Singer Ricky Martin has been named the national spokesperson for Orlando nonprofit the OnePulse Foundation.

In an announcement last week coinciding with the launch of their new OutLove Hate campaign — fundraising for the construction of a Pulse memorial and museum — OnePulse announced that Martin would be the new face of the organization on a national stage.

Martin will also film a series of PSAs for the organization.

“I’m excited to assist onePULSE Foundation with engagement and awareness-building opportunities as they build the National Pulse Memorial & Museum,” said Martin in a prepared statement. “The OUTLOVE HATE campaign is the perfect way to start our partnership."

The museum has a current planned opening of 2022.
