This is absolutely AH-Mazing!
Hispanic Heritage Month started last Tuesday, so it couldn’t be a better time to release a wonderfully catchy and upbeat song that also promotes awareness about unity.
And that’s exactly what Emilio Estefan and his wife Gloria Estefan did when creating the song and video We’re All Mexican!
The music power-couple tapped several of their friends to participate — including Carlos Santana, Pitbull, Thalia, Wyclef Jean, Taboo from the Black Eyed Peas, Banda El Recodo, Carlos Vives, Angelica Maria, and of course Gloria as well, among others.
The video also features celebrities such as Kathy Griffin, Whoopi Goldberg, Amaury Nolasco, Eva Longoria, Carlos Ponce, Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias, and Kate Del Castillo. Oh yeah, and if you peek around 2:08, you’ll see a friendly, familiar face too!
Emilio said of creating the song:
“As immigrants, we have a love and appreciation for this country and for the freedom that it represents. We need to lift up our pride and show the world all the great things we’re doing. I wrote and produced this song to communicate a message of uniting all immigrants, not dividing them.”
We’re All Mexican serves as a metaphor to show that no matter who you are, anyone can be a victim of racism and bigotry much like the Mexicans who’ve been recently targeted by some media outlets as well as political leaders.
Ch-ch-check out the video (below) and let us know what you think of the new song and share your pride!
