NEW LATINO POP ARTIST IMMI GRANT MAKES A BIG NOISE WITH HIS DEBUT SINGLE "IMMIGRANT (INMIGRANTE)"

Bookmark and Share
While President Obama talked about immigration reform in his State of the Union speech, new Latino pop artist IMMI GRANT has already addressed the issue in his debut single, "Immigrant (Inmigrante)." The track is a powerful Pop-Spanish/English song with a strong message to inspire people to follow their dreams. IMMI and songwriter/producer Gray Devio teamed up on the track, sending a positive message about immigrants who come to the US to start over. "We are learning to follow our dreams, and must never give up," says the young Argentinian-American. "With perseverance, anything is possible. This is what America is all about."

IMMI has already been profiled in El Diario, New York City's leading Spanish language newspaper (http://www.eldiariony.com/Immi:-representando-a-los-inmigrantes#.URqOE_L4KSp)* as well as on the site Voxxi (http://www.voxxi.com/immi-touches-immigrants-struggles-song/#ixzz2FWrcd9HV). The video for "Immigrant (Inmigrante)" has already amassed over 7,500 views (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HFR86jvzQkE) and the song is a semi-finalist in the 2013 International Songwriting Contest in the Latino category. Winners will be announced in April.

IMMI, his parents and five siblings emigrated to New York in 2001, when the economic crash in Argentina caused a financial crisis that took a heavy toll on the family. Because the American school system and language was so different from what he knew back home, IMMI was held back a year until he could catch up. By the time he graduated high school he was totally acclimated to his new life. "Things are very different here than in Buenos Aires," he notes. "Argentina is a very social society and people are more laid back. We all hang out outdoors and kids play in the street till all hours. When we moved to Far Rockaway (in Queens, NY), we were one of only a few immigrant families and I had to get used to a different culture. It was tough for me.

"At that time, there were vast differences between the Latino and American culture - very different food, the ways families spend their weekends, the whole social structure," IMMI says. "Today, Argentinians watch TV shows from the US and are familiar with everything that goes on here, including slang language, fashion styles and music."

The song "Immigrant (Inmigrante)" comes from IMMI's own experiences: "Since moving to the US, I understand what it means to be an immigrant. People from all over Latin America come here for a better life, to raise their families, give their kids a better future, live in a safer environment, make money and enjoy opportunities not available to them in their native lands. I've worked as a waiter, a cashier and a sales person along side people from Mexico, Nicaragua, Chile, Peru, Venezuela, Cuba, The Dominican Republic and Salvador. We all worked hard side by side, and shared stories about how difficult it is to get citizenship, which leaves so many in a state of limbo. But this is 'the land of opportunity,' and I want to inspire people to follow their dreams, encourage them to come here with their culture and inject it into America. After all, everyone here comes from a family of immigrants somewhere down the line."
