Oscar 2008: "Raise It Up" no gana la estatuilla, pero...



Escucha este post Share

En la ceremonia de los Óscar del año 2008, en su edición número 80, la ganadora en la categoría a la Mejor Canción fue "Falling Slowly", interpretada por Glen Hansard y Marketa Irglova. No está mal esta canción, pero mi apuesta fue para "Raise It Up", interpretada por el Impact Repertory Theatre junto a la pequeña promesa de sólo 11 años, Jamia Simone Nash.


El maestro de ceremonias de la noche, Jon Stewart, da paso a la actriz Keri Russell que presenta esta canción nominada por la película El triunfo de un sueño (August Rush), y a continuación se interpreta en riguroso directo... ¡Disfrutadla!




No father figure in the house
And I'm wondering how I'm gonna work it out
Oh
My friends keep on telling me
How I don't need that man
But they don't really understand

There's far too many pressures in reality
With dealing with the pain the stress and poverty
And I gotta be myself because
There's nobody else for me (noo)

(hang in there with me)
Sometimes it takes a different kind of love to raise a child
(so don't give up)
So don't give up
(when pressures come down)
Sometimes it takes a different kind of dream to make you smile
(so raise it up)
So raise
(hang in there with me)
Sometimes we need another helping hand to show the way
(so don't give up)
So don't give up
(when pressures come down)
Sometimes it seems impossible and that's why we pray
(so raise it up)
We pray

Seems to be nothing left for me
Mommas gone, daddy didn't wanna be
And now I'm all by myself
Wondering where is love
Or should I just give up (ya know)

Life falls down on me
Cuts into my soul
But I know I got the strength to make it through it all
Cause I'm still standing tall
Breaking through these walls
I'm gonna give my all

Feeling like a motherless child
Pain cuts into my soul
It's bringing me down
Can't find my smile
On the face of a motherless child
I'm gonna break down these walls gonna give my all
Ya know
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeahhhhh

(hang in there with me)
Sometimes it takes a different kind of love to raise a child

So don't give up

(so raise it up)
So raise it up
(hang in there with me)
Sometimes we need another helping hand to show you the way
(so don't give up)
(when pressures come down)
Sometimes it seems impossible
That's why we pray
So raise it up
