Some excited fans lined up before dawn to see Ricky in person. Carla Farias told CBS 4′s Lauren Pastrana, “I love him! I need to see him. I want for my daughter to have the book signed.”
“I think he’s a great person. He’s always kind with everyone. He’s always very generous with the people,” Saravia said. “He’s going to be very famous with the kids now.”
Martin is set to make another fan’s dream come true. The Latin superstar has been confirmed by world soccer governing body FIFA as a judge of a contest to choose a song for the official 2014 World Cup album.
“I am extremely happy and humbled that I was asked to launch this special contest where fans have an opportunity to co-write the final version of the song with me,” Martin said.
“I think it is a brilliant idea and I’m grateful to be part of this important initiative.”
Check out his tweet about the contest below.
