The talent of Mr Worldwide knows no bounds.

Internationally famous musical act and performer Pitbull is set to address the United Nations this week, with an intention on bringing to light the global water crisis which affects millions daily.

The Grammy Award-winning rapper, whose real name is Armando Christian Pérez, plans to bring up his two cents on the crisis, later being awarded the esteemed title of Clean Water Here Global Ambassador.

The pop megastar, known to many simply as Mr Worldwide, has lent his voice to the platform on several occasions, and will speak at the United Nation’s  New York headquarters on World Water Day, this Thursday, March 22.

While there, Pérez will discuss the ongoing global water crisis, before being awarded for his relentless humanitarian efforts to provide clean drinking water for disadvantaged communities across the world.

The Miami-native is leading the celebrity-driven social media campaign dubbed “Clean Water Here Cause Flash,” in hopes of raising awareness of the international crisis. Other participants also championing the cause include the likes of Bruno Mars, Pink, Maroon 5, Demi Lovato and many more.

The campaign aims to raise awareness of clean drinking water projects going on around the world.

On the same day, according to the Associated Press, U.N. General Assembly President Miroslav Lajcak is also set to launch a 10-year plan focused on sustainable development of water resources.
