The musical song Camino – Christ, You Are My Future has been selected as the official song of the upcoming Papal Visit to Hungary.
The song by Márton Vizy and Dávid Ágoston Tóth was arranged for the event by singers Attila Dolhai, Renáta Szűcs, Szandi, Bogi Nagy, Gergő Dánielfy and Márton Vizy in a new, symphonic version.
Its lyrics reflect perseverance and victory over darkness. The Hungarian authors and stars joined the call of Pope Francis who had asked all people of goodwill to promote peace.
The Hungarian stage musical (2022) on the life of Saint Ignatius of Loyola features Camino, depicting the hazardous pilgrimage of the saint.
“My feet are muddy / My back is wet / And thunder chases me. / But fears are fading clouds / And I’ve crushed the pain by might / In this lunatic true-epic, angelic-demonic / Fight for Light!”
The song will be premiered on 28 April, 2023, in the Papp László Sports Arena, immediately preceding the arrival of Pope Francis.
Performers will include Attila Dolhai, Szandi, Renáta Szűcs, Bogi Nagy, Gergő Dánielfy and Márton Vizy, the Forráspont Band and the 4 Chords Show Choir.
The song is available with English subtitles here:
As we wrote before, Pope Francis will visit Hungary between April 28 and 30, here is the planned program.
