benny blanco, Calvin Harris, & Miguel – I Found You / Nilda’s Story

Illegal immigration into America is the hot button issue of the day, with each take seemingly more polarizing than the last. And as each side ramps up the rhetoric, it’s easy to lose sight of the human stories at the center of the debate.

Joining the discussion, benny blanco and Calvin Harris enlist Miguel for a new spin on their house-pop collaboration “I Found You.” In cooperation with the “While They Wait” campaign, an effort that assists asylum seekers, the stirring acoustic take is coupled with a visually gripping account of a young migrant named Nilda seeking her own asylum here in the States.

The heartbreaking tale of rape and child separation on her perilous journey matched with Miguel’s rousing vocal interpretation is a stark reminder of the very real suffering our fellow peoples are enduring just ta make a better life for themselves and their families. No matter which side you may fall on, it’s important to take a step back and remember the human aspect.
