In an official statement, Kali Uchis expressed her enthusiasm for her involvement in the benefit, saying, "So honored to be headlining Selena for Sanctuary this year. Creating safe spaces and bringing awareness to the issues immigrant communities are facing is the goal. I can't wait celebrate our roots, our journeys, all while paying tribute to the inspirational icon Selena."
