JOHNNY BLISS

I’m addicted to The Voice.

I’ve been watching for many seasons.

As I traversed through the net today, I found this video.

It blissfully hit the strings of my heart.

PRECIOSA is an iconic Puerto Rican song. 

Johnny Bliss performed this song masterfully.

We don’t know who he picks as his coach.

I sure hope it’s Alicia Keys. 

I know who I will be rooting for during this season if Johnny makes it through the end.

Here’s a bit about Johnny

On Facebook, Johnny Bliss describes himself as “an up and coming salsa/rock/pop and R&B artist.”

Born and raised in New York City, he said his influences include Bruno Mars and Marc Anthony.

He’s been through this type of competition before. In 2016, he participated in the Univision singing show “Va Por Tí.” You can watch his performances on his YouTube channel.

Most of his YouTube videos feature Johnny singing in Spanish, but he does include an English cover of Rihanna’s “Take a Bow.”

He also performs as a comedian and motivational speaker, according to his Facebook page.

If you understand Spanish, you can head here to check out Johnny’s intro package for Va Por Tí.

“NO IMPORTA EL TIRANO TE TRATE CON NEGRA MALDAD”

Preciosa” (“Precious”)

is a 1937 patriotic composition by Puerto Rican composer Rafael Hernández Marín.

RedL

~HISTORY~

In 1937, Hernández Marin wrote “Preciosa“, while in Mexico. Years later, in 1947, he returned to Puerto Rico and became orchestra director at the government-owned WIPR Radio.

His music became an important part of Puerto Rican culture.

Hernandez formed Cuarteto Victoria (Victoria Quartet) with Pedro Ortiz Dávila, Rafael Rodríguez, and Franciso López Cruz with whom he recorded the song. A Puerto Rican group led by Manuel A. Jiménez (“Canario”) recorded Hernández’s Preciosa, which, together with Lamento Borincano became unofficial national anthems of Puerto Rico.

~THEME~

Preciosa expressed feelings of love and nostalgia for Puerto Rico but also the discontent regarding the poor economy prevalent on the island at the time. The work was an idealistic view of the people of Puerto Rico in terms of traits of Hispanic and Indian traditions but missing the African dimension.

The song made reference to a tyrant who ruled Puerto Rico and it became a favorite song of autonomist patriotism.

As noted, this song was written in 1937. During this time, the Island was going through tough political times. There was the sense that Puerto Rico was ruled by a “distant tyrant” who made its present markedly felt in daily island life.

The lyrics speak about the island’s enchantments, its culture, its people, its pride, its stolen identity.

It’s ironic to note that this song applies perfectly to the current economical and political situation that Puerto Rico is experiencing.

The “tyrant” long spoken about is still there. As a matter of fact, it never left.

History repeats itself.

As I listened to this song and watched the awesome video today, I experienced the “chill factor”.

I had goosebumps as I felt my pride swell and my heart beat faster.

I am Puerto Rican and I will always be, no matter where I live.

THIS MEANS “PUERTO RICO FROM THE SKY”

Puerto Rico, officially known as the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico (Estado Libre Asociado de Puerto Rico), is an unincorporated territory of the United States, located in the northeastern Caribbean, east of the Dominican Republic and west of both the U.S. Virgin Islands and the British Virgin Islands.

Puerto Rico is only 100 miles long by 35 miles wide, making it the smallest island of the Greater Antilles. Puerto Rico (Spanish for “rich port”) consists of an archipelago that includes the main island of Puerto Rico and several islands: Vieques, Culebra, Mona and numerous islets.

Puerto Rico is my country. I was born and raised there. It’s not a perfect place. In reality it has the many problems that any country in the world. There’s economic conflict, politics is the national sport, there’s corruption in many agencies, there’s inequality between classes.

I think of it as a mini USA.

Still when you look at it from the beautiful Nature is possesses, it is a beautiful place.

The song played is called “Preciosa” (Precious). It’s a signature song for Puerto Rico which “talks” about the beauty of the Island and the pride that any Puerto Rican has for their homeland. It’s a “battle hymn” expressing the beauty, the pride and the certainty that, no matter what, Puerto Rico will always stand on its own, no matter the presence of the tyrant.

It’s very well performed by Marc Anthony .. a well known singer of Puerto Rican descent.
