The birth of her twins Max and Emme seems to have awakened the philanthropist in Jennifer López. The Puerto Rican singer will devote some of her time to helping sick kids. JLo will host the third annual Noche de Niños gala to benefit the Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles, CA, as reported by the Associated Press. The 39-year-old singer and actress will help coordinate the fundraising event, which will include a performance by husband Marc Anthony. Mexican rock band Maná, Spanish singer Alejandro Sanz and Colombian pop sensation Juanes are also confirmed.

The star of Maid in Manhattan said her two-month-old twins have inspired her in many ways. “”They inspire me to want to be better, to be a better person, to do something for the world, to set an example for them, to make them proud of me and to know that there’s a certain way that you should live,” Lopez said.

The Noche de Niños gala will be held on October 11th at Nokia Center in Los Angeles to benefit the 93,000 children treated annually at the hospital.
