This week Ricky Martin met with Uruguay’s President, Jose Mujica wearing his child-advocacy hat to promote awareness of child slavery and children in the sex trade.

The Puerto Rican singer was in the country as part of his ‘Musica+Alma+Sexo” 2011 tour.  From here the singer is heading to Argentina, the longest leg of his tour, for 7 days of performances.

The Ricky Martin Foundation advocates for the well being of children around the globe in critical areas of social justice, education and health while its principal mission is to bring attention to trafficking of children. Martin is the single father of twin sons, Matteo and Valentino, born via surrogacy.  Last year the ‘Livin’ la Vida Loca’ singer came out as a gay man ending years of speculation.
