On the heels of Hispanic Heritage Month, music legend Vicente Fernández came out of retirement to pen a corrido for Hillary Clinton, Buzzfeed’s Adrian Carrasquillo reported Tuesday night.

“El corrido de Hillary Clinton” starts with Fernández speaking about Latino unity, before breaking into his support for Clinton. Here is a quick translation of what Chente sings:

I am Latino
Through and through
So proud of that.
And I’ll remind you, my brother,
We need to unite, hand in hand.
Until Hillary Clinton
Is guaranteed a victory.
We are an important family
That always moves forward.
My freedom, my rights
Hillary respects them.
With her as President,
We will always have a bridge.
My people were hurt
By someone who insulted us.
Hillary, we are with you.
You can count on our vote.
You will be our voice
When you become President.

The song’s melody is very similar to “Los Mandados,” a Fernández hit about a migrant crossing the United States-Mexico border and being captured by immigration officials.

After the song, Chente makes a plea to Clinton, asking her to not forget about Mexicans and Latin Americans. He also said he would visit the White House when and if Clinton wins the election.

The video was produced by the Latino Victory Project, founded by Eva Longoria and Henry Muñoz III. As BuzzFeed reports, in 2000 Fernández performed for George W. Bush at the 2000 Republican National Convention.
