"What's on my mind is what's going on in Puerto Rico. The devastation is beyond belief," said Lopez, who in Las Vegas for her residency show. She said that she and her cousin still haven't been able to contact family members there.
She added, "Today, Puerto Rico needs our help. I urge you to support and donate to the efforts of the First Lady of Puerto Rico, Beatriz Rosselló. Together we can help rebuild our island and the Caribbean."
