In April 2015 Levi Silvanie released a new single Superando accompanied with his most radical video clip yet. inspired by and featuring Alton Paas in a more than impressive way. The word superando was made common by Alton Paas and the Alton Paas Foundation to promote awareness and gain funds for spinal cord injuries (on his island Curacao) and his treatment abroad. In a collaboration Levi Silvanie found the inspiration to write another hit single and hard-hitting video clip with the help of some friends. Colombian film maker Octavio David Curiel and Bonairian Giovanni Giribaldie a.k.a. Zoinx (a.k.a. the rapping barber) they managed to bring a message across and a movement to life.

“To overcome your disabilities you need to use your abilities.”

With that in mind Levi Silvanie and his team produced a documentary concert in Teatro Luna Blou to release his new video clip. With their first performance immediately blowing away the visitors, participants and critics with a dramatic combination of audio and visuals. To start and finish this theater concert/show with speeches from Andy Kirchner (yes, it is I) and Alton Paas. Both dealing with our physical disabilities in our own special way and bringing that message forth.

We are #Superando!

Superando explanation:

Papiamentu:
Supera bo disabilitat ku bo abilitat.

English:
Overcoming your disability with your ability.

Nederlands:
Het overkomen van handicaps met je vaardigheden.

Superando is grew into a larger movement by bringing people together and fight adversities and connect diversities. It’s Levi Silvanie’s way of overcoming himself, and as spread his message over the world;

Overcome your disabilities and have the ability to become whoever you are #GsMeMiss!

Not only am I proud and honored to be allowed to be part of this project and movement, it has been a major inspiration to start writing my story as The Recycled Pirate as to partake in JCI IOBA’s Aspiring Creative Young Entrepreneur Award program (read more here *click click* and here *click click*)

I am just simply me, but together we are simply strong!

Together we can move a world!

Join my brother,

be #GsMeMiss!


#GsMeMiss | The translation:

Djis Mi Mes -‘Simply Me’

In the tram on my way to work
I look out the window and see how my life progressed
Traveling through the streets of my dreams
The place where I longed to be
with every tone out of my mouth
and string of my guitar
I can express

I would not waste a day on earth,
without giving it my best
I do not want to waste a day on earth
with regret

In a world full of evil, I want to be good
I want to be the right thing amongst the wrong
In a world full of evil, I want to be good
In any way, I want to be simply me

When I look in the mirror and see me
I see what others see of me
Nobody is perfect until they are not
That makes me who I am
Do not worry about what you do not have
Do what you can and give it your best
Believe in you with time your time will come

I would not waste a day on earth,
without giving it my best
I do not want to waste a day on earth
with regret

In a world full of evil, I want to be good
I want to be the right thing amongst the wrong
In a world full of evil, I want to be good
In any way, I want to be simply me
