Mexican pop diva Gloria Trevi, Puerto Rican reggaeton star Don Omar and other Latino artists have recorded a bilingual version of the US national anthem "The Star-Spangled Banner" in a show of support for migrants in the United States. The Latino-oriented record label Urban Box Office (UBO) said Friday it will put the new Spanish-English version of the US national anthem on the market Monday to coincide with the US Senate's restarting debate on immigration legislation. The recording, dubbed "Nuestro Himno" or "Our Anthem," is set to "urban Latino rhythms" but respects the song's traditional structure, UBO said in a news release. Each artist decided whether to sing in Spanish or English.
