The Rio Olympics are arriving soon, and it was recently announced that Brazilian superstars Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, and Anitta will perform at the Opening Ceremony. The 3-hour spectacle will be televised worldwide. A number of songs are being called the theme song for the games including “Alma e Coração” by samba star Thiaguinho with rapper Projota which is produced by electronic duo Tropkillaz. Interestingly, U.S. singer Katy Perry, known among other things as being the most followed person on Twitter, has released a song dedicated to the Olympics called “Rise”. Brazil has had to deal with a number of challenges lately, so we hope the Games will give the inhabitants a chance to put their best foot forward and have something to feel proud of and cheer about.
