If there was ever a need for the healing power of music, now is that time.

Alt.Latino put out a call for the songs that you are turning to and the response was moving. The wide variety of genres and styles reflect a group of listeners with a vast appreciation of music of all kinds.

This week, we take time to focus on the words that inspire this kind of devotion. Declarations of love become pleas for a return to normalcy and comfort. Existential meditations become appreciations for life itself.

As long as you need it and as long as you keep sending us your suggestions, we will keep sharing this kind of music. Please be safe out there, gente.
