Lopez, born in New York to par­ents from Puerto Rico, re­cently do­nated $1 mil­lion to re­lief for Hur­ri­cane Maria, which has brought cat­a­strophic dam­age to the is­land’s elec­tric­ity and other in­fra­struc­ture.

Jay-Z’s wife and singer Bey­oncé, who re­cently gave birth to twins and is not sched­uled to per­form, ear­lier promised long-term help for her home­town Hous­ton as it re­builds from Har­vey.
