The singer Luis Coronel was born in Tucson, Arizona, and has grown into a majorly successful musician at just the age of 26. But he never forgets his roots and the suffering of his family that left everything behind in search of the 'American Dream.'

In Dentro de mis ojos, his fifth studio album that continues to grow his image, he dedicates his lyrics to passion, romance and heartbreak. But in the title song, he wanted to make a special tribute to Latino immigrants.

"Looking for a better life, he crossed to the other side, that same border ended up separating us, I carry it on my chest to remember it," he sings in memory of the thousands of families that are fragmented on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border. He continues: “Within my eyes I carry the secrets that I will take to the grave. Not everyone pays for it, this life is very unfair, but that's how it happened to us."

This powerful song and his new album were produced in Queretaro, Mexico, with subtle and elegant arrangements by a band from Sinaloa. Despite being American, Coronel plays Mexican popular music as a sign of identity. He had the help of producer Luis Javier Días to write the songs, and collaborated with prestigious Mexican musicians like Rolando Lesmo, Omar Tarazón, Omar Angulo, Alex Monterrubio and Fernanda Díaz.

The tribute to immigrants, in which he explains the need to start a life from scratch after crossing the border, includes two versions: "band" and "GTR," where he modifies the musical base.

This cross-border song is also his own story. His father is from Canelas, Durango, and his mother from Caborca, Sonora.

“It is something that always touches me about migration. More than anything because I know I'm not the only one who goes through it, I know the feelings that other families have to go through, I know what it's like to be away from your family for a certain time, that a border separates them. I think it's a very important issue,” he said in an interview with the Associated Press.

His inspiration to write comes randomly, so he always carries a notebook with him.

“If I'm in the car, if I'm somewhere and an idea comes to me, I write it down. Then I come back, look at it and start writing a song about it,” he explained. 

The essence of “Dentro de mis ojos” was something that he likely carried long ago, in the depths of his consciousness.

His new album contains hits like "Órale," along with Luis Díaz and Alex Monterrubio, accompanied by a music video that was a hit on YouTube. It is a tortuous love story, a love that was deceived.

"The one who was cheated talks about karma, he doesn't want to go looking for her, he doesn't want to go after her,” he explained.

Other major songs are “Dios no se equivoca” and “Palabras,” where Coronel shows off his powerful voice.

After a brief American tour, where he performed in Texas, Washington, Oregon and California, Coronel plans to return to the land of his parents. On Aug. 21 in Morelia, Michoacán, is where Coronel will feel at home.
