Me estás matando, vida mía August 11, 2010The video below is done by a group called Funky. The song starts out as many Latin love songs to. The guy is begging the girl not to leave him. He says that she is killing him by her rejection; She is tearing him apart, piece by piece. He promises her that he will be different from other men. He promises to bring her joy if she will just give him a chance to prove himself.
As the song goes on, one begins to see that the person singing is really an unborn son, talking to his mother from inside her womb, begging her to let him live.
You have to watch to the end of the video to see what choice she made.
I like Funky and its Reggaeton. Of course, Reggaeton in general is pretty crude, they tell me.
Last month we had Lucho, a missionary colleague of ours from Colombia, staying with us. He had grown up in a very legalistic church, but had found the freedom of God’s grace in Christ. When I asked him if he’d like to see our Funky video, at first he rolled his eyes, telling me that he didn’t like that kind of music.
…until he heard Funky…I had to give him the video so the young people in the church he pastors in Colombia could see it!
