She has also been honored by the Human Rights Campaign with their Ally for Equality Award for her commitment to better the lives of LGBTQ people. Following Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria, Lopez donated $1 million to humanitarian aid for Puerto Rico and launched a humanitarian relief campaign entitled Somos Una Voz, an effort supported by various celebrities to rush supplies to areas affected by Hurricane Maria.
In addition, Lopez presented a subsequent concert and telethon for disaster relief, “One Voice: Somos Live! “, which raised over $35 million. She and fiancée Alex Rodriguez also visited Puerto Rico just after Hurricane Maria struck the island to help bring awareness to the situation at hand and speak with Puerto Ricans firsthand to understand where help was needed most.

The album’s “Run Away Child, Running Wild” is a sprawling, nine-minute and 21-second piece that moves from its first half with vocals (the part extracted for the album’s second single) into an instrumental jam session, featuring Motown’s Funk Brothers band withEarl Van Dykeon swirling organ, andDennis Coffeyand “Wah Wah”Watsonon guitars.
Influenced by Sly the Family Stone’s provocative fusion of rock ‘n’ roll, RB, and funk, and set against the social and political turbulence of late 1960s America,Cloud Nineintroduced a notable new direction for The Temptations’ style, while also helping to pave the way to 1970s funk/soul. “You can’t expect to last if you don’t make some changes with the times,” Temptations leader and founding memberOtis Williamssaid of the album.
“What really grabbed me was Sly the Family Stone’s first hits. ” “‘Cloud Nine’ and ‘Run Away Child, Running Wild’ not only work as pop protestbut bear witness to how funky these smoothies have become. “–Robert Christgau The album is not all psychedelic soul, however, with “Hey Girl” and “Don’t Let Him Take Your Love From Me” strongly showcasing The Temptations’ classic harmonies, aural depth, and unvarnished feeling.
“Don’t Let Him Take Your Love From Me” had been previously recorded byJimmy Ruffin, while “Hey Girl” was originally a Top 10 ballad in 1963 forFreddie Scott. The Temptations’ first new album in eight years,All The Time, was releasedMay 4, 2018by UMe.
