‘Asignatura Pendiente’ by Ricky Martin – Ramon’s goosebump moment
“Hello, I am Ramon. I am from Curaçao, and my goosebump moment is when I went to Ricky Martin’s concert. I went with my sister, and she has loved Ricky Martin since she was a child, so we went together. I bought her the ticket as a gift, as a birthday gift and we went to his concert. And you know, it was a great deal, there were a lot of people. But the most important part was when he started singing ‘Asignatura Pendiente’, which is a song he dedicates to his mother. In the middle of the song he had this moment where he was like sentimental, so he broke down and he was like “No, I have to restart the song because you guys”, the audience, “deserve better”. I have goosebumps thinking about it. And then he started over and he sang and it was great! I loved that song. So yeah, that’s it!”
