Secular singer from Hungary. English lyrics.

I could be here for hours finding and posting music from other countries i have haha.
Who said you can't? It is just interesting how much diversity there is in things to hear, and i did like to listen to chinese and other music as a child and young person, although not understanding a thing-(.

Thanks, guys for the posts. I havent been able to listen to these yet, but hope to when there is more time. On my mind was Kumbaya, but on looking for the words to post, found this: (Well, it's still a foreign song to me=)

[FONT=&quot]"Kumbaya, my Lord" was first recorded by an out-of-work English professor, Robert Winslow Gordon, in 1927. Gordon went on a search for black spirituals and recorded a song "Come by Here, My Lord", sung by H. Wylie. The song was sung in Gullah on the islands of South Carolina between Charleston and Beaufort. Gullah is the creole language featured in the Uncle Remus series of Joel Chandler Harris and the Walt Disney production of Song of the South. "Come by here, my Lord" in Gullah is "Kum by (h)yuh, my lawd".

[/FONT]

[FONT=&quot]American missionaries took the song to Angola after its publication in the 1930s, where its origins were forgotten. In the late 1950s the song was rediscovered in Angola and returned to North American where it swept the campfire circuit as a beautiful and mysterious religious lyric. That is why the song is associated with Angola in many current printed versions.

What does 'kumbaya' in the song "Kumbaya, my Lord" mean?[/FONT]

Well, 'foreign' on an international fellowship is a funny concept. ;)

English lyrics, but a Christian band from India, incorporating their culture into the video.
Yes, thought so. But as original american and british (mostly, tho australian and kiwi) english songs are 'foreign' to me/us here, we can post a few which you cannot!

I also love Enrique. I like his spanish songs particularly Nunca de olvidare (I will never forget you) and cuando me enamoro. His current songs that his recording company makes him sing are not really that good. It is just for money so he can remain in the mainstream and to keep up with the trend of the millenials.

AN ITLAIAN CHILDREN'S CHRISTMAS SONG.
"Letterina a Bambino Gesu'" ---- " A Letter to Baby Jesus"



Dear Jesus
I'm feeling so happy this evening with the houses dressed in White
In this divine evening I'd like You to read my letter so I could ask you some things...

There are thing in this world
Which I don't understand
Why do people kill and are evil
and why does a child die?

Please make us better
And let there be joy
I ask you for this gift, Baby Jesus

I ask of you, bread for those that hunger
Peace for those yet to be born
Give us faith
Give us the star that will lead to You
Light my path
Protect mommy and daddy

(repeat)
