Latin Boy Band Menudo Lends Vocal Talents to Love. Hugs. Peace.™ Movement -- Encourages Philanthropy among Youth

ST. LOUIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The legendary Latin Boy Band Menudo burst onto the music scene from Puerto Rico in the 1970s, and has since helped launch the career of international superstar Ricky Martin. Today, more than two generations later, a new version of Menudo is back with a contemporary look and sound, and the same universal appeal. Now Menudo members, JC, JG, Carlos Jr. and Monti are lending their collective voices to the Love. Hugs. Peace.™ movement, a global giving and kindness campaign created by Build-A-Bear Workshop® that offers young people around the world fun and simple ways to show they care.

Menudo joins fellow singers, including GRAMMY® award-winning Natalie Cole, David Archuleta of “American Idol” fame, singing sensation Jamia, “10 Things I Hate About You” star Meaghan Martin and “Let’s Talk About Love” singing contest winner Itzel, in adding their own vocal talents to the movement’s signature song, “Let’s Talk About Love.” Each artist has created a special rendition of the song to help spread the message of sharing and love and benefit Save the Children®.

Menudo recorded two versions of their Latin rock rendition of “Let’s Talk About Love,” one in English and one in Spanish. Jamia’s R&B version of “Let’s Talk About Love,” along with Cole’s adult contemporary rendition, Archuleta’s ballad style variation and Martin and Itzel’s pop takes, is now available at www.buildabear.com/lovehugspeace or any participating Build-A-Bear Workshop store. Kids of all ages can make a $1 donation to Save the Children and, as a thank you, receive a free download card of “Let’s Talk About Love” performed by the artist of their choice.
