I have two productions. The first is available in Papiamento “Move Tur” and in English it means “Move Every Mountain”, which is well entitled to instill faith and hope in the lives of the people who listen to it. The second production is titled “Just A Hug” because that’s how the title track of the album is called and it means a lot to me.
We started writing this song in December 2011, a month when my older sister died from a car accident. We finished writing the lyrics for this CD on 28 December and the accident happened the next day, December 29. It was then that I realized the power that song had … God was preparing us for a big hug … that’s where that song became even more important for us.
In the months after the accident many people visited us to try to comfort us, but there was a time I would not listen to anyone else … all I wanted and needed was a hug … a hug from God himself … that would be enough. There, in the midst of the situation – and through this song – we received – personally and as a family – the embrace of God .. and still continue to experience that hug every day.
That’s why I chose this song for the title of this second production, because it came from a real experience of my life. Now more than ever I can say from experience that the embrace of God is sufficient to quench the deepest pain and change the saddest situation.
