Jencarlos Canela

Jencarlos Canela is an award-winning musician whose most recent "Jen" was released on Universal Music Latin and star of multiple top-rated telenovelas, such as “Mi Corazon Insiste.” Inspired by his father’s journey from Cuba, Jencarlos has been volunteering with the IRC in Miami for several years and visited Haiti twice, in 2011 and 2013.

Jencarlos and the IRC

“I very much identify with the IRC’s mission to help children and their families fleeing dangerous situations,” Jencarlos says. “I can’t think of a more rewarding use of my time than to use my voice to support their life-saving work. Being able to help people in need is my dream.”
