Ricky Martin Pleads For Puerto Rico Help On 'Ellen DeGeneres Show' (VIDEO) #MMBMusic
Ricky Martin pleaded for help for Puerto Rico on Thursday’s “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” The island remains in a state of emergency in the wake of Hurricane Maria. Watch the video above.
Martin, who was born and raised in San Juan, found his spirits immediately lifted by the energy of the talk show’s crowd. But quite seriously, DeGeneres said, “You are here for something really important, and I am so happy you’re here to talk about it with us because boy, oh, boy, does the world need help right now. But tell everybody what you’re doing.” The singer then thanked the host for “letting me talk to your audience.”
Then, very solemnly, Martin said, “Ladies and gentlemen, I am from Puerto Rico and right now Puerto Rico is suffering. We were destroyed by a hurricane and it has been very difficult. Right now there is no water, there is no electricity, there is no food, there is no medicine, there is no diesel for the generators that will make the hospital work. People are dying. So, as a Puerto Rican, as an American that I am, I am here to ask for your help.”
