Juan Marcelo and Juan Eduardo, are better known as 'Juan y Juan.' Back in the 70's they were Argentina's most famous singing duo. After more than 20 years apart, they're back together to promote a Papal education program, known as 'Scholas Occurrentes.'

The program they're referring to, is about education, solidarity and sports. Even international stars like Messi and Buffon have joined in. The purpose is to improve the education of those who need it most.

During their career, they recorded more than 20 singles and their albums were among the highest selling records. Practically any Argentinian knows their music, and that of course includes Pope Francis.
