Jennifer López: You can build walls, but we all make America great
It was the 2020 NFL super bowl halftime performance, but few minutes to her performance, Jenifer Lopez and her daughter Emme Maribel Muñiz were captured backstage.
Reflecting on the moment before they hit stage, the American singer said some people may try to build walls or cage them, but all she wanted is for her girl, and other girls and the entire world to know how to use their voices and be proud of everything they are. In Jlo’s words:
“These moments were captured just minutes before we hit the stage last night. All I want my girls, the little girls on stage with me and all over the world to know is how to use their voices and be proud of everything they are.”
“Other people can try to build walls, keep us out or put us in cages. We are proud to recognize that all of us together are what makes this beautiful country truly great. ✨❤️?? #LetsGetLoud #BornInTheUSA #SuperBowlLIV”
