"I have to sing. I have to play. The music is...it's not just in me! It is me. When life gets me down, I play my guitar. The rest of the world may follow the rules, but I must follow my heart. You know that feeling, like there's a song in the air and it's playing just for you? A feeling so close you will reach out and touch it? I never knew I could want something so much, but it's true. Never underestimate the power of music!" - Ernesto de la Cruz in Coco
