New single "Finally Found You" available on iTunes.
Hi Everyone. I wanted to started this post by saying that I do realize how lucky I was last Friday night 7/20. First and foremost because Enrique allowed it to be all good. He could have totally made this into the worst night, instead I'm still floating on Cloud 100 (Enrique is so awesome that he puts you way above Cloud 9).
So it all began when I got my front row VIP tickets to see Enrique and JLo on 7/20. I paid A LOT for them, but I knew it would be worth it, seeing him so close. As far as I was concerned it was the closest I would ever get to him. The concert started and I was right up front, I swear I screamed so loud that Enrique actually looked my way a few times. I think we made some eye contact. He played a great set, and was awesome as usual. Well he started playing Escape, and I honestly felt a moment of panic set in...(my husband was kidding around with me all night and told me I should run on stage and hug him, so I said well you need to lift me over the barrier first). As he continued to sing Escape, I whispered into my husband's ear, "if you really were going to help me, it's now or never"....he instantly lifted me over the barrier and since the steps leading to the stage were about 2 feet infront of me, I ran up.....check out the two clips on YouTube. The one with the side view shows that after he hugged me, I was kind of unsure as to what to do....I was so happy with my hug, that I was ready to come off the stage, but then I asked him if I should stay or go,....not sure what his response meant but nonetheless if he was ok with me having an extra 30 seconds with him, who was I to complain.
These are the links, in the second one, I come in around 2:26
I really don't think he was running from me like he was scared, but who knows what was going through his mind. I'm totally not a crazy dangerous person, and it's obvious by the end of the video that he realized this.
Security was AWFUL to both me and me husband and after 15 minutes, we were escorted out. They clearly told me that they don't work for Enrique, but for the arena, and they don't care what he encourages his fans to do. We never got to see Jennifer Lopez. They treated us like criminals, paraded us through the arena, and then took our pictures and ejected us from the arena. The security guard said I needed to pay for what I did.
Enrique was so amazing, and I'm sure if he was aware that his fans were being treated like that he would not have condoned it. I apologized several times, and explained how sorry I was, but to the security it made no difference. Oh well I'll always have my memories of Enrique, and thank God he treated me so good. His awesomeness has elevated him even more. He is a true star, and best of all a great human being. His kindness radiates from him, and even someone like me who is just a stranger to him, he made sure he helped me down and I was fine before he left me. Much love to Enrique....a truly good and kind person. Oh and that kiss he gave me.....all worth it. It was a cute kiss, nothing crazy just a little tap, but the fact that he did it without me even initiating it makes it even that more special.
I love the support that I got on this page, everyone has been awesome. I know how lucky I am to have video too. I'm still looking to see if anyone knows anyone who took actual pictures. I love what Ines did, and those are the only pictures I have, but I can't print. I want to frame a picture of us. Thanks so much. Because of you guys on this forum, I was able to get 2 pictures from the Univision Website I love you guys on this forum..... I'm # 17 & # 24 click here:
What an amazing adventure! It's true Enrique has so much love for his fans. So sorry that security was so rough with you, when all you did was "steal" a kiss from Enrique. Thank you so much for sharing with us!
You have guts I would never have to climb on stage and hug him. I would be so nervous, probably faint walking up the stairs. lol Congrats on meeting him, he will remember you for sure.
@Reeyna you are so right, thank God the really nice guy next to me recorded the first clip and then I found the other one 2 days later. Thanks Veronica........@Mrs. Sad Eyes....lol I had no time to be nervous. I did get that feeling in my stomach right before I went over the barrier....however once I was over the barrier, I had to get to the steps because I knew at that point if Security got me before I got on stage, everything would have been ruined. The funny thing is once I was up there I didn't have a chance to think about all of the people watching me, I focused on Enrique, and for that one magical minute it really felt like we were the only 2 people there. It's not until after I got back down to the floor that it hit me that I was on stage....adrenaline took over. I am not kidding you, it took me literally 5 days before I could eat. I had no appetite for 5 days!!! Happy to say I lost 3 pounds lol.
Hahaha! that help a lot to become more sexy...I really like your story unforgettable.
Enrique is nice but those security guards are assholes >_/p>
Enrique should protect his fans too.... Enrique >_< dont allow security guards take away your fans!!! >_/p>
I want to stress that Enrique didn't know about this. They waited until he was off before they did it. I know if he had seen them, he would have said something. I've seen him tell security to leave people alone at other concerts, but he probably had no idea. He's a true star love him.
Wow those security guards are so mean >_< Shame on those security guards. :) Thanks for clarifying that Enrique didn't see those silly security guards :D
Yes we did have a good time. I think security was just being ridiculous. Do you have any pictures or know anyone who took pictures while I was on stage with him? Many people were taking pics but it's hard to find them. ....I'm so grateful for the videos, but if there's a pic I'd like to save it too. Lol I watch it so much....
Agreed..cathcing up with happy July moments and here we have some, always yours this will be in your cute sexy top and pretty joyous infectios hello...you did not mob him,..you waited for his cue..he loved it and this will be forever yours......Sarah
Awww thanks Sarah, I'm glad to make you happy. You are so sweet and I am so very sorry for your loss once again. Just knowing that I made you smile is worth it. It was one of the best moments of my life and I look at it as a gift, one of the best gifts I could have ever gotten....the gift of generosity and the beauty of the human spirit. For all of the bad things that happen in the world this was a refreshing good thing...hahaha thanks about my top lol.
