As an act of solidarity, Alejandro Sanz will unite with the ALAS foundation next Saturday by giving a concert to aid hurricane victims in Central America. The performance will take place in the Estadio Nacional in Managua, Nicaragua.

“We’re going to work very hard in [Central America]…Solidarity is no longer going to be an exceptional thing, I think it should be something that all of us have in mind already. It’s something that we’re going to have to get used to, because the climate is changing and [creating] more disasters,” the 38-year-old singer told Nicaraguan newspaper El Nuevo Diario.

The artist added that the concert will be a show “that they’ll remember for awhile.”

Reports inform that the “Corazón partío” singer will take advantage of the trip to lend a hand – will the help of the ALAS foundation – to various non-governmental foundations that work in the region.

According to Mexican daily EL Universal, Colombian singer Shakira, spokesperson for ALAS, recently made a million-dollar donation. The money will be channeled to Nicaraguan organizations that support victims of Hurricane Felix, which hit Latin American in September.
