This song was about Ghana



"Another Star"

Stevie Wonder

Another Star
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
For you there might be a brighter star
But through my eyes the light of you is all I see
For you there might be another song
But all my heart can hear is your melody
So long ago my heart without demanding
Informed me that no other love could do
But listen did I not though understanding
Fell in love with one who would break my heart in two oh
for you love might bring a toast of wine

But with each sparkle knew the best for you I pray
Oh for you love might be for you to find
But I will celebrate our love of yesterday
So long ago my heart without demanding
Informed me that no other love could do
But listen did I not though understanding
I fell in love with one who would break my heart in two oh oh oh
For you there might be another star
But through my eyes the light of you is all I see
Oh for you there might be another song
But in my heart your melody will stay with me
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la

Ghana "free forever"

The flag of red, gold, green and the black star became the new flag in 1957. Designed by Theodosia Salome Okoh, the red represents the blood that was shed towards independence, gold represents the mineral wealth of Ghana, the green symbolises the rich agriculture and the black star is the symbol of African emancipation.[16]

When Stevie sung the song in Lagos, Nigeria people cried everywhere.My mother had to hold me because I was crying so hard.It's a shot out to Africa.

Que tenga un dia llena de felicidades, hoy, y manana tambien. Lo siento que estaba llorando con su mama.
