Filipino singer Rico Blanco will appear in a early childhood education campaign in his country, called "Sesame Street Kid Ako" ("Sesame Street Kid").
A solo performer, he has had more local and regional number one hits in the Phillipines than any other musician since 1994.
Blanco was quoted saying:
Two "classic Sesame Street songs" will be turned into rock songs by Blanco, for performance in a mall tour.
