The 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil are set to begin on August 5, and, to prepare the world for South America's first Olympic Games, Samba star Thiaquinho and rapper Projota have shared the official video and theme song of the event. In the midst of an Olympic event that is already mired in controversy, the two artists present "Alma e Coração (Soul and Heart)" as a hopeful anthem to soundtrack the games. Idyllic vistas of Rio and images of young athletes competing cut in and out of the video as the two artists perform the catchy tune in Rio's Maracanã stadium.
