This CD features a blend of mellow, romantic, and soaringly beautiful songs. “Cuando el Cielo Llora” (When the Heavens Cry) was written by César Villalobos L. on September 11, 2001, as a heartfelt “prayer for peace.” It was played live for the first time on September 11, 2002, in a New York City concert benefit for the victims of this tragedy. Although the song typically brings tears to the eyes of listeners, it is ultimately hopeful. It inspired a phenomenal video which has reached 580,000 views on youtube! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JfvdYZEj6vM
“With the message that this helps us to reflect, tolerate and forgive, because the spirit of the victims will always live with us, Villalobos asks that this song serve as a prayer of meditation about our own lives.”
