For some reason and given the purpose of this concert (collaborating with the Hogar del Niño), we expected that many interesting events would happen on this night… and guess what? The concert exceeded all expectations!! We could mention a number of examples of hardwork and effort; starting with the Live Drawing Show with the Muse Seek Project and the kids from the Hogar del Niño School for the Deaf, who created numerous pieces of work while listening to the DJ’s music (pretty awesome!), as well as Dominican artists, MelyMel, El Poeta Callejero and Sensato, who themselves have overcome a series of obstacles throughout their lives to become who they are today – terrific entertainers for the more than 5,000 people who attended, among them; numerous members of the Casa de Campo community, special guests and music lovers! It was at 10:40pm when the awaited star appeared on this marvelous venue of Altos de Chavon, characterized by his stunning, relaxed and cheerful personality – and after interpreting his first song, the inner Armando Pérez (Pitbull), under the watchful gaze of his audience said the following: “I’m sometimes asked: Pitbull, why do you no longer make music for “the streets”? My reply is: No, I do not make music to stay in the streets. I make music to step out of the streets. Pitbull why do you dress the way you do? I answer: Its to show you the meaning of growth, maturity and what it is like to change from being nothing to being something… because I don’t care, I love it! We make music for the whole world, because we don’t care! And we are at Altos de Chavón in the Dominican Republic tonight… because we don’t care, we love it!”
The evening flew by in the midst of numerous world hits, standing ovations, singing and dancing. Just imagine what occurred during songs like “I Know You Want Me”, “Give Me Everything”, “Bon Bon”, “Rain Over Me”, among others… This, accompanied by an impressive spectacle of colored lights, sexy dancers, wide screens and perfect sounds, literally filled the amphitheater with life and joyfulness Pretty cool, huh?
A wonderful Pitbull concert in Altos de Chavón!By midnight, the mission was accomplished. The more than 5,000 attendees, not only enjoyed an unforgettable concert, but also collaborated with the most important element of the night: the Hogar del Niño. In celebration, Mr. 305, left the stage accompanied by a rain of colored confetti and fireworks – a delight to a pretty satisfied public…. And if something we might add to this wonderful evening is how lucky many of us were to actually be photographed next to this talented artist after the concert…. 😉
