The “She Bangs” singer worked tirelessly to help those affected by Hurricane Maria in his native island of Puerto Rico in September 2017. “I don’t sleep, I’m in creative mode trying to see how we can bring love and hope to my people in Puerto Rico,” Martin, who raised for than $4 million for the cause, told Us Weekly in October 2017. “We are alive. Even though we lost everything, we didn’t lose hope, we are smiling, and we’re fighting for what needs to happen for Puerto Rico to be back to what it was.” He also previously teamed up with Habitat for Humanity to help after the tsunami in Thailand in 2005 and after the 2010 earthquake in Haiti.
