The Rio Olympics are approaching the end fast, which means the end to the biggest sporting event of this summer. To help keep the spirit extra alive approaching the final medal games Sportsong of the Week #57 is the official theme song of the games: "Alma e Coração" by rapper Projota and pop singer Thiaguinho.
“This song sounds like Brazil. It’s about fighting hard and giving your best, with your heart and soul,” singer Thiaguinho says. The track was produced by Brazilian DJ duo Tropkillaz (André Laudz and Zé Gonzalez) with lyrics by MC Léo da Baixada, Victor Reis and Rodrigo Marques. Rapper Projota and pop singer Thiaguinho, artists from two very different musical genres, are the singers.
Thiaguinho comes from a sports-mad family and once dreamed about being a football player. The singer's parents are physical education teachers and he has a cousin who will compete in the long jump at Rio 2016: Mauro Vinícius Hilario Lourenço da Silva, also known as Duda. “Sport teaches us a lot of things," Thiaguinho says. "It gives people an equal opportunity to compete regardless of their financial situation. It teaches you that some days you win, some days you lose, just as in life." True that.
