Rollins College will be hosting a benefit concert for hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico next week featuring "The Voice" contestant and Orlando resident Christian Cuevas.

The college's music department will hold "Bringing Hope One Song at a Time: A Benefit for Puerto Rico featuring Christian Cuevas" on Friday, Nov. 17 at 7:30 p.m. inside the Knowles Memorial Chapel, according to a news release. Tickets are $20, and all proceeds will be donated to the Central Florida Foundation’s "Together for Puerto Rico: A Hurricane Recovery Fund."

Cuevas, a former student at Rollins' music department, was on season 11 of "The Voice" on R&B singer-songwriter Alicia Keys' team. Cuevas made it to the semifinal round before he was eliminated off the show. At next week's benefit concert, Cuevas will be singing original compositions and covers of artists who inspire him.

"I have loved ones and family in Puerto Rico," Cuevas said in a statement. "My success has given me a great desire to give back not only monetarily, but through bringing hope one song at a time."
