Much of the money came from their own contributions, but they also received corporate donations and pledges. On October 14th, the trio hosted the benefit show One Voice: Somos Live! A Concert for Disaster Relief, which generated around $9 million, Billboard reports.

Both Lopez and Anthony’s parents came to the U.S. from Puerto Rico. Rodriguez’s family immigrated from the Dominican Republic.
