July 4th is Independence Day in the U.S. and in recognition of this is the video below of famed Brazilian musician Caetano Veloso performing “Soy Loco Por Ti America.”

Composed by a trio of Brazilians including Gilberto Gil, the song can be interpreted as a tune that praises America the country as well as the American continent.
