Tatiana Carrion – Maylia.
This is a song that tells the story of a love blossoming, leading to pregnancy and birth. There is a certain sadness about this song, since in the end, the relationship did not work. Her daughter was born, and regardless of the emotions described throughout the song… the two were not together by the time she was born. I am submitting this song for the artist because it moved me. I hope you feel the same. She is one of the most genuine people I know and I want her to be heard.
