Ricky Martin, Puerto Rico's all-time top-selling artist, added a new honor to go with his multiple Grammy awards on Thursday _ he was named king of the 50th annual National Puerto Rican Day Parade in New York. Parade organizers said the honor recognizes Martin's musical success and his efforts to fight the exploitation of children worldwide. Lugo said that while the parade has awarded other titles before such as grand marshal and padrino, or godfather, this year's parade, scheduled for June 10, is the first to have a king.
