Ricky Martin honored in Puerto Rico

Ricky Martin showed the world how it's done at Puerto Rico's Las Fiestas de la Calle San Sebastian, this past weekend. Puerto Rico honored its native son for his charitable and civic work, including that of the foundation that bears his name, which operates in defense of abused children. San Sebastian National Prizes are awarded to individuals and institutions that have made significant contributions to education, the arts and culture of Puerto Rico. On being honored at the lively 4-day street festival, Martin said:

Las Fiestas de la Calle San Sebastián, es un evento histórico que promueve nuestra cultura y nos refuerza el orgullo de ser puertorriqueño. Agradezco a mi pueblo querido por siempre tenerme presente.
