John Edmond é um cantor nascido na Rodésia (actual Zimbabwe) que obteve grande sucesso, sobretudo na década de 70, com as suas canções de cariz patriótico.
No início da década de 80, o cantor publicou o single "Portugal I Love You", o qual chegou a ser lançado no Brasil.
Após contactar a sua esposa, ficámos a saber que a mesma era de origem portuguesa, o que inspirou o cantor a compôr a referida canção.
Depoimento de Teresa Edmond
"Portugal I Love You" was written by John Edmond for me "Teresa" now his wife.
John being a song writer singer and entertainer and myself being a dancer met on a show in the 70's fell in love and walla........... he wrote the song for me!, me being of Portuguese descent and a dancer inspired John to write the song.
"Coimbra" was a restaurant that we use to perform at. "Portugal I love you" was released in Brazil in the 1980's [and] became a very well played track on various Brazillian Radio stations. Amazing that you should find it after all these years!
