Congratulations Alejandro Sanz!
I want to congratulate my good friend Alejandro Sanz for winning “Best Pop” album category at the 2010 Latin Grammy Awards. This was a well deserved award and Loren and I were proud to be part of one of the songs in the album “Looking for Paradise.”
Alejandro is one of the most talented and passionate singers/songwriters of our time not to mention one of the most down to earth individuals I know. One of the songs from the album “Paradise Express” Looking for Paradise, occurred on our yacht, Utopia III. One night, two summers ago, Alejandro Sanz, one of the greatest musicians and poets of our tiume and Alicia Keys, who is the greatest vocalist of today, and songwriter, beat-maker, and incredible music producer, Swizz Beatz all serendipitously came together. They started singing a song about utopia and then came this idea about paradise. After that evening, Alejandro spent time working on songs for his upcoming album and then asked Loren for her help in getting Alicia to collaborate for a recording.
The message to the song ‘Looking for Paradise’ is universal. The song embodies the message of Market America. Who isn’t looking for paradise? People spend their lives running around, always searching for a way to get by, a way to make “it” happen. We are all searching for something that is good and pure, something that makes sense in our personal journey. Market America is an unstoppable engine that provides an opportunity for people to create their own paradise. Market America is creating a global utopia – the more you help other people succeed, the more successful you are – it’s mutual success. I don’t know of another business model in the world that operates like that.
