#DontBeSilent - 2016
This is the second version of my song called "Don't Be Silent" (2012). I composed this song to support the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women (November 25th). Since then, my daughter born and I decided to record it again with a brand new arrangement an including new names. For those who do not know, around 2011 the cover of my first album "Lu Horta - 2003", which has a photo of my face clicked by the photographer Inaê Coutinho, was used as a symbol of the campaign for non-violence against women without my Authorization and also not from Inaê. Since then, and through this song, I decided to officially "express" my support for this campaign.
In this new version, I had the privilege of having wonderful singers and musicians.
