Superstar  pianist Lang Lang has been named  by Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon as a United Nations Messenger of Peace.

Ban calls the 31-year-old Chinese pianist “one of the most exciting and accomplished musicians of our time.”

Lang Lang  has been a goodwill ambassador for the UN children’s agency, UNICEF, for the last 10 years and  Ban says the musician will focus on getting the 57 million school-age children – who aren’t being educated –  into classrooms.

Lang Lang  says this new role is more important than his music: because it can help improve the lives of children around the world.
