"I desperately wanted to work with talented Puerto Rican artists for "Candlelight", which led to connecting with René. He went beyond just making the music for the film; he poured his heart and soul into it, and the result is absolutely stunning and breathtaking. Hurricane Maria defined our history, and his music lived up to the task of capturing the trials and spirit of Puerto Rico."
