Jay-Z’s streaming service, Tidal, made a lot of money for survivors of the hurricanes that swept through Central America this past summer. According to a report from Variety, the charity concert raised $3.7 million in support of people affected by the natural disasters.
Some of the celebrities who performed at the event included, Jennifer Lopez, DJ Khaled, Stevie Wonder, and Carbi B. The alcohol juggernaut, Bacardi, sponsored the event and committed $1.3 million to the relief efforts.
The event, which was hosted by Angie Martinez, also featured performances from people like Chris Brown, Fat Joe, Yo Gotti, A$AP Ferg, and Remy Ma.
Tidal has contributed to relief efforts in the past. According to reports, the organization sent four airplanes which carried 500,000 pounds of water, solar lamps, diapers, tarp, baby food, wipes, shoes, and other miscellaneous items for those stripped from their homes due to the storms.
As you may already know, many celebrities came out to share their love and support for victims of the storms, as well as earthquakes, that shook Latin and Central America.
Hurricane Maria, in particular, left the entire nation of Puerto Rico without electricity. Puerto Rico is a territory, belonging to the United States with many people in the US having associations with the country.
Some of these people include Frankie Muniz, Freddie Prince Junior, Eva LaRue, Chita Rivera, Michelle Rodriguez, Rosie Perez, Jennifer Lopez, Ricky Martin, Joaquin Phoenix, and Benicio Del Toro just to name a few.
Obviously, this list does not include the thousands of regular citizens of the USA that have associations with the country.
