Dame Tus Ojos (2015) Marcela Gandara

Dame Tus Ojos (Give Me Your Eyes) is the second song from Mexican Christian singer-songwriter Marcela Gandara to appear in this Music Library Project. Also alphabetically it launches all songs starting with ‘D’. What entails the ‘Music Library Project’?
This song is not a bad way to get things started because if I had to choose a Latin artist that I knew whose music would lift me up then Marcela would be my principal choice.
Interestingly during lockdown periods here in Bogotá, on Sunday in particular, singers have gone to the streets in my neighbourhood and sung her music. They have a good taste in music and lifted my spirits – that’s for sure.

Since I heard Marcela’s music emanating from a perfume shop those few years ago I have been an avid admirer. If she sung at a church near here I wouldn’t hesitate to throw my money in the coffers and listen to her sing. She is some kind of natural talent.

Give me your eyes,
I want to see

Give me your words,
I want to talk
Give me your opinion

Give me your feet, I want to go
Give me your wishes to feel
Give me your opinion
Give me what I need

To be like you
(loose English translation)

At 18 years she devoted to serve herself as a singer of Christian music. According to Spanish wikpedia Marcela is currently studying Bachelor of Marketing and International Business at the University of Texas at El Paso. Marcela stated: “The purpose of the music she performed is to allow the Holy Spirit to use each of the songs and work in the hearts of the people according to their needs. My desire is to be able to transmit hunger for God, for his word and his presence.

Marecla it is said worked with Hillsong as I did in Australia when I was at the Mornington Baptist Church. Good Christian music which Marcela is most definitely aligned is some of the best music I have ever heard. I feel indebted to have stumbled across her music. May they continue to entertain us on Sundays.
