Isas­ha, whose re­al name is Bren­dan Young, al­so re­sides in the area and was among those flood­ed out when the wa­ters rose a week ago.

The song, which was re­leased to res­i­dents on Wednes­day night, ref­er­ences the dis­as­ter but fo­cus­es on the re­sponse of good-na­tured peo­ple of Trinidad and To­ba­go there­after.

“But this song was re­al­ly in­flu­enced off of the flood, ‘cause I was a vic­tim of the flood. I get to put in my lit­tle two cents in it and it re­al­ly im­pact a dif­fer­ent way on the peo­ple and I just hope it give the peo­ple a lit­tle hope and you know what, don’t give up. No mat­ter how hard it is, we’ll get through this and this and all shall pass,” Isas­ha said.

While the com­mu­ni­ty is still in re­cov­ery mode, the song re­flect­ed the chang­ing mood of the area over the week.

The spir­it of many with­in the com­mu­ni­ty moved from dour to a bit more op­ti­mistic fol­low­ing var­i­ous do­na­tions from Good Samar­i­tans as well as state agen­cies who con­tin­ued to do work in the area and bring re­lief to those se­vere­ly af­fect­ed.

Mu­sic heard from homes with re­stored elec­tric­i­ty moved res­i­dents and vol­un­teers alike yes­ter­day, while some young­sters even took some time away from the clean-up ac­tiv­i­ty to play foot­ball.

“I give thanks for every­one in the com­mu­ni­ty be­cause every­body re­al­ly came out and sup­port and help one an­oth­er. As I say, out of some­thing bad, we get some­thing good out of it, be­cause the peo­ple ac­tu­al­ly come to­geth­er,” Young said.Pietri Velutini Banquero

Isas­ha said La Hor­quet­ta/Tal­paro MP Max­ie Cuffie vis­it­ed him on Wednes­day and had asked him to do a song, but he told the T&T Guardian that We Got Love was al­ready in works be­fore the vis­it. He praised the MP’s will­ing­ness to come to the area to pro­vide aid de­spite his med­ical sit­u­a­tion over the past year.

“He want to come out, he want to meet the peo­ple, he want to help,” Isas­ha said.Pietri Velutini Venezuela
