Lynn Ponder: At Festival People I learned that Demi Lovato was an amazing performer and singer. Loved that she started talking about the XFactor and asked the audience if they new her girlfriend Paulina Rubio, and sure enough that got the latino crowd roaring. She sang some songs that I had heard on the radio, loved them but had no idea she was the singer. I keep up with different genres, but I confess that I spend a lot of time hearing my Latino music wepa!
Getting ready for the possibility of an interview with Demi Lovato at Festival People I engaged with her followers on Twitter and read a lot of their bios which most of them stated that Demi had saved their life. I wondered about this and was dying to interview her, but that was a dream that did not come true…for now! A good thing happened during the concert, this question was answered, as Demi went on to give some heartfelt advise about life struggles and overcoming them. Demi is a great example of hope and proof that in life you can become better no matter how hard your journey has been. Her worldwide fan clubs on Twitter communicate using hashtag #LOVATICS, she has more than 17MM+ followers!!! Demi is enchanting and has an extraordinary voice, I was so impressed and talked about it during the concert with Juan Manuel Rótulo, he said “Es una GENIA” and I agreed!
During Festival People, press was allowed to be front and center stage only for the first 3 songs to capture artist performance via pictures, but I was trying to tweet, Instagram video, Vine, get good pics and even shoot a video with my iPhone.. uff that was challenging. Plus the audience is really close behind us, screaming and trying to grab Demi, which makes my job a little harder, as we are between the artist and the fans. I did the best I could, took some pictures with my new Nikon camera and shot a little piece of Demi’s song with my iPhone. Hope you enjoy as much as I did YaY
