    I do not know why people are bothered by the fact that people praising camila here! I know there are other singers and also the cause that the song was made. What’s the problem with people talking about Camila, people like her, so let them be proud of her. Deserved all the comments about it! And congratulations on the initiative to have created the music !!

  6. Julia Paramo says:

    Every artist on this killed it but only knowing and loving Gina Rodriguez from her acting on Jane The Virgin watching and hearing her sing in Spanish me llena de orgullo siendo Latína ??
