About the song writers and composers   

Ra煤l Gomez was born in 1993, in Coria del R铆o, near the town of Seville, Spain. In 2013, at the age of 19, Ra煤l won the second edition of the music competition The Number One. In those days, he could not imagine one of his songs would be selected four years later to represent Spain at the Eurovision Contest. 

From a very young age, Ra煤l liked to play the violin. He completed his musical education at the Conservatory of Seville, taking a professional degree in violin and training in piano and composition. He believes his diversity as a performer comes from the fact he learnt to sing with the violin scales. 

During his participation in The Number One, Ra煤l performed classic tunes such as Nina Simone鈥檚 Feeling Good and Elton John鈥檚 Your Song as well as Spanish hits such as Hombres G鈥檚 band Temblando. The videos on the official YouTube channel of the show were most viewed, exceeding three million views.    

Ra煤l released his first album in 2014 and launched it live as the opening act at concerts of X Factor UK winner James Arthur in Madrid and Barcelona. He moved to London in 2016 where he has continued to develop his style of composing. One of his tracks, T煤 qu茅 me das, was included on Rosa L贸pez鈥檚 latest album Kair贸s. Rosa represented Spain in the Eurovision Song Contest in 2002. Ra煤l is currently writing new compositions for other artists and is working on his own new album as a performer, with songs in both English and Spanish.

Sylvia Santoro is co-author of Tu Canci贸n, alongside her nephew Ra煤l G贸mez. Born in Barcelona in 1977, Sylvia currently lives near Seville, Spain. Married and mother of two, her daughters are the love of her life. She is a singer/songwriter but also teaches flamenco at colleges and universities.    

At the age of seven, Sylvia鈥檚 parents moved to the island of Mallorca where she discovered music is the language of the soul. At 13, she got her first guitar, learning to play it without formal lessons, and started to write her own songs. 

During her teen years Sylvia studied singing, musical education and classical Spanish dance and flamenco. She has worked as an artistic adviser and attended many academic sessions as a songwriter, fusing painting and music with the painter and poet Antonio Soto at the Universities of Tenerife, Barcelona, Seville and others in Spain and Europe.    

At 25, Sylvia recorded her first music demo, Si las piedras hablaran, and moved to Barcelona the year after to release her first album Sentido. At 38, after a five-year hiatus, she has returned to songwriting.

Sylvia likes simplicity and loves her family above all. She uses art as a spiritual language and truly believes the best things in life are free.

Lyrics of Tu Canci贸n

Nunca llegu茅 a imaginar
Que viajar a la luna ser铆a real
Lo pones todo al rev茅s
Cuando besas mi frente y descubro por qu茅
Ya no puedo inventarlo

Siento que bailo por primera vez
Eres el arte que endulza la piel
De mi mente viajera que sigue tus pies
Siento que bailo por primera vez junto a ti

S茅 que en ti puedo encontrar
Esa voz que me abriga si el tiempo va mal
Todo es perfecto si est谩s
A mi lado creando una nueva ciudad

Siento que bailo por primera vez
Eres el arte que endulza la piel
De mi mente viajera que sigue tus pies
Siento que bailo por primera vez

Ya no puedo inventarlo
Solo quiero
Tu canci贸n

Siento que bailo por primera vez
Eres el arte que endulza la piel
De mi mente viajera que sigue tus pies
Siento que bailo por primera vez junto a ti
I never got to imagine
that traveling to the moon would be for real
You put everything upside down
when you kiss my forehead and I find out why
I can no longer.. make it up

I feel like dancing for the first time
You are the art that sweetens my skin
From my traveling mind that follows your feet
I feel like dancing for the first time by your side

I know in you I can find
that voice that shelters me when times are bad
Everything's perfect if you are
by my side creating a new city

I feel like dancing for the first time
You are the art that sweetens the skin
From my traveling mind that follows your feet
I feel like dancing for the first time, by your side

I can no longer.. make it up
I only want..
your song oh oh oh

I feel like dancing for the first time
You are the art that sweetens the skin
From my traveling mind that follows your feet
I feel like dancing for the first time by your side
