New single "Finally Found You" available on iTunes.
Blog by a girl that met Enrique in Madrid before the show..She's from the UK and has an illness, so this was organized for her by a Make-a-Wish foundation.."We chatted about how he's become kind of a rap artist" (?)..Wonder what was that chat about LOL
Here';s another picture of Enrique and her from Flickr, however the pictures are copyrighted
4) The big night, it's time, OMG!!
Me and mum had to meet Jaime (our Spanish Make-A-Wish representative) at the arena
at 8. So, we walked over there, and to our luck it started raining - thundering
and lightning'ning'ning Didn't know when to stop there xD. But wait,
imagine the worst heavy rain your could think of... Times that by 10... Add some
thunder and lightning? BAM - we were stuck in that. Obviously we were
undercover, but we couldn't go ANYWHERE without being soaked. Luckily the storm
passed when we had to meet the second Make-A-Wish family. They were so nice! The
person who asked to meet Enrique was unfortunately in a wheelchair. Bless 'er :(
I'm still in touch with her and her sisters though. :) So, we finally got to go
to the VIP area, and we were just round the corner from where Enrique was
meeting a few others before us. Surprisingly, I was VERY patient. I just sat
there, waiting, not saying a word, not even saying ''omg I'm going to meet
Enrique in minute" just patiently say there until the EI crew member waved his
hand to say, ''OK, your turn!". Now this is the time I jumped up and RAN in...
Not even hesitating!
This is the time when I first
spot Enrique, and the first thing I saw to my mum is "Oh my god my, he's there,
look!! It's Enrique!!". Oh wow, I had no clue what to say. I just kept staring
at him and observed how he was talking/reacting to what people are saying,
etc... He first went to my wheelchair friend. She brought him some Belgium
chocolate, and his words to that was - as he was walking to keep them save
somewhere - "Is this real Belgium chocolate?!" her response: "yep!" then he was
like, oh awesome!! Then they had a few photos taken, had a chat, he signed some
of her stuff, and too more pictures. Then he finally gave her a kiss and moved
on to walk away when one of the EI crew members said "Enrique..." then pointed
to me. As soon as he turned around and looked at me I shoved his birthday card
in his face and said "Not to open until next week!!" which he smiled and said
''Ohh, OK!". He then grabbed me and faced the camera, with me basically died and
gone to heaven I just went with the flow, smiled and looked at any camera I saw!
He then gave me a kiss, and said I was ''Very beautiful''...... Words can't
explain that, coming from HIM! Then he grabbed me to take a photo again. We then
chatted about where I'm from, how old I was, which I responded "15, 16 3 days
after you" with a big smile :D and then we chatted about his camera men and how
he's come kind of Rap artist. He then went onto give the other girl one more
kiss and me another kiss... I got 3 kisses out of this, but I honestly can't
remember where the 3rd one came in :O - but then after that we left the room and
went to go into the arena to attend his Madrid Euphoria tour concert. His
concert was mostly in Spanish, he sung some songs in English - like 'I Like It'
and 'Tonight I'm Lovin'/F**kin You and 'Hero' and 'Do you know (Ping Pong song)'
- but I think the rest was in Spanish, I enjoyed it anyway :D
Thanks for sharing girl!
Lovely that the girls had their dreams/Wish come true - Such a very special time for them !! These make a wish foundations are so awesome but it takes money for these dreams to come true so If you ever have a spare couple of dollars, it would be wonderful to make a donation to one of them - I know lots of companys and well known artist ect donate towards these make a wish foundations & I every now and then give to the one in Aus - They are all over the World and it's a great feeling to know you have helped out just a little towards making a childs dream come to fruitation. : ) Check for one in your State/country : )
Auw, what a lovely story to read. I know that foundation. It's indeed here in Belgium that you can do that for kids who are sick. Love that initiative. I'm glad they could meet Enrique and that he was sooooooooooo sweet to them. Makes you realise again how sweet and down to earth he is hu ?
Oh and he said that he loved Belgium chocolate ! Of course you do Enrique ! Belgium is 'the' country of our Famous Fries and Chocolates ! LOL !
