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. 

JUAN EDUARDO

"We started off with two songs based on the preaching of Pope Francis. They are the first two songs in our album.” 

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. 

JUAN MARCELO
Juan & Juan
"The Pope is an incredible person. He is very humble. He's an every day person, who knows about everything. Our songs are often played during soccer matches out in stadiums, so he definitely knows our music.”
