The Latin Fury! Song Spotlight Series takes a closer look at the songs that are part of the show.
This song spotlight is on “La Vida Es Un Carnaval”!
“La Vida Es Un Carnaval” is one of the most recognizable songs from the iconic Cuban songstress Celia Cruz, who was one of the most iconic influencers of Latin music in North America.
The song – which means “Life is a Carnival” – radiates good vibes and through its uplifting style and delivery, it reminds us to embrace all that the happiness and beauty that come from life’s adventures – just as Cruz intended.
The Cruz version and some of its famous covers – from Victor Manuelle, Nicky Jam, and Mikey Perfecto to name a few – have been well-received internationally with the song charting multiple times on the US Latin, US Latin Pop, US Latin Digital, US Tropical, and US Tropical Digital Billboard charts.
In 2020, the song continues to be a mainstay with Giselle Bellas having recorded a live version during COVID-19 quarantine. For Latin Fury!, the energy and happiness of the song make it an essential ingredient in giving our audience the show of their lives.
