Love is in the air! Literally. Jennifer Lopez performed on a Central Park stage for Global Citizen's live concert event making it a big night since it is one of her post-pandemic scenarios. The American singer who has been on the news every day thanks to her rekindled romance with Ben Affleck sang some of her classic songs like “If You Had My Love” and “Love Don’t Cost a Thing.” However, we could say that the highlight of the night was when LL Cool J and Ja Rule joined her to sing “All I Have” and “I’m Real”/“Ain’t It Funny.
Now, the interesting part comes when it was later revealed that her beau American actor Ben Affleck flew from Austin to New York City to be by her side. According to People, some sources claim that after all, Ben is her fan #1. "Jennifer and Ben were apart for a few days earlier this week. They met up in N.Y.C. yesterday," the insider says. "Ben wanted to be by her side and attended the event. He watched her perform."
"They are always supportive of each other's careers," the source adds. "Ben has to be in Texas to film this coming week." In case you are wondering, apparently, Affleck was in Austin working on his latest project, made a stop in Los Angeles to visit his kids, and later traveled to New York.
At the end of the event, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck were spotted, and here is when we can exclaim “This is it, he truly is a gentleman.' While they were heading out Jen was having some trouble walking down some stairs. She was wearing an oversized t-shirt with her name and face on it (in case you spot her on the street and do not recognize her, duh,) ripped jeans but keeping the glamour with a pair of high stilettos. Ben simply held her hand and patiently helped her down.
The purpose of Global Citizen Live was to raise awareness about vaccination equity but also to raise the voice about important subjects like the hunger crisis and climate needs of developing countries. Many other artists performed here like BTS, Billie Eilish, Coldplay, Elton John, Lizzo, and many, many more.
"It's always such an honor to be here with so many people, so many loving people, trying to do so many amazing things together," she said onstage. "And because of that, tonight I want to do something special."
What did Jennifer Lopez do? The singer surprised everyone by singing a new song. "Do you guys mind if I do a song that no one has heard?" Lopez asked the audience. "Because it's a special occasion, and I thought, 'What special thing can I do?' This song is about pushing through old mistakes and finding your destiny ... But this is just for you guys here tonight. I want to share this with you because I feel, I feel, what I know is that we are on our way."
