I was riding on the subway in Spain the other day, (which can be a racist place) when a black busker came on with a guitar and starting singing an amazing song about churches having no paintings of black angels. I can honestly say I’d never heard the song before and was captivated, so captivated that I missed my stop just to listen to him, he sang the song for about two minutes eyes closed and had the whole mainly white carriage shifting uncomfortably in their seats, which drew my attention even more. I was proud that he had the guts to sing it so freely with so much passion, when he had finished the song, he opened his eyes and looked around and saw me smiling at him. I personally walked over and gave him some money which prompted more people to give him money (maybe white guilt) and said the song and the way he sang it was amazing, he thanked me and we got chatting, it turned out he was from Cuba, and the song was very famous there, after chatting for a bit longer he gave me the title of the song which is called ‘Angelitos Negros’ (Black Angels) I thought it was his song but when I got home to check I saw it was originally a song by a singer called Antonio Machin, which was then covered by none other than Eartha Kitt in English and in Spanish, which she sings perfectly. See what you think.
