And just after that, plenty of famous names in the Latin music joined their hands and gave their voices make the track “Almost Like Praying” which will benefit in rebuilding the island nation of Puerto Rico and helping its victims after the fatal disaster caused by the hurricane Maria.
Two weeks ago, the citizens of Puerto Rico were devastated and left in complete misery by the Hurricane Maria.
The population around that area is about 3.4 million people, who live on the Caribbean island and U.S. territory. Most of them were left without electricity and thousands have lost their homes because of the violent destructions caused by the storm. People were even in very bad need of food and fuel. Also, the lack of drinking water has caused severe tension in that area. The hospitals are suffering to operate properly in this extreme situation and the cell services are under the cloud of threat too.
International icons like Jennifer Lopez and Daddy Yankee have also donated a million dollars to help aid the facilities on the island nation so that the population of Peurto Rico can get back on its feet as soon as possible.
