The trio announced Wednesday that they are creating “Q’Viva! The Chosen.” The show would feature the superstar couple as they travel 21 countries to find the best performers in Latin music, dance and other arts with the goal of creating a live extravaganza.READ MORE: 1 Hospitalized In Police-Involved Shooting In NW Miami

Lopez said the show will be groundbreaking.
“This is a show for the 21st century with an unprecedented global and local story. The Latin culture is a tapestry that is rich in passion, tradition and artistry,” she said. “We are going to places where all of this talent lives and wouldn’t have otherwise been discovered.”READ MORE: Judge: Surfside Collapse Property Owners Bumped Up To $96M
