OUTMusic Humanitarian Songwriter of the Year

OUTMusic Awards - Silvina

In my final installment, I spotlight the award winning entry for Sonicbids OUTMusic Songwriter of the Year for the 7th Annual OUTmusic Awards. The Awards were given in New York City.

OUTMusic Awards - Silvina

The winner of the Sonicbids OUTMusic Awards Humanitarian Songwriter of the Year winner has quite the international feel. The beautiful Silvina was born in Argentina, and now lives in New Jersey. She topped the ballots for her gorgeous song, No Se Porque.



Now, I don't speak Spanish, and can barely remember the French I studied in school. But in her interviews, Silvina talked about the song as her offering of support to the homeless children and people in Latin America, and really, around the world. When I put the lyrics through Google Translate, this is what they come up with.

Pedro has seven years
but his feet are bare
No known fairy tales
only hurts his childhood

Where will the Kings
perhaps asleep as,
sometimes in the subway
sating their hunger on a walk, walk ...

Not because they do not know why
are you crying, are suffering,
silence is not because ...

Not because they do not know why,
hungry, cold
with so much sun, so wheat
Not because they do not know why
not because they do not know why ...

These are the dreams of his childhood
like paper boats
directs the wind direction
are nightmares at dawn

Where will the Magi
Maybe sleeping as
Sometimes in the subway
sating their hunger on a walk, walk, walk ...

Not because they do not know why
These lorando are suffering
not remain silent because

Not because they do not know why
hungry, cold
so much wheat sun
Not because they do not know why
Not because they do not know why

Even in a rough translation, the sentiment is beautiful indeed. You can find the single on iTunes here, and on Amazon.com here. For more about Silvina, check out her official FaceBook page here.
