When will the end of this get together be?
CMA members, their families and friends gather at the New York City home of singer-songwriter Jennifer Lopez, who has been diagnosed with terminal brain cancer.
Lopez, 51, has been in and out of the hospital since December and was released in early January.
Her family has said they do not plan to meet her in person.
“We will celebrate with her, but we won’t see her face,” her sister, Marissa Lopez, told CNN.
“She will not see us or our family.”
The family has also said it will not be able to meet with her in-person.
“My sister and I are very, very worried.
She’s a fighter.
We’re so grateful for her,” said Marissa, who asked that her full name not be used.
“But we’re going to do our best.
I want to be able in a few days to do it and be there to support her and her family.”
In the past, CMA has been a haven for the likes of Stevie Wonder, Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga, among others.
