The craziest thing about changing from Up with People to Viva La Gente when we come to
Last week we toured the grounds of Los Pinos, which is the presidential complex with seven houses, equivalent to visiting the white house. During our tour we met with the First Lady, Margarita Zavala, and we performed two songs for her, acoustic style. She sang along!
Apparently the Spanish version of Up with People is a song that every child learns in school or camp… its just in their repertoire, like “Old McDonald”. So most every taxi driver I’ve had or person I meet, when I mention Viva La Gente, begins to sing.
