Jennifer Lopez will perform two concerts in Puerto Rico this weekend that will be filmed for television and shown throughout the United States.
"It's going to be something very beautiful, and I really believe it's a show that comes from my soul and my heart," she said, speaking in Spanish.
Born in New York to Puerto Rican parents, Lopez said she had wanted to hold the concerts in San Juan "for my music and my people."
Lopez, who arrived here Monday, is to perform Friday and Saturday at the Roberto Clemente Coliseum.
The concert is to be taped by NBC and will be shown in late November, promoters said.
