04:13
This is a song that came about
この曲を作ったのはですね…
04:14
because I think it's difficult to be in the world
何が起こっているのか訳も分からずに
04:18
and not be aware of what's going on,
世界にいるのはキツイと思ったからです
04:22
and the wars and so forth.
戦争やその他もろもろのことです
04:24
This song kind of came out of all of that.
この曲は そういったことをテーマにしています
04:29
And I wrote a lot of happy songs on my first record,
デビューアルバムでは 明るい曲を沢山書きました
04:33
which I still stand by,
今でもそうですが
04:40
but this has got something else in it.
この曲は少し違います
04:42
It's called "Peace on Earth."
「ピース オン アース」です

About the Speaker:

Raul Midon - Guitarist
Guitarist and singer Raul Midon blends flamenco, jazz and R&B to create a category-defying sound. His life story is as inspiring as his musical vision.

Why you should listen

Raul Midon is into beating the odds, shattering stereotypes, and making category-defying music. "I was told as a child, 'You're blind; you can't do this,'" Midon told an interviewer in 2005. "I was told when I moved to New York, 'You can't do that, you're not going to make it.'" At 40, however, Midon has clearly made it.

After singing backup vocals for stars like Shakira, Julio Iglesias, Jennifer Lopez and Christina Aguilera, Midon released his major-label solo debut, State of Mind, with help from guest artist Jason Mraz. Midon's innovative songwriting incorporates his lyrics, guitar handiwork (jazz, classical, flamenco, R&B) and "vocal trumpet" improvisation. Though he draws comparisons to Stevie Wonder, Donny Hathaway and Richie Havens, Midon is the rare original in an industry of few.

His latest album is A World Within a World.
