It's not every day that you encounter music that goes beyond the message of love and heartbreak, to dig deeper into societal issues. Bachata artist and composer, Lynx, however, has broken the mold with his latest single “Somos Uno”. The song is focused on the theme of love and equality for people with disabilities, reminding the listener that people with special needs can reach new heights just like anyone else.
The topic is one that comes as second nature for Lynx, whose youngest brother is blind and autistic. The singer recalls moments from his childhood in which people would stare at his brother, and says that he has even encountered people who have family members with special needs and are ashamed of it. Lynx’s goals in releasing “Somos Uno” were simple: to show people they shouldn’t be ashamed of a disabled family member, to let those with special needs realize that they are no less than anyone else, and to give those who have not encountered someone with special needs a unique perspective on the matter.
With the single being out for almost a week now, Lynx says he is impressed with the amount of love and support he has been receiving from people in regards to the song. However, the most impactful reactions have been the emotional responses from parents and family members who have a loved one with special needs—in the short time that it has been out, the song has touched the hearts of many and there is still so much more to come.
“Somos Uno” is the last single to be released from Lynx’s upcoming debut album set to release sometime in November. The album is sure to make a splash with its unique approach and style, and more announcements will be made soon with further details. Until then, fans can enjoy Lynx’s other singles: “Máscara”, “Mi Debilidad”, “Como Antes”, and, of course “Somos Uno”.
