Thirty years after Ricky Martin got his start in music in the Puerto Rican kids' group "Menudo," the Grammy-winning singer uses his music and celebrity to help fight against the trafficking of children. Fresh off a new album, "A Quien Quiera Escuchar," the 43-year-old Martin said he relishes getting in front of a crowd to talk about children forced into prostitution and pornography. "Not only in Puerto Rico, all over the world, here in the United States, huge numbers, when it comes to kids that are becoming slaves," Martin told Reuters in an interview this week. The "Livin' la Vida Loca" singer opened a center in Puerto Rico last year to combat oppression against children.
The organizers behind the Firefly Music Festival have eliminated single-day tickets for the four-day event. The decision to abandon the single-day ticket option, as reported by Billboard, is a bold move by organizers but one that could pay off -- with attendance this year predicted to be its first-ever sell-out, within the range of 90,000 fans a day.

Firefly Music Festival will take place June 18-21 in the The Woodlands behind the Dover International Speedway in the US state of Delaware.
