Music For Change

| | Comments ()
For mere pocket change, you can help empower latino youth voters, and add 15 hot new songs to your iPod!


Nacional Records is proud to announce the upcoming release of a star-studded Voto Latino benefit album on April 15th exclusively via iTunes.

The track-listing features 15 songs for only $3.99 from an all-star lineup including Don Omar, Aterciopelados, Aventura, David Garza and Ozomatli. The album also includes a previously-unreleased track by Miami-based hip-hop hero Pitbull entitled “Across The Waters”. The emotionally charged song documents the plight of Cuban immigrants and has been the subject of a National Public Radio segment. "To me it's great to have a record like ‘Across the Waters’ involved with Voto Latino/iTunes because it represents everything we stand for, which is the struggle for freedom and opportunity,” says Pitbull.

“Music is the soundtrack to my life. The Voto Latino compilation is the soundtrack of a movement,” says Voto Latino co-founder Rosario Dawson, who recently starred in a widely circulated telenovela parody PSA with Wilmer Valderrama. “It encapsulates everything about the Latino drive to the polls so blast it on your way to change.”

Adds Valderrama: “Music has proven to be an influential platform for our generation. This is the time to use it.”
