Colombian singer JUANES has been honoured in his native Carolina del Principe with a statue of his likeness.
The Latino hunk spent part of his childhood in the town and was recently named prince of the town - the first pop star to receive the accolade.
A statue of the 35-year-old was unveiled in Carolina del Principe's main square on Friday (12Oct07) - in front of the house where his late father once lived.
The singer met with dignitaries and Mayor Gabriel Angel Avendano, as part of the town's 220th anniversary celebrations.
Take a look back at October's inaugural event.
The film is expected to continue without Mendes' involvement.
