Yesterday, my mom and I went to see Carlos Vives in concert. Carlos Vives has been in the music industry for about 21 years now and he is known for revolutionizing the sound of Vallenato. Although he is accused of not being a Vallenato artist anymore by many artists, he keeps his head held high and continues to sing passionately as he did 21 years ago.
All in all, the concert was amazing. Carlos Vives jumped around like a teenager singing, dancing and even acting. Then the show took an emotional, tear provoking turn when he beckoned a little girl to come on stage to sing with him. She outshined him as she sung his song by heart. She had cancer and her wish was to see Carlos Vives before the possibility of her passing away–a terrible fate for any child.
