My First Concert

One of the first concerts I went to without my parents was a Luis Miguel concert.  In Guatemala we didn’t have a lot of artists performing and this concert was pretty much the event of the year for all the teenage niñas.  I must have been 15 or 16 and I will never forget being at the concert with my cousin Jennifer and seeing him live.  Girls where screaming and going crazy and just felt so grown up.

I grew up listening to Luis Miguel, knew so many of his songs by heart and would  spend hours in my room playing his LPs ( si I know, a lot of you have probably never hear music on an LP) and singing songs  like “Isabel” “Cuando Calienta el Sol” , “Fria Como el Viento” or “La Incondicional” at the top o my lungs while I daydreamed about the chico I had a crush on. It’s amazing how music can transport you back in time and make memories come back to life.
