The pair are sure to join each other on stage once again. Joining them for the second day are Ozuna, Natti Natasha, Pedro Capo, Sebastian Yatra, Tito El Bambino, Reik, Dalex, Play N’ Skillz and Lyanno. Univision is using the concert series for a special cause. Although it was announced prior to the tragic mass shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio, over the weekend, the network is using the opportunity to raise money for victims and their families.
Concertgoers will have the chance to donate to the El Paso Community Foundation, Paso del Norte Community Foundation and the Dayton Foundation. The first $50,000 raised from the two concerts will be matched by Univision. For the fans who cannot make it to the shows, they will have the chance to make donations via Univision’s charity page.
“Following the tragic events in El Paso, we are honored to do our part to bring the local Latino community in Dallas and Houston together and to provide an opportunity for fans to support local organizations assisting those impacted on-site and via our first-ever livestream,” Jesus Lara, president of radio at Univision said in a statement. Day two will be streamed live on the Uforia site, Twitter and Facebook.
