Carlos Santana guitar auction for benefit children in Mexico
Hermes Music Foundation, in partnership with Dolores Huerta Foundation, launched in the U.S. and in Mexico the song "¡Claro Que Se Puede! (Yes We Can!)" in honor of Cesar Chavez, national icon in the U.S.; loyal to his roots, Cesar fought with dignity for the rights of Hispanic workers in the U.S.
This song is part of the album titled "Project of Love" / "Proyecto de Amor" and will be now also available to the public in Europe on the 20th of May 2011 under the German “The Music Agent” label. The world-wide digital selling is done by “finetunes", a company who is specialised in digital distribution.
The Benefit from this song will be split in equal parts between the Hermes Music Foundation and the Dolores Huerta Foundation.
"¡Claro Que Se Puede! (Yes We Can!)" was written by Alberto Kreimerman, president of the Hermes Music Foundation; Dolores Huerta, social activist and president of the Dolores Huerta Foundation; and David Arizmendi, who collaborated closely with Cesar Chavez.
The CD "Project of Love" / "Proyecto de Amor" was produced by Hermes Music Foundation. This project is a dream come true for Alberto Kreimerman who has dedicated a large part of his life to spreading love and harmony through his charitable projects, at the same time he is also a songwriter whose songs have been sung by many international artists, such as Reyli, Tatiana, Chabelo, Alberto Cortez, among several others.
The purpose of this song is to give hope and love to all immigrants and their families. Immigrants who for different reasons cross the border in hopes of finding a better life and better opportunities but in some cases they lose their lives trying. It's a song for those millions of people who form the labor force in the United States. As the song says, "rich men don't know this, but it was a farm worker who picked the fresh fruit that he'll eat today"
At the same time to the release also a special event starts. On auXion_de everyone can purchase by auction a guitar specially signed for this Project by Carlo Santana. The income proceeds also to the Charity project.
