Rocker Andrew W.K. has been named an American Cultural Ambassador to the Middle East.
The Party Hard hitmaker will travel to Bahrain, an island country just south of Iran, next month (Dec12) to promote peace and prosperity in the region as part of his new appointment by members of the U.S. Department of State.
The 33-year-old will visit local elementary schools and music venues as part of his tour and the singer can't wait to get started.
In a post on his official website, he writes, "This is a tremendous invitation. I'm very thankful to the Department of State for giving me the opportunity to visit a place I've never been before. I feel very privileged and humbled by the chance to represent the United States of America and show the good people of Bahrain the power of positive partying. I can hardly wait for this adventure!"
