Friday Canción: Hoy by Gloria Estefan

Happy Friday!

Are you ready for some sweet Spanish music?  I’ve got a Friday Song for you…

La canción de viernes: Hoy by Gloria Estefan

 

Gloria Estefan released this song in 2003 in both Spanish and English. The English version is called Wrapped.

 

 

The video for this song was filmed in Peru in the legendary city of Machu Picchu; and the lyrics for the song were written by Gian Marco Zignago, a Peruvian songwriter and singer.

Here are the lyrics in Spanish for Hoy, the (almost) literal translation and the English lyrics for Wrapped. I’ve included lyrics up to the end of the first chorus.

Hope you enjoy the music.  Have a wonderful weekend!

      It is. Don’t see why there are so many changes in the “Wrapped” version… but I’m not a songwriter 😉

        It is interesting to see how the two versions are alike and different all at the same time.

        Definitely. I loved the movie “Music of the Heart,” too.
