Jimmy Mitchell - Eres Tu

Jimmy is a sightless and mentally challenged vocalist from Dallas, Texas. This recording is one of many that was made in nearby Denton, Texas presumably in the mid to late 1990s.

Brother Russell writes:

"Jimmy's performances are a stunning, incandescent triumph. Mitchell represents not only pure and uncorrupted musical genius but the indomitable nature of the human spirit."

- Otis Fodder

This song is a cover version of a Spanish one by the group Mocedades. The original song was #2 in 1973 Eurovision Song Contest. Also this song appears on Peter Segal's 1995 movie 'Tommy Boy".
