Juanes will perform for Pope Francis, as well as thousands in person, and millions watching live around the world during the World Meeting of Families, which will be held in the United States (Philadelphia) for the first time ever on September 26. In a press conference held this morning in Rome, the Colombian superstar was named as one of the first performers, alongside Italian classical tenor Andrea Bocelli and The Philadelphia Orchestra.

Juanes’ performance for the Holy Father in Philadelphia will follow soon after his summer tour dates across Europe and The United States for his critically acclaimed “Loco de Amor” Tour. “The most important mission we have in this journey of life is to learn to love, what better way than through the family. I am deeply honored by the invitation to sing for Pope Francis,” he stated in the press communicate.

Co-sponsored by the Holy See’s Pontifical Council for the Family and the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, the World Meeting of Families is a triennial global event that seeks to strengthen the sacred bonds of family across the globe and highlight its intrinsic value to the good of society. This international gathering will welcome Pope Francis to the U.S. for the first time in his Papacy.
