CARRIE RODRIGUEZ @ My American friend


Schermata 2013-10-22 a 12.49.15

CARRIE RODRIGUEZ  is a talented and successful singer, songwriter and musician from Texas.

Thank you very much Carrie  for being our guest at “my American friend”!



October 12th was my birthday!  And it was also the anniversary of Columbus’s arrival in the Americas. 🙂
Let’s celebrate my birthday together by sharing the home-made video of my song “MISS LIBERTY”  (I made this video with an APP for iPad called Time Lapse).

This song is available on iTunes.

Thanks everyone! Marta

“Miss Liberty”  (words and music by Marta Innocenti,  performed in acoustic duo with Federock on the guitar,  recorded by Olly Riva).   Video (and drawings!) by Marta Innocenti.

** Lyrics and translation in Italian:

Here I am   Walking down the streets

Leaving my footprints   On the sidewalks  In New York

I’m part of   a multiethnic place     In the dawn    of century  2K

the land of opportunities   it must be   it must be

I crossed the ocean  and now I look inside Miss Liberty’s eyes

She holds up the torch  and she lights up the fear that I’m trying to hide

Got my dreams in my pocket,   Miss Liberty knows it

I take my chance     from Miss Liberty’s hands… here I am

Blinded by the lights    USA skyline     On the top floor    Of New York

I’m part of   the army of the brave     And I know  that I am here to stay

the land of opportunities   believe me    believe me!

here I am   here I am  October 12th    Welcome in New York


Eccomi qui    camminando lungo le strade

lasciando le mie impronte   sui marciapiedi    di New York

Faccio parte di un luogo multietnico  all’alba del secolo 2000

la terra delle opportunità,   deve esserlo    deve esserlo

Ho attraversato l’oceano  e ora guardo Miss Liberty dritto negli occhi

Lei tiene alta la torcia  e illumina quella paura  che io sto cercando di nascondere.

Ho i miei sogni in tasca e Miss Liberty lo sa bene

prendo la mia opportunità     dalle mani di Miss Liberty    eccomi qui

Accecata dalle luci   dello skyline americano

sull’attico   di New York

Faccio parte dell’esercito dei coraggiosi    E so che qui sono e qui rimarrò

la terra delle opportunità   credetemi    credetemi


eccomi qui  eccomi qui    il 12 di Ottobre

Benvenuti  a New York
