The Disney Pixar film “Coco” pays homage to Dia De Los Muertos and the tradition of honoring those who have passed on. The film centers around a young boy named Miguel who dreams of becoming a musician. In the film, he encounters his musical idol, Ernesto de la Cruz, the most famous Mexican musician of all time.

With music playing a huge role in the movie, Kristen Anderson-Lopez and her husband Robert Lopez, wrote an epic theme song for “Coco” titled “Remember Me.” The pair also wrote “Let It Go,” the Academy Award-winning song from the movie “Frozen.” Although the main version of the song is sung by Ernesto de la Cruz (Benjamin Bratt), there’s a version of the song featuring Miguel and Natalia Lafourcade.

The official music video was recently released and shows the two singers reminiscing about their deceased loved ones at their Dia De Los Muertos altars. They sing and dance with scenes from the movie intercut throughout the video. Miguel sings in English while Lafourcade sings in Spanish and it comes together beautifully.

Miguel shared a behind the scenes photo of the music video on Instagram.

Miguel expressed his gratitude at being included on the soundtrack calling the song “part of another timeless addition to the Disney/Pixar legacy.”

Lafourcade also posted to Instagram to thank those involved in the music video.

She called Miguel a great human being and artist. She also took a moment to reflect on how incredible it is to find new heartwarming adventures like this one.

Disney/ Pixar has also released a Spanish version of the song by Carlos Rivera.

A Group Of Police Officers Performed At A Mariachi Festival And Some Think It Was Just Publicity

The Los Angeles Police Department recently shared a video of several LAPD officers and Los Angeles Sheriff deputies performing with a mariachi and folks are eating it up.

The singing police officer is Chris Reza, a member of the LAPD police force. Reza’s Twitter banner proudly states that his duty is “to protect and to serve! and occasionally sing!” Reza was one of many police officers and sheriff’s deputies who attended the 27th annual Mariachi Festival at Mariachi Plaza in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Boyle Heights. Mariachi Plaza, a place where people can hire mariachis and other musicians for parties, is a popular community gathering spot. Reza took to Instagram to share his excitement about being part of the festivities with his fellow law enforcement peers.

“Great event and a great time,” Reza wrote on Instagram. “Many thanks to my mariachi/law enforcement brothers and sisters for having the heart and vision to see this through mariachi Los Servidores.”

Several people replied to the tweet to express how impressed they were.

Music does have a way of getting people moving regardless of who sings it, tbh

Law enforcement was holding this performance down from the guitars in the background to the lead singer.

But mainly people were just happy to see their neighborhood represented.

And they might have a career in music if this whole law enforcement thing doesn’t work out.
