Ruth Lorenzo

The day Ruth was born she screamed so loudly during the birth that the doctors said she would be a singer. They were right. At the early age of two Ruth was singing along to the songs from Annie and at the age of six, after listening to Spanish opera singer Montserrat Caballé, she started singing opera.

At twelve years old Ruth and her family left Murcia (south east Spain) and moved to the United States. There, Ruth took every music, theatre, dance and choir lesson going on. She was put into competitions and played the lead roles in The Phantom of the Opera and My Fair Lady, developing her singing and stage skills.


But it was when Ruth was sixteen years old when, after moving back to Spain, she took singing lessons and decided to pursue her dream of becoming a singer. For three years, she toured around Spain with her rock band and discovered that she wanted to make a living out of music, but things were not easy for her. 


In 2008 she decided to try out auditioning for The X Factor. “I had to come to England to try and achieve my dreams”. When she arrived to the auditions in Manchester she almost went back home, “there were 22.000 people there and I was thinking ‘How the hell am I going to do this?’” But Ruth is a fighter, and she made it all the way through until coming fifth in the competition giving some outstanding and breathtaking performances such as Bon Jovi’s Always, Bob Dylan’s Knocking on Heaven’s Door and Prince’s Purple Rain were an instant Internet sensation (over 100 million YouTube hits) . She also had the chance of singing with worldwide artists such as Mariah Carey, Take That or Beyoncé and was publicly supported by the likes of international stars Judi Dench, Johnny Depp or the Brtish Prime Minister Gordon Brown.


After a successful European tour (over 200 concerts) Ruth has published various singles such as Burn (2011) and The Night (2013). Dancing in the Rain has already been #1 on iTunes and charted at #7 in the Official Spanish Chart.

The authors

Dancing In The Rain is a song co-written by Ruth Lorenzo with Jim Irvin - who has worked with international artists like Lana del Rey and David Guetta - and Julian Emery - leading producer of British band McFly. 


Produced between Madrid and London, Ruth wrote this song during one of her darkest moments in London: "I learned to accept adversity and just take it as a challenge to continue to fight in what you believe". That is the message of the theme. The song has an international-pop style, with parts of the lyrics in Spanish and English, and it recalls Titanium by David Guetta "for its message of light and hope," says Lorenzo and Katy Perry's Unconditionally for its "pop style and catchy chorus”.

Lyrics of Dancing in the rain

Luz, yo quiero ver luz
Poder pintar de color un nuevo amanecer
Vivir, amar,
Sentir y saber que

Hoy, puede que no salga el sol
Aunque llueva
Tú y yo sabremos bailar
Nadie nos puede parar

We're dancing in the rain
Dancing in the rain

Life, gets you every time
Open up ,
You never know what you will find
You never know what waits inside

So, live
Like you'll never stop
Take this chance
And give it everything you’ve got
Come on and let the rhythm drop

We're dancing in the rain
Dancing in the rain

Keep on like it's never ending
Keep on till the light of day
Keep on dancing in the rain
The rain, the rain

Deja caer
Deja la lluvia caer
The rain, the rain, the rain

Deja caer
Deja la lluvia caer
The rain, the rain, the rain

The Rain, the rain
Dancing
Dancing
Dancing

Dancing

Deja caer
Deja la lluvia caer

Aunque llueva y nos mojemos
No pararemos de bailar

Keep on dancing in the rain
The rain, the rain
Light, I want to see light
Paint the break of dawn
Live, love
Feel and know that

Today, the sun may not rise
But even if it rains
You and I will dance
No one can stop us

We're dancing in the rain
Dancing in the rain

Life, gets you every time
Open up ,
You never know what you will find
You never know what waits inside

So, live
Like you'll never stop
Take this chance
And give it everything you’ve got
Come on and let the rhythm drop

We're dancing in the rain
Dancing in the rain

Keep on like it's never ending
Keep on till the light of day
Keep on dancing in the rain
The rain, the rain

Let it come down
Let the rain come down
The rain, the rain, the rain

Let it come down
Let the rain come down
The rain, the rain, the rain

The Rain, the rain

Dancing
Dancing
Dancing

Dancing

Let it come down
Let the rain come down

Even if it rains and we get wet
We won’t stop dancing

Keep on dancing in the rain
The rain, the rain
Lumière, je veux voir la lumière
Pouvoir peindre en couleurs un nouveau lever du jour
Vivre, aimer,
Sentir et savoir qu’aujourd’hui

Il est possible que le soleil ne se lève pas
Même s’il pleut
Toi et moi, nous saurons danser
Personne ne pourra nous arrêter

Nous dansons sous la pluie
Dansons sous la pluie

La vie, te surprend toujours
Sois confiant
Tu ne sais jamais ce que tu vas trouver
Tu ne sais jamais ce qui t’attend à l’intérieur

Alors vis
Comme si tu n’allais jamais t’arrêter
Saisis cette chance
Et offre-lui tout ce que tu as
Vas-y et laisse le rythme retentir

Nous dansons sous la pluie
Dansons sous la pluie

Continuons comme si cela n’en finissait jamais
Continuons jusqu’à ce que le jour se lève
Continuons à danser sous la pluie
La pluie, la pluie

Laisse-la tomber
Laisse la pluie tomber
La pluie, la pluie, la pluie

Laisse-la tomber
Laisse la pluie tomber
La pluie, la pluie, la pluie

La pluie, la pluie
Dansons
Dansons
Dansons

Dansons

Laisse-la tomber
Laisse la pluie tomber

Même s’il pleut et que nous nous mouillons
Nous ne nous arrêterons pas de danser

Continuons de danser sous la pluie
La pluie, la pluie
