NEW YORK (FOX 5 NEWS) - A huge plane at JFK Airport was loaded with items collected from a drive organized by the local hip-hop community. About 200,000 pounds of relief supplies collected by the community will be bound for Puerto Rico.
One of the driving forces behind this effort is international superstar Romeo Santos. Lisa Evers interviewed him at JFK Airport.
The turnout and the volume of supplies were overwhelming. Jay Z paid for a plane to take the donations to the island, but one wasn't enough so he added four more. He got Tidal Music involved in a big way by sponsoring a major drive at the Javits Center. It brought volunteers, the music industry, and Army National Guard together for a good cause.
