“My skywriting contribution is the words, "Vivir Mi Vida la la la". "Vivir Mi Vida" is the title of a hit song by Puerto Rican musician Marc Anthony.
Its a song that people may know either from a wedding, quinceanera or birthday party.
All places of group celebration where strangers can become friends and friends can become family.
We hope the message taken from the song will spark memories of joy, bring those that are afar, near, and closer to their hearts. Those connections and emotion will inspire folks to SING! Carrying their voices of love and hope beyond the nightmare of detention.
For Anthony the song is meant as a celebration of latin communities around the world. No matter how you may feel about the pop flavor of "Vivir Mi Vida", it makes you tap your feet, sing along, and dance.”
