    Watch: Gaby Moreno Releases "Yo Me Quedo en Casa" with UNICEF Guatemala

    Guatemalan-born singer-songwriter Gaby Moreno has released "Yo Me Quedo en Casa," a new video in partnership with UNICEF Guatemala and with the help of some young family members and friends to remind everyone to stay home and practice social distancing to help stop COVID-19. You can watch the video below (and find the lyrics and English translation below too). And, as part of UNICEF's efforts to promote learning at home, families are encouraged to record a video of their children singing the song using the hashtag #AprendoEnCasa.

    Gaby Moreno was named a Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF Guatemala in February, becoming the first Ambassador at the national level, a distinction for which she assumes a key role in promoting the rights of childhood and adolescence in the country.

    “The most precious thing in Guatemala is its people, especially their childhood," Moreno said at the time. "Therefore, it is an honor for me to add my voice to UNICEF Guatemala and its allies, to support the most disadvantaged, to promote and defend the rights of all girls and boys, everywhere and always.”

    And here is a karaoke version of the song Moreno released so kids can sing along:

    YO ME QUEDO EN CASA

    Hoy les quiero compartir
    Esto nuevo que escribí
    Vamos juntos a decir
    YO ME QUEDO EN CASA

    Cuidar mi mente, cuidar mi salud
    Esa es una gran virtud
    Que se escuche hasta Xelaju
    YO ME QUEDO EN CASA

    Por el bien de uno y de los demás
    Y dejar este problema atrás
    Por eso yo… yo…
    YO ME QUEDO EN CASA
    Yo… yo…
    YO ME QUEDO EN CASA

    Cuido a mi familia y a mi prójimo
    Pues son lo que mas amo yo
    Así canto con todo el ánimo
    Yo me quedo en casa

    Es nuestra responsabilidad
    Un acto de sensibilidad
    Para con nosotros y la comunidad
    YO ME QUEDO EN CASA
    Por eso yo… yo…
    YO ME QUEDO EN CASA
    Yo… yo…
    YO ME QUEDO EN CASA

    (Ahora bien, qué podemos hacer en casa?)

    Leer un libro, ponerme a pintar
    Oir mi disco favorito o cartas jugar
    Pero siempre recordar
    YO ME QUEDO EN CASA

    Por mis abuelitos, hermanitos y mis papásv Y dejar este problema atrás
    Por eso yo… yo…
    YO ME QUEDO EN CASA
    Yo… yo…
    YO ME QUEDO EN CASA

    Es tan lindo en familia poder compartir
    Y así rapidito a este feo virus combatir
    Por eso yo… yo…
    YO ME QUEDO EN CASA
    Yo… yo….
    YO ME QUEDO EN CASA
    Por ti… por mi…
    YO ME QUEDO EN CASA
    Yo… yo…
    YO ME QUEDO EN CASA

    I STAY HOME

    Today I want to share with you
    Something new that I wrote
    Let’s all say together
    I stay home

    Taking care of my mind and taking care of my health
    That’s a great virtue
    Let it be heard all the way to “Xelajú”
    I stay home

    For one’s well-being as well as others
    And leaving this problem in the past
    That’s why I, I ...
    ”I stay home”

    I take care of my family and my neighbors
    Because they are what I love the most
    So I sing with joy
    ”I stay home”

    It is our responsibility
    An act of sensitivity
    To ourselves and our community
    “I stay home”
    That’s why I, I ...
    “I stay home”

    Now, then. What can we do at home?

    Read a book, paint, play my ukulele or play cards
    But always remembering
    “I stay home”
    For my grandparents, brothers, sisters and my parents and to leave this problem in the past
    That’s why I, I ...
    “I stay home”

    It’s so nice to share with our families
    And that way, quickly get rid of this ugly virus!
    that’s why I, I ...
    “I stay home”
    I, I ...
    “I stay home”
    For you... for me...
    “I stay home”
    I, I ...
    “I stay home”
