Hola Mi Gente! I am in the process of branding myself as “Ponderela” a space that I will use to talk to you and share information that could help you in this journey of ours called Life. As part of branding myself online, I get the opportunity to meet brands that align with my views and likes. Which is why I was thrilled to be invited to the Latin Billboards this year by AARP en Español. Did you know that AARP is a membership organization for people age 50 and over, they operate as a non- profit advocate for its members and as one of the most powerful lobbying groups in the United States. And in keeping up with times, they are using social media to empower, communicate and teach us about the different programs that are available related to work and retirement.
I was blessed to get amazing tickets to the Latin Billboard Music Awards by AARP and seriously they were really good seats in the middle front, as you will see, the pictures reflect the seats. The Billboard Latin Music Awards grew out of the Billboard Music Awards program from Billboard Magazine, an industry publication charting the sales and radio airplay success of musical recordings.
This year my sister Lynn Ponder, Founder of webcitygirls// was selected by Billboard to weigh-in with artists and music experts as part of the Billboard Latin Awards LIVE Blog, an honor and an amazing opportunity for her.
I enjoyed every moment of the Latin Billboards Award Show and specially celebrated to the music of the most awarded artist of the night: Marc Anthony and a big WEPA for Marc Anthony who took home 10 Billboard Awards this year: Artist of the Year, Hot Latin Song, Digital Song and Latin Airplay Song of the Year for “Vivir Mi Vida”, a track that spent 17 weeks at No.1 on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart—a record for 2014. Marc was interviewed the day before at a Q&A with Leila Cobo at the Latin Billboards Music conference and talked about his kids being interested in ‘Vivir Mi Vida’ song and that’s when Marc really took interest in the now mega hit, which I personally love singing.
