Marc Anthony, Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez Headline Disaster Relief Concert at Marlins Park

Some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry teamed up Saturday, performing at a benefit concert for Puerto Rico, South Florida, the Caribbean and Mexico at Marlins Park.

Marc Anthony, Jennifer Lopez, Gente de Zona, Camila, Daddy Yankee and Alejandro Sanz, along with others, performed at "One Voice: Somos Live! A Concert for Disaster Relief" Saturday.

Nearly 35,000 people packed Marlins Park to see some of their favorite stars which included musicians, actors and tv personalities coming together for one cause.

Somos Una Voz is an alliance of artists created by Lopez and Anthony to aid those in need from the effects of recent natural disasters.

"We wanted to host this once-in-a-lifetime event at Marlins Park to bring our local community together for a great cause," said Marlins CEO Derek Jeter. "Many were impacted by the earthquake in Mexico and Hurricanes Irma and Maria, and great talents will unite on this special night to create lasting memories and raise funds that will help families recover and rebuild."

Many concertgoers said they were not satisfied with the government’s response to the crisis in Puerto Rico.

"I think we could do more," said Jennifer Rivera. "I have a lot of family in the island and I feel like we could do a lot more."

Funds raised from the telethon will benefit Feeding America, Save the Children, Habitat for Humanity, Unidos for Puerto Rico, United Way and UNICEF.

"I wanna help out the most that I can, and since I’m not famous or anything this is like practically the one way I could help," said concertgoer Ashley Bosch.
