Menudo @ Arie Crown Theatre 

I was 13 years old.  I had never been to a live show.  I was about to see my idols for the first time.  I was a nervous wreck!  But the excitement was beyond anything I had ever before experienced.  The picture shows you my vantage point.  I was not close to the stage…at all!! lol I got my tickets at the last-minute because I hadn’t even heard they were going to be performing until about a week before the actual show.  I went with my best friend and her mother.  I should say that I was beyond disappointed that Miguel wasn’t in the line-up.  It was a huge shock that Roy was there since I thought that this was Miguel’s Farewell Tour.  Oh well.  It’s still a moment I will never forget.  The following video was captured from an old VHS tape.  I appreciate mementos such as these, as they bring back the most wonderful memories.
