First of #2014Moments: LATIN GRAMMMYS courtesy of Verizon Wireless!

Back in September, I announced that QueMeansWhat.com would become an ambassador for with Verizon Wireless. It was a great move! Follow along the ongoing conversation by following the hashtag #VZWbuzz for tips on mobile lifetstyle, wireless coverage and major events! In November, I headed to Vegas for the 2014 LATIN GRAMMYS – talk about a major event! Not to mention, it was my first time in Las Vegas!

2014 was a great year for concert going for me, in general! I got to attend my first Marc Anthony concert and I had front row seats to the San Antonio to see Juanes! Music is such an important part of my life – of anyone’s life. It brings back memories, it’s there when we are creating new memories, it soothes us when we need it, it pumps us up when we need that, too! For me, listening to artist like Marc Anthony, Juanes, Enrique Iglesias, Shakira was what helped me and inspired me to learn Spanish. I was always encouraged to listen to Spanish music to help me learn the language but had a hard time finding other music than Tejano or mariachi that I really enjoyed. These artists fulfilled that piece for me. And since, have introduced me to so much more. Attending the 2014 Latin Grammys in Las Vegas was an incredibly special event to me!

Here are some photos from some of my favorite performances of the night! (Yes, there are two of Marc Anthony but that’s because his duets with Carlos Vives and Magic were amazing!)

It was quite the night! Sorry, I didn’t get any photos of Juanes. I was too busy singing my heart out while he played his medley of hits! As far as my first night in Vegas, while fellow #VZWBuzz Ambassador Byrdie showed me the ropes of slot machine gambling, I didn’t win. (insert sad face) But it was lots of fun!

¡Mil Gracias Verizon Wireless! Not just for the trip but also for the reliable service to get to share my experience online with all of mis queridos.
