Nothing to lose and a lot to win. Thats the name of Spanish singer Manu Escudero's first album. Its the outcome of years of education and also, the beginning of a promising career.
In a world that speaks only about the economic crisis, this Spanish musician sings about the importance of never giving up and also about remembering the good things in life.
But not only that, he also tries to be the voice of people who have suffered the crisis directly. In his song 'Where is Humanity?' he sings about a woman who was forced to leave her house because she was unable to pay the mortgage.
Manu Escudero also knows what it's like to need a little help. His album was released as a solidarity project: almost 85 people donated a total of 3,000 dollars through a funding website.
"I also take this opportunity to thank all of you who have been helping me ever since the beginning of my career. My family, my friends, the people who came to my concerts or bought my main track back in September, and of course, every other musician that has collaborated with me in every concert. Without all of them, this would've been even harder to achieve.”
Manu presented his album in the Spanish city of Vigo on October 4th. He says this is just the beginning: an entire country now awaits his words of courage and hope.
