The lyrics of Belize’s national anthem, ‘Land of the Free,’ were originally written as a protest song by Belizean soldier and civil rights activist Samuel Alfred Haynes, in 1963.After independence, eighteen years later, the song became the country’s national anthem. Belizeans have been singing it ever since, but never in the creole language. Well, this Saturday, well known creole singer Leela Vernon, along with distinguished musicians Emmeth Young and Henry Martinez, will release the creole anthem. A CD RELEASE PARTY will be held this Saturday in Punta Gorda.
