The singer-songwriter, winner of seven Latin Grammy Awards, announced his new single and promotional video ‘Besos en la Frente‘, a song that is part of his most recent album, “Viajante“, and is the official theme of the ‘Emma Brilla ‘ to help children in Colombia with congenital heart disease.
The campaign, led by the singer-songwriter and the Fundación Cardioinfantil in Colombia, is launched today from the Teatro Colón in Bogotá with a symphonic show by Fonseca “for the benefit of the cause,” a statement said.
The idea is to create and promote the Emma Lemaitre fund, to which people can make donations to treat and diagnose these diseases in time in less favored populations ‘Besos en la frente‘ is dedicated to her niece Emma, ”a little angel in heaven whose “light will always shine. The theme is born from the depths of the soul due to a family situation. It is a song that shows how many times music comes to heal and bring light to moments of darkness,” said Fonseca in the presentation of the video.
“I am sure that it will reach the hearts of many people who will have in their memory and in their hearts that person who is no longer there… Remembering is living and also being grateful. That is ‘Besos en la frente‘”, detailed the composer.
He gives context: This is the story of the album that almost drove Fonseca crazy.
One in every 100 people born in Colombia suffers from structural congenital heart disease, being the second cause of death in children under one year of age, according to data from the Fundación Cardioinfantil. These diseases are often not detected early and affect the heart of children and adolescents.
At the end of last April, Fonseca published “Viajante“, his ninth album, which was accompanied by the single and music video “Pasa,” in which the Mexican pop group Matisse collaborates, to celebrate his 20 years in music.
“I am and will be a traveler forever and my songs are my way of describing this path,” Fonseca said then about this album, conceived during the pause in the pandemic and ending with the return to the new normality.
For 25 years, through the ‘Give a Life’ program, the Fundación Cardioinfantil has traveled to different departments of the country where it has carried out cardiological diagnosis brigades that allow these cardiovascular diseases to be identified in time.
