 million from the proceeds of her Las Vegas shows to help those who were affected by the two massive hurricanes in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean, according to Entertainment Weekly.
She will also be joined by Alex Rodriguez, a former MLB player.
The 48-year-old singer made her donation public via a live-streamed post on her Twitter account. Lopez shared the good news to everyone in both Spanish and English languages.

“Alex and I, who are both New Yorkers, are utilizing all our resources and relationships in entertainment, sports and business to garner support for Puerto Rican and Caribbean relief efforts,” she said.
On top of the $1 million donation she will shell out from her Las Vegas earning, the “Shades of Blue” actress also revealed that the MLB have committed to sharing a generous amount for the relief efforts in both areas.
Lopez’s ex-husband, Marc Anthony, will also be helping the victims financially.
“I have been moved by the initial responses. They have been overwhelming and no one has said no. Anybody we have called is right there asking what they can do. They’re all very eager to help,” she said.
Lopez has also reached out to “Shark Tank” star Mark Cuban and Dallas Mavericks Puerto Rican player J.J. Barea.
The two will be sending out their airplanes to transport supplies and generators to Puerto Rico, but are still awaiting air clearance.
