Ernesto: I have to sing, I have to play! The music, it's-it's not just in me, it is me. When life gets me down, I play my guitar. The rest of the world may follow the rules but I must follow my heart. You know that feeling? Like there's a song in the air, and it's playing just for you?
A feeling so close, you can reach out and touch it
I never knew I could want something so much but it's true
You must have faith, sister. Woman: Oh, but padre, he will never listen! Ernesto: He will listen - to music!
Only a song, only a song has the power to change a heart Never underestimate the power of music
Woman: But my father, he will never give his permission! Ernesto: I am done asking permission; when you see you moment, you musn't let it pass you by. You must...seize it.
Interviewer: Señor de la Cruz, what did it take for you to seize your moment? Ernesto: I had to have faith in my dream. No one was going to hand it to me, it was up to me to...reach for that dream, grab it tight and make it come true.
