  • It tugs at the heart!

    By Birdie me
    As soon as I saw the video I purchased the song on iTunes. I listen to it everyday and repeat it over and over. It just breaks my heart what’s happened to my beautiful Island. To hear the names of the towns in song and with such conviction and sentiment it just blows me away. Thank you to all who collaborated in making this song a possibility thereby making Puerto Rico visible not only to the US but to the rest of the world. I believe this song moved many to get involved and to help in any way possible.
