Ricardo Arjona Visits Children From The First School Of His Foundation [PHOTOS]

Ricardo Arjona took a break from his busy schedule to pay a special visit to some of his youngest fans. The Guatemalan singer spent an entire day at the first school of his foundation, Escuela Adentro Nohemí Morales de Arjona, where he attended with a group of musicians and staff members who form part of his "Viaje Tour." Before a group of excited schoolchildren, the production manager of the tour, Roly Garbalosa, talked about his work and what it takes to make a concert. The musicians later delighted the crowd with their tunes before Arjona surprised everyone in the audience. 

The 51-year-old Latin GRAMMY winner crooned his youngest fans with hits such as "Histora del Taxi," "Fuiste Tu" and "Mujeres," amongst others. In addition to his impromptu concert, Arjona took the time to shoot some hoops with the kids in a game of basketball. He also donated 510,000 quetzales to the school, which is roughly about $66,000.  

Before saying his farewell, Arjona let the schoolchildren know that it's important to be passionate about something.

"Things that are done with passion, with hunger, are better," he said. "They [his team and musicians] are here to show you what can happen when you do things with passion. All of them are here because they've been passionate since they were kids, like you."
