Thanks to Reuters for this:

Former Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page has been made an honorary citizen of Rio de Janeiro for his work with underprivileged kids in the Brazilian city.

Page was presented with the honor at a ceremony on Tuesday at Casa Jimmy (Jimmy‘s House), a facility set up in 1997 in the Rio district of Santa Teresa with funds from the veteran rocker.
“Jimmy is not a Carioca (Rio resident) or a Brazilian but he has solidarity with Brazil,” state legislator Paulo Melo said at the event, where Page was hugged and kissed by children currently in the project.
