Festival People en Español


by Linda Castillo

People en EspanolI was a sophomore in college when I was first exposed to the beautiful sounds of Luis Miguel. At the time, my professor was teaching the class about the subjunctive in the Spanish language and she played the music video for the song La Media Vuelta.

Yo quiero que te vayas por el mundo
Yo quiero que conozcas mucha gente
Yo quiero que te besen otros labios

The song sounded so sweet in Spanish and Luis Miguel was so handsome. I was hooked! Not only did I master the subjunctive in the Spanish language but from that moment on I became a fan of Luis Miguel. Right after class I went to the store to buy the entire album Segundo Romance and I have not stopped playing his music since.

This weekend, September 1 and 2, 2012, Luis Miguel will be performing at the Festival People en Español presented by Target. The two-day musical festival celebrating Hispanic entertainment, culture and community takes place inSan Antonio,Texas. In addition to the talented Luis Miguel, the musical lineup includes Daddy Yankee, Prince Royce, Tito “El Bambino”, Larry Hernandez, 3BallMTY, and Banda Los Recoditos.
