People en Español is joining forces with Telemundo for their four-hour television special Todos Unidos, a solidarity program that will be broadcast this Sunday, September 24 at 7 PM EST. Armando Correa, the magazine’s editor-in-chief will be live all four hours from the People VIP studios in New York hosting celebrities like Jennifer Lopez, Daddy Yankee and Carlos Ponce, among others.
The program aims to raise funds for the victims of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico and the earthquake in Mexico this week. Mario Kreutzberger, otherwise known as Don Francisco, an icon of television always committed to causes and people most in need will be leading the broadcast.
The two brands are coming together in this program in order to help the hundreds affected in México and Puerto Rico. “This is the time for us all to unite and help the Mexican and Puerto Rican people. Each of us, if we contribute a grain of sand, we can make the difference,” says the respected Cuban journalist.
“The images are very sad after the hurricane and the earthquake. But I am excited to see the response of neighbors, celebrities, the world over to save lives, rebuild the country,” says Correa.

Today’s show will also feature simultaneous broadcasts from Miami, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Houston and Los Angeles through the Telemundo network and the cable network Universo.
