The concert of Karol G
Sarita's goosebump moment
The concert of Karol G in Colombia – Sarita’s goosebump moment
“Hi, my name is Sarita and I am Colombian. My goosebump moment was when Karol G, a Colombian Reggaeton singer, came here to her hometown, where I am from, and held a concert. At the beginning of the event, we were all given bracelets that lit up with each song she sang in different colors, and she told us that she was incredibly happy to be here in her hometown singing for us and she told us that we were all a family. But the most amazing part came when she sang a Vallenato song, which is a very representative thing here in our culture and when she started singing the whole stadium lit up with the colors of the Colombian flag, red, yellow, and blue, and it was amazing.”
A surprise for her fans
The concert of reggaeton singer Karol G in her hometown, Medellin, last December 5, gave goose bumps to more than one. The singer performed her greatest hits such as “Tusa”, “Mi Cama”, “Poblado”, “Ay, Dios Mío”, “Caramelo”, “200 copas”, among others.
However, as a surprise for the audience, Karol G also performed Colombian music. She invited a young girl to the stage to accompany her performance of the vallenato “Tarde lo conocí” by the late singer Patricia Teherán on accordion.
Before taking the stage, the urban artist shared an emotional message through her Instagram stories, in which she expressed her happiness for singing in the city where she was born.
