"Proud Corazón" is a song from the Disney/Pixar film, Coco. It is sung by Miguel Rivera during the Riveras' celebration of Día de Los Muertos at the end of the film.

While Miguel, dressed as a mariachi, plays the guitar that once belonged to his great-great-grandfather Héctor, his cousins Abel and Rosa provide accompaniment with an accordion and a violin, respectively.

Lyrics

Miguel: Say that I'm crazy or call me a fool
But last night it seemed that I dreamed about you

When I opened my mouth, what came out was a song
And you knew every word and we all sang along

To a melody played on the strings of our souls
And a rhythm that rattled us down to the bone

Our love for each other will live on forever
In every beat of my proud corazón

Our love for each other will live on forever
In every beat of my proud corazón

¡Ay mi familia! ¡Oiga mi gente!
Canten a coro, let it be known
Our love for each other will live on forever
In every beat of my proud corazón

¡Ay mi familia! ¡Oiga mi gente!
Canten a coro, let it be known
Our love for each other will live on forever
In every beat of my proud corazón

Composition

Proud Corazón is a guitar-driven love ballad mainly in the key of F major, but towards the end of the song the key changes 2 semitones to G major

Miguel's (Gonzalez's) vocals span from A3 in the first verse to D5 belts following the key change

Trivia

  • The song was originally to be sung by MAIKA.
    • Adrian Molina cites himself as the reason why it ended up being sung by Anthony Gonzalez.
  • According to Lee Unkrich, Miguel wrote this song himself. All the other songs in the film are either traditional Mexican tunes or were supposedly written by Héctor.
