Rio Olympics are scheduled to begin from 5 August.
The music video of the official theme song of 2016 Rio Olympics, “Alma e Coração” (Heart and Soul) was released by Som Livre on Sunday.
Track was produced by Brazilian DJ duo Tropkillaz, and the lyrics are written by MC Léo da Baixada, Victor Reis and Rodrigo Marques.
Speaking about the music video and the message it puts across for the upcoming games, Projota was quoted by the Rio Olympic 2016 website: “We both chose the song,
“There are plenty more things that unite us than things that set us apart.
“It’s a song about overcoming a situation. It’s about lifting your self-esteem, about running, fighting, making things happen.
Thiaguinho also added. “This song sounds like Brazil,” he says. “It’s about fighting hard and giving your best, with your heart and soul.”
Thiaguinho comes from a family that is totally into sports, and he even dreamed once to become a football player. The 33-year-old singer’s parents are physical education teachers.
“Sport teaches us a lot of things,” Thiaguinho added. “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.”
