Ricky Martin fans to celebrate his 40th birthdayDecember 24th, 2011 - 12:04 pm ICT by IANS
San Juan, Dec 24 (IANS/EFE) Puerto Rican singer Ricky Martin is turning 40 and to help him celebrate, his millions of fans are putting together on social networks the 40 most memorable things about the artist.
These key moments and happenings in the artist’s life have been tweeted on Twitter over the past five weeks via the hashtag #TSARM, or “There’s Something About Ricky Martin.”
The “somethings” go from his first steps as an artist when he sang into a tablespoon pretending it was a microphone, to his two sons, Matteo and Valentino, born in 2008 of the artificial insemination of a surrogate mother.
His fans also highlight the Puerto Rican artist’s tatoos, his autobiography “Yo”, his roles in Broadway musicals, his duets with artists like Pavarotti, Madonna, Cristina Aguilera and La Mari, and his foundation that combats human trafficking around the world.
Another key moment noted by fans of the vocalist of “Livin’ la Vida Loca”, “Maria” and “She Bangs” was his rendition of “La Copa de la Vida” (The Best Time of Life) at the 1999 Latin Grammys, which helped rocket him to international fame.
