Budweiser Scholars @ Vicente Fernandez Concert Tour

14 Oct

Last weekend Luis received a scholarship from the Hispanic Scholarship Fund (HSF) and Budweiser.  Only three students in the country received this scholarship.

Part of the Budweiser Scholarship included tickets to see Vincente Fernandez, a mexican musician in concert.  The day before the concert Luis also learned that the scholarship included VIP backstage passes for a meet and greet with Vincente Fernandez, an interview with a Spanish newspaper and Spanish news station, free beer, third row seats, and being presented on stage before the concert with the scholarship check.  Yea, that rocks!

Forgive most of these pictures as they were taken on my cell phone camera.

This man was awesome!  He was hardcore with no intermissions, no breaks, just non-stop singing for four hours. I am thinking all those straight shots of tequila he took after every song kept his energy up.  He was so amazing with his fans, excepting all kinds of gifts while he sang, read all the letters and notes that were passed up to him, and sang every song his fans requested.

You could read the short newspaper article of Luis on Mundo Hispanico here.

I wish we were able to keep the giant check!  =)
