  • While there were a lot of performances worth watching tonight, nothing moved us more than the acoustic rendition performance of "Patria y Vida," by Cuban artists Randy Malcom, Alexander Delgado of Gente de Zona, Yotuel Romero, Descemer Bueno and El Funky.
  • The original rap song "Patria y Vida," became a protest anthem song in Cuba last year, after thousands of Cubans took to the streets to protest the island's Communist regime.
  • It has since become an iconic slogan associated with resistance, activism, and a call for freedom.
  • In many ways it is the song that's defined the uprising that's currently happening in Cuba.
  • "Patria y vida," actually translates to "homeland and life" in English.
