The song “Hoy”, by the Argentine singer-songwriter Diego Torres, was chosen by the Hispanic network Telemundo for the broadcasts of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games that begin on Friday.
The five-time Latin Grammy Award nominee said that the song is very appropriate for the sporting event because it talks about not giving up and that nothing is impossible.
The idea is “to connect viewers with the excitement around the Olympics, and with the journey and inspiration of the many athletes who are looking to achieve their dreams,” the chain detailed in a statement.
The song was composed by Torres, Yadam González Cárdenas and Gerardo Cea and has the collaboration of the Brazilian singer Ivette Sangalo.
The song is part of Torres’ most recent studio production, “Atlántico a pie,” which he released last May.
Torres’ career, which spans nine studio albums, two compilations and two live, features hits such as “Color esperanza”, “Trying to be better”, “Penelope”, “Alba”, “Sueños”, “You” , “Andando”, “Guapa” and “Un little”.
“We believe the song sends a hopeful message that aligns perfectly with the incredible performances we will see from the athletes and the stories we will tell during the Games,” said Eli Velázquez, Executive Vice President of Content for Telemundo Deportes.
“We want our coverage to move and inspire the audience,” he said about this collaboration with the singer-songwriter and Sony Music Entertainment.
“Hoy” will be used in all of Telemundo Deportes’ Olympic coverage starting this Wednesday with the preliminary special of the El Camino Dorado Olympics.
