Winner of the SIC Golden Globe Award in the Best Performance category, A Garota Não – the stage name of singer-songwriter Katia Oliveira – thanked her for the award by reading a poem of her own.
“I’m from April 2, and it’s a bad neighborhood in Setubal. Just wait a little while until the end,” she began to ask the maestro, so as not to interrupt her conversation.
You can read his words here:
“We live in a time of Buddha statues, plastic flowers and gold chests of drawers
We laughed a lot at the loud music coming from the stands
We live in a time of kombucha, training, soft skills, and gratitude
Let’s find out how to thank the banks for the interest they charge us on housing
We are living in the busiest time ever
Goals, objectives, “even if I get robbed”
There’s no effort that’s not worth it, we’ll all be LOFT, TAP
We live in a time of absolute majorities, power, leadership, and meritocracy
Is merit measured by teeth, school grades, or mob scores?
Thank you for this opportunity, the Golden Ball is in the hands of such a flawed being
There are those who are very lucky
“Lucky for me gave me a lot of work.”
