Jennifer Lopez knows how to get on the show! The 53-year-old singer took the stage on Saturday at UNICEF’s sixth annual Luisaviaroma in Capri, Italy, in support of Ukraine and the people of Ukraine, amid the ongoing Russian invasion of the country.

Lopez hit the stage in a stunning zebra print number by Roberto Cavalli. The jumpsuit featured sequined detailing as well as feathered embellishments. She also carried a zebra-printed feather boa-type cape to cap off the look. In performance photos, the “On My Way (Marry Me)” singer dazzled as she performed some of her biggest hits, twisting and being picked up on stage by a bevy of dancers.

Lopez made her mini-concert debut with two of her biggest hits, “If You Had My Love” and “Waiting for Tonight”. Lopez thanked fans for coming to see her, telling the crowd that Saturday night her looks and performance were “disco giving,” reminiscent of her time as a little girl growing up in the Bronx.

“We’re giving a disco tonight. You know what it reminds me of? It reminds me of when I was a little girl in the Bronx,” Lopez said.

She continued, “My mom used to watch those award shows, those big gala – it’s like a big gala tonight. Remember when they used to show them on TV? And they always had some amazing singers coming, like, You guys remember Donna Summer? Yes? Chaka Khan? And the wonderful Ms. Diana Ross. She used to come out with her big hair and her gorgeous gown.”

Lopez shared her disco fantasies with the audience, before asking attendees if they would mind staying in a “world of glitter” for the evening.

“I want to walk around my house in a glittery hue. That’s right, that’s what I love to do. I just wanted to be in a world of glitter. I’ve always wanted to be a disco dance diva. And you know, I really got to live a little bit of it when i did the movie selena Years ago,” she revealed, “but I never got to do it on my own. Would you guys mind if I live out my disco diva fantasy with you here tonight?”

In addition to her hits, Lopez performed some disco classics, including Chaka Khan’s “I’m Every Woman,” Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive” and Gloria Estefan’s “Turn the Beat Around.”

He closed the show thanking the audience for their support. “I give you my heart. I give you everything I have. I love you. Thank you,” Lopez shouted before exiting the stage.

The gala was hosted by Jamie Foxx, who auctioned off 22 items for the UNICEF charity event, including tickets to the premiere of Leonardo DiCaprio’s latest film.

In addition to Foxx and DiCaprio, who were in attendance on Saturday night, there were many other big names in the audience including Casey Affleck, Vanessa Hudgens, Jared Leto, Ansel Elgort, and more.

Lopez’s show in the Italian city comes as the singer arrives in the Mediterranean country after traveling to Paris, France, just days after tying the knot with Ben Affleck.

A source told ET at the time that the trip to City of Lights was not a honeymoon but just a vacation.

“Ben and Jen had the best time in Paris,” a source told ET. “They went to the most popular restaurants and really had the time of their lives. It was great to be away with their kids and just eat, relax, celebrate Jane’s birthday and take some time off from work. Jane and Ben both love Paris. do, and Jen in particular finds it very romantic.”

The source adds that their kids “had a lot of fun with them too,” while the couple still managed to find time to be alone together. The family was seen enjoying a Seine river cruise, while Lopez and Affleck made headlines for their effortlessly chic nighttime style.

“Jane is feeling great and wants to look romantic and more relaxed, sweet for her Paris trip,” says the source. “She didn’t want to look exactly the same when she’s in L.A., but also wanted easy, comfortable clothes because they were going around town a lot and exploring as a family.”
