Latino artists are mad and they want Americans to know it.
Music power couple Emilio and Gloria Estefan are among the Latino entertainers fighting the anti-Latino wave that Donald Trump sparked when he declared that Mexican immigrants arriving in the United States are rapists and criminals.
Hence the name of Gloria Estefan’s upcoming track “We’re all Mexican.” The Grammy-winning Cuban-American singer and her producer husband have enlisted the help of big names such as Carlos Santana, Thalia, and Wyclef Jean to record the song, according to Billboard magazine .
After announcing the track, which is scheduled to be released this month, Gloria Estefan clarified on Twitter that the song is not an attack against anyone, presumably, Trump.
FYI,Emilio & all involved with"We're All Mexican" did NOT record this as an Anti-ANYONE song but in tribute 2 Immigrant Contributions in USA— Gloria Estefan (@GloriaEstefan) September 10, 2015
In a video released on his website, producer Emilio Estefan said he wrote the song for Hispanic Heritage month and to show that “this country is about love, is about achievement, and about Americans’ dreams.”
Other Latino entertainers have been more direct in their response to Donald Trump’s message.
