Are You Game Day Ready? Let’s Get That Glam On!

Hello Fashionminies!

After working in business casual attire all week I finally got home to catch up with the scores of one of my favorites Baseball team the New York Yankees! To be honest I don’t understand much about sports but when it comes to Baseball, Basketball and Hockey I’m all for it. Football eh? But if you aren’t big baseball fans, that shouldn’t stop you from hitting up a sports bar with friends and watching the game and supporting the team of your choice. I know us ladies love to look our best no matter what as well as feeling comfortable and ready for those selfies. Being that I love going out with friends on my spare time we decided to watch the seven thirty game at a friend’s house and I came up with a few casual luxe outfit ideas of my own inspired by an MLB Hats I chose the NY Yankees hat that I found at Fanatics which by the way is the only the leading website for everything sports! They have everything you can imagine wrap your head around on it. So if your favorite teams fall in any of the College, NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL, Nascar, Soccer, Olympics,or etc you definitely have to check them out.

Here is an image of my favorite is MLB NY Yankees Hat and these casual luxe outfits that you can mix and match.(To enlarge image click on it)

The reason why I chose this hat is not only because its a Yankees hat but because it also has a sentimental value when I see it. My grandfather used to be the biggest NY Yankees Fan in the world. Growing up he was like my second dad and he would ask me to watch the games with him back in Puerto Rico. When my grandfather passed a few years ago every time I saw the Yankees logo it would remind me of a hat he had back in the day exactly like this one. And growing up I always stayed true to the Yankees so as soon as I saw this hat I knew that would be the hat that I would proudly wear at any baseball game. Meanwhile, what I love about the outfits I styled is that they are all comfortable and perfect for any woman no matter what shape or form. It allows to feel sexy without being over the top for that game day with your significant other, friends, family and so on. Who said sport fashion has to be boring? Let’s bring some sass to the table. Men you can also take this same hat and pair it with an amazing color scheme so you can give your lady a little competition. We are talking about sports so a little competition sounds fair here. Enjoy! xx

Love,
E <3

Concert Review: Blake Shelton – Ten Times Crazier Tour & Dan+Shay Experience.

BACK STORY: Surprising Mom!

10644019_697061297045064_23490904_n

Back in January my mother’s birthday came around and I really had no idea what to get her. She was driving me insane with how much she loves The Voice and how she could watch it a thousand times as long as they kept Blake Shelton on the panel. I, in the other hand agreed with her to watching all seasons as long as they kept my “boyfriend” Adam Levine. So as mother and daugther we have a tradition of watching The Voice now. Then one day I told her “Mom, I swear if Blake Shelton ever comes to a concert I will buy you Meet & Greet Passes just to see your reaction if you meet him” and laughed it off. Her on the other hand stared at me “Really? I don’t know how would I event start speaking to him”. But that’s when I realized that could always be a good idea for a gift. So as a totally amazing daugther right? I went online and search for Blake Shelton Tour Dates and I saw that Orlando was listed for his recent Ten Times Crazier Tour. The tickets were not on sale yet so I had to subscribe for the special pre-sale code. Three days later my mom tells me we are going out of town to visit family and that we were leaving at the same time and day as the tickets went on sale. I panicked and try to stall so I could purchase the tickets away from her. But we had to leave and I had no access to the internet so I tried downloading the Livenation/ Ticketmaster app but it wasn’t working on my phone. So I emergency texted my two older cousins so they could buy the pair of tickets but they were unavailable. I freaked out and while my mother was driving I was trying to keep it together while watching the tickets slowly being taken away from my hold. Finally by a miracle I get enough WiFi to score the tickets but it was too late for the Meet & Greet Packages. But thankfully I got us close enough and the results on August 30th, 2014 were totally worth it. Because I had the chance to repay my mother a little bit back for all the things she has done for the both of us. Yeah sounds cliche but there was no better feeling than seeing her get all emotional and excited like a total fan girl when she found out I got her tickets to see her favorite country singer and man Blake Shelton. She even teared up. THE FEELS!

CONCERT TIME:

Held on August 30th, 2014 at the Amway Centre in Orlando, Florida.

Opening Acts: Neal McCoy,Dan & Shay, and The Band Perry.

shelton1.jpg

Neal McCoy was the Host & Entertainer from beginning, middle, and end of the show. He knew how to keep everyone entertained as he performed various songs with his band as well as paying tribute to Michael Jackson. He was very funny and a pleasure to listen to. 

Dan and Shay is Nashville’s new duo Dan + Shay (consisting of Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney) who took the stage and rocked out to songs off of their album “Where It All Began”. Their original sound of a mix between rock/pop and country. Its like Rascal Flatts ,One Republic, and Usher meets Lady Antebellum. They are very talented they sound so amazing and flawless live its like listening to their album with more adrenaline and passion. I definitely see a bright future ahead full of more albums and success for this group.  Some of my favorite songs that they performed are “Stop, Drop,& Roll”, “Show You Off”, and “I Heard Goodbye”. They are both very handsome and their voices are perfectly arranged in pitch, harmony, and eloquently with their lyrics.

After their performance I got a Meet & Greet Bracelet to meet Dan+Shay after the concert ended. I ran up the stairs from were my seats where across the arena and did a line and I made it just in time before they started closing the line up even IF you had your meet & greet pass (which sucked for some fans). They definitely didn’t expect that many fans at their Meet & Greet. I befriended the couple in front of me and made small talk and all of the sudden I saw Dan and I was like “Oh Crap I am going to forget my name” and the lady just laughed at me and said “Oh honey I’ll be right at the exit in case you faint to help you”. I definitely didn’t think I was that nervous but I gathered myself up and when it was my turn I handed my camera to their assistant. Dan said “Hi how are you? Thanks for getting our album” as I handed him my album for him to autograph. I told him my name and somehow I just blurted out “Of course you guys are very talented, and you’re BEAUTIFUL”. As soon as I said it and realized what I just had said I think my face was pretty much flushed red. -_- … like seriously? But Dan was a real sweetheart and in nano seconds was like “No, YOU’RE Beautiful” and smiled and I was like Eeeppp! Total Fan girl Moment right there! So i smiled said thank you and as Shay signed my CD he places it on the table next to him and then surprises himself and says “Oh Wow you really are” and I’m like what just happened?. So I smile trying to get myself together in between these two and ended up in this awesome photo:

The Band Perry needs no introduction they are one of the most successful bands in Country Music. For those who don’t know much about country music let me give you a quick glance. The Band Perry is a group composed of three siblings Kimberly Perry, Reid Perry, and Neil Perry. They all have vocals and play all kinds of instruments. They released their first self titled album back in October of 2010. Their second album Pioneer was released three years in April 2013 with their number one song “If I Die Young”. The song reached number one on the U.S Billboard Hot Country songs, Hot Adult Contemporary charts, and has been certified quadruple platinum! Some of their top hit songs from their second album also include “Better Dig Two”, “Done”, “Chainsaw”, and “Don’t Let Me Be Lonely”. All of these songs were performed that night and it was incredible. I had never had the chance to see them live and I am so glad I did. They are very humble and they definitely know how to own that stage and keep the crowd wanting more. They graphics in the backdrop screens had really cool lyrics, images of sparrows, and the bands initials “TBP” displaying while they sang different songs.

Blake Shelton: The Man Of The Hour!

So by this point as soon as the Blake came out being revealed on the stage as the curtains rise up my mom literally freaked. And that was the best thing ever! See the pic below:

BeFunky_IMG_1919.jpg

blake.jpg

He literally emerged from the top  of a short stairway and performed “All About Tonight”. He is so tall, so handsome, and so humble. He loves to talk a lot and i mean A LOT! But that made the crowd cheer even more and a true connection. He would stop mid sentence and thank everyone for showing up and showing him support. He even made a Twitter joke which was quite funny about how people from the industry thought no one was going to show up but guess what? Orlando represented country music and the love for Blake to a topnotch. One of my favorite songs of course was ‘Kiss My Country Ass”, “Neon Light”, “Footloose”, “Mine Would Be You”, “Boys Round Here”, and the one that broke my heart “Over You”. A song he wrote along with his wife Miranda Lambert after his brother passed away. This song is so emotional and seeing him perform it live left me speechless. Therefore he teared up because it so close to his heart. He also sang his own cover to  Michael Bublé’s “Home” into a lovely country ballad and the crowd made even more lovely when they all lit up the arena with their cellphones.

10624527_663084993787337_1806010033_n

And of course he sang a couple of more upbeat songs before the concert ended. Bottom line all performers were great, very talented, very upbeat, fun, and definitely not my last country concert!! So if you liked this post please give it a LIKE! <3 thanks for reading!

Love,

Love Always,

21 Uncommon Romantic Gestures That Would Make Any Girl Melt

whatevetziesays:

Here are some really nice tips gentlemen that you could do for your significant other…

Originally posted on Thought Catalog:

1. Play with her hair while the two of you are watching TV. It doesn’t have to be complex, just a little light head touching/hair-messing-with will put her into a near-meditative state.

2. Get your dessert to-go at the restaurant so the two of you can eat it at home while watching a movie/your favorite TV show.

3. Instead of just asking her where she wants to go for dinner — because you know that she loves when you put in the effort to choose, but is really picky when it comes to what she wants — give her three options that you want to go to (including one or two you haven’t tried before, if possible). It’s the best of both worlds.

4. If you spend the night at her place (or even if you share the place) make the bed while she’s in the shower or getting ready.

Its just “Depression” right? – Educate yourself please.

Hi guys so today I decided to really just write this post on something that its more on a personal point and not so much on fashion or music, though it is related to one of the most recent and latest entertainment news on the loss of Robin Williams. This post is about raising awareness and understanding an illness like depression and how it could lead to serious choices. These type of things I really don’t like really talking about often but I think that is the same reason why it keeps happening. Because people keep ignoring depression and mental illnesses and passing along the lines of being dramatic, crazy, you don’t what you’re talking about. But it really is way more than that its not a lifestyle that you choose its something that really does affect you emotionally, physically, and that is when things get real and scary. I think society is definitely a big influence on these type of things too but I’ll get into that later as we go on.

depression

As most of you should know by now it is believed that Williams’s death was because he apparently committed suicide following from a severe depression. I am not here to judge anyone’s choices or what they do with their life but it is so sad to see someone so beautiful, kind, talented, and joyful go in such a horrible way because of an illness that is so cruel to many.  We have seen a lot of Hollywood stars sadly commit suicide in many different ways, we have also heard of those who also struggle with substance abuse, eating disorders, depression, and mental illnesses. From Heath Ledger, Amy Winehouse, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and so many more. But is not only celebrities that are the ones struggling but also people like you and i, individuals who live in the same neighborhood as you or in your school, church, at work, and so on.

I am so saddened to see so many people pointing fingers, judging, and commenting on how weak could that person be, or even bullying them after they are gone rather than trying to understand if this could have been prevented. I really don’t understand how many people are out there who still think that depression, mental illnesses, suicide, or any other disorders are a game. This is serious and the first way to prevent more of these tragedies are by trying to understand one another, with love, compassion, communication, and helping them out.

Did you know that 1 in 4 people suffer some sort of mental health problem.

Emptiness-depression-33252846-479-494

Stop judging why someone is the way they are, the way they dressed, talk, look, appearance, or what they have or don’t have. You don’t know their story and everybody has one. So before you point fingers take a look at your own life. Not a lot of people are blessed to have half of the things you may have or etc so why not share the blessings that you do have with them. If you see someone down, angry, upset sometimes its good to give them their space but its also good to talk with them  or if you are the one feeling frustrated talk or write it out. When you hold things in it can really tear you apart even more. A good friend of mine told me draw, sing, compose, write, do whatever you want but let it out and its true. Use your talents or whatever makes you feel at peace like listening,or expressing it in music.

From a personal point I can definitely tell you that everyone at least once or twice in their lifetime they will go through a phase where they are depressed or think they have lost it all.  But you need to start counting your blessings and not your flaws. There are days you feel frustrated like you are losing your mind or sometimes everything you had planned don’t go right. But you have to let the down falls make you strong and pick yourself up.

I know its hard, I know its not easy and its the reason why I want people to understand that the people who go through an illness like this or have thoughts of taking their own lives they are not weak. It takes a really strong mind to say I want to end this I have no way out or even to think that those are the only choices left for them to have.They are not doing it for attention, or anything like that. If someone wanted to do it they would, no question asked. I am not encouraging any harm of actions at all. I am just saying its an illness that needs to be taken very seriously and before you comment or speak the words “selfish”, “weak”, “idiotic”, “dramatic” or “waste of talent” think about what if you or a loved one was the one with such illness. How would you feel? How it would affect you? Your loved ones? Your dreams?

Though, I will never understand why would someone be so selfish and so low to even be a bully to someone even after they have committed such tragedy. It really just comes to show that really the weak one’s are the one who sit behind a computer screen commenting/criticizing instead of educating themselves and thinking how they could make a difference on someone else’s life that is slowly fading. I am not here to preach but i do hope that whoever is reading this whether you are the weak one’s (bullies), the soul who is seeking for an answer, or the families and friends who can’t understand or get any consolation to this illness to give yourself a chance to educate yourself, to understand, to give yourself a chance and somehow cope with a situation like this.

There is a purpose in this life for all of us, YOU are the light within the darkness. If you want to see a difference in your life take it one step at a time and BREATHE. Don’t let the struggles of life and the negativity take the strong, happy, extraordinary, beautiful, dreamer, talented individual YOU ARE. Life is made out of struggles and if life was easy it wouldn’t be called life. I know it sounds cliche but its so true. It may be a bad day but not a bad life. Please if you feel like your drowning in thoughts open your heart and seek the goodness in it, communicate with someone that will listen to you (God? Beliefs? Family Members? Friends? Psychologists?) the options are never ending. If you need prayer or if you feel like you need to talk to someone I’m here too because I have been there one way or another. I myself have dealt with depression maybe not at the same level as some of you but everyone does I promise. You are NOT alone!

And on a final note I would like to end with this I really think people should really think and educate themselves before they speak. People should never need to made feel worse for suffering from something that its beyond their control. And people should never make the families feel bad either for having someone go through it either. Because at the end of the day we are all humans, we all make mistakes, we all need chances to figure out who we really are, we all live, and breath the same way we need to love one another and support each other. :)

Zoe Saldana Expecting?

 Zoe Saldana is rumored to be a couple of months pregnant. And if this is true that will be one beautiful baby! It’s all I am saying.
 The Avatar star got married to an Italian artist Marco Perego last June. They are both 36 years old and rumors have persisted that the couple want to start a family soon. She recently arrived to “Jimmy Kimmel Live” to promote her latest film “‘Guardians of the Galaxy.” where she suddenly stopped and turn around from cameras while touching her stomach. Hmm.

Instagram -

The actress has yet to comment or confirm if she is expecting or not but time will tell. Although, she has been wearing a lot of loose fitted clothes, we have recently seen her in a tight fitted high-waisted skirt on her official Instagram page and you could see a barely noticeable “baby bump”. But it could also just be the fabric of her skirt. Who’s to tell? Meanwhile, there are also her casual outfits while on a recently grocery shopping spree and the latest video I mentioned above .

Zoe Saldana could be expecting here are some of her latest looks.

ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: MEET ROSEMARY GERMAN.

ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: MEET ROSEMARY GERMAN.

By: Evetzie – Evetzie’s Repertoire: Fashion, Beauty,& Style!

One thing I can say right of the bat is that humility is the first thing I admire of any artist and upcoming artist. I believe that you can be as talented as Celine Dion but if you have a nasty attitude it won’t gain you many friends in the long run. Any industry specially in entertainment you will eventually come along to meet many of those nasty attitudes but when you come across a humble and artistic soul is rare; just like when I met Rosemary German. This lovely young lady was a participant in a talent search here in Orlando, FL.
As I was backstage she simply asked me kindly if I could help her out with her wardrobe before hitting the stage. She had a very nice smile and was very polite on and off the stage. Ever since then I was blessed to be able to have the opportunity to getting to know her even more as a person, friend, and most importantly as an artist.

When you have the opportunity to watch Rosemary take on the stage and perform she makes you feel the emotion in each and every lyric of her songs. Which is one of the most important quality for every artist to have but not everyone has. It is with no surprise that she has been exposed to music since her childhood years. As growing up she was exposed to the music that played on the radio, musical toys plus her father owned a bandoneon who he played every morning so all of these factors definitely took control. What it is surprising though, is that at the age of eight years old she began singing and playing the guitar at her school and church choir. But by the age of nine years old she wrote her first song called “Los Niños de La Calle” (Children of the street). And ever since then she knew very early in her life that she loved music and that she had to pursued it.

If you are wondering what has inspired her music this is what Rosemary had to say:

“My music is inspired by life itself. I write about what happens to me, and what I see going on around me with my friends, family, and strangers. I am also inspired by the things that happen in novels, movies, and anything that makes me feel a strong emotion, whether anger, sadness, joy, much love or heartbreak. I put music to all my emotions, I’m a big romantic. My parents always heard boleros of the 80s and I grew to love that kind of music, so my songs can never miss a guitar and a touch of romanticism like the one present in the songs of yesterday.”

As far as her demo she wants to be able to share her music with the world, and hopes it takes her where her songs need to be heard. Where her lyrics can be of encouragement to someone else as when she was going through at the times when she was in a similar situation when composing them.

Which is one of the major reasons why her fans can definitely relate to her music because she is very honest and clear in her songwriting. The best thing about her is that she has no fear of rejection therefore she pours all her feelings out on paper, whether its her story or someone else’s. Its easier for her fans to identify with her music because and I quote her as it was by far one of the most honest answers I have seen expressed this way: ” We are all equal, we all have dreams, we all make mistakes, we fall, we get up, we fall in love, suffer for love and in the end we all have the same problems or blessings at one time or another.”

Meanwhile, as we kept talking more about her demo I asked if there are any songs or any in particular that could be her favorite pick. She stated clearly that it was very difficult to try to choose one as each of her songs are so full of depth and raw emotion from the moment she wrote them that is very hard to pick one out. “My songs are my babies and I love them all equally” she said.

When I asked her about her favorite experience in her music career so far she said that is very fortunate every day to a have a new favorite experience. “People say life is a roller coaster, and I am enjoying mine completely with its ups and downs. It’s not the goal that counts, but the experiences we have on the way there. Music has many facets and I enjoy them all; when I’m composing, working in the studio, when I’m promoting, and when my work is being recognized. If I had to choose one of them all, I would say composing it’s my favorite one.”

Another strong trait about Rosemary is that she is driven. She is not the type of person who needs to be pushed to do anything, but every time has wanted to achieve a goal her family was there helping her to achieve it. Her family and friends have always been there to support her in every one of her journeys and will continue to do so as much as they can.

As a composer herself she has also been inspired in her songwriting skills by legends like Franco de Vita, Jose Luis Peralez, Roberto Carlos, Rosanna and Ricardo Arjona. “They all are complete artists in every way and theirs songs are an exquisite ride to heaven. I want the people to feel with my music the same way I feel when I’m listening to their music.”

As far as her wildest collaboration, she would love to collaborate with Franco De Vita as she proclaims it would be a dream come true. “He is a master of Latin music and it would be my greatest fortune to be able to work with him.” Meanwhile, another of her biggest dreams is to be able to sing at the “Viña del Mar Music Festival” which is one of the biggest music festivals in the Latin industry. Another of her dream would be to be able to open up for Juan Luis Guerra, who is another of her favorite songwriters. Because he is an artist in every sense of the word and the biggest singer-songwriter that her country the Dominican Republic has had so far, and being able to open up one of his concerts would be a great honor.

I also made sure to ask her if she still get nervous or butterflies in her stomach before a show, being that she has been singing since she was younger and she said:
        “I feel an adrenaline rush just before going on stage, thinking that it is time and I can’t back out, I have to walk out the door and give the best of me. But the truth is I don’t feel nervous, because I practice a lot before any show and when the day comes I only give myself to God and ask him to make the moment be whatever he wants and to shine on me. I ask him to make my music inspire others and bring a smile and happiness to their faces. After that I leave confident that everything will be alright because things are going to happen as he would want them”.

           Things you should be ON THE LOOKOUT for is that right now she is working on her new single that will be coming out soon. So make sure you keep track of her music on her social media so you can stay tuned and get the song as soon as it becomes available.

I also played my round of FUN FACTS with ROSEMARY and this are some awesome ones for her future fans to know ;)

What embarrassing songs might I find on your MP3 player?

Rosemary:
I would say all of them, lol, I am very old-school, but I am proud to be among the few who truly enjoy the songs of yesterday. I have music from Los Panchos to Julio Iglesias, a whole variety of very romantic songs.

Have you ever thought of the fact that If you weren’t singing, what would you be doing?

Rosemary:
Yes I have, I went to college to study architecture trying to please other people. Everyone used to advise me to study something other than music, just in case music did not work out. So when it was time to go to college well I chose architecture. I do not regret having gone to college. Because I learned many things there, but I regret not having studied my passion, which is music. Trying to be something I’m not was the worst decision I’ve ever made, I just wasted time, money, and ended up with a deep depression. So one day I told my family I couldn’t do it anymore, and I’d rather be dead than continue trying to live a life that was not where I belong. I was born a musician and a singer-songwriter, and that’s what I’m going to keep doing although some may not like it. That same day I left college and my family has had to accept me with my music, as there is no other vocation that makes me happier than this.

If you could dabble in another genre of music, what would it be?

Rosemary:
I have always thought that had I been born in the United States of America I would’ve been a Big Band singer of traditional pop-jazz, I think my voice goes perfect with that music and I just love it.

Do you have any hidden talents you would like to share besides signing, and playing the guitar?

Rosemary:
Apart from music I like to help people. I think that helping others is a talent that not everyone has inside. It takes courage and bravery to not only hear about the problems someone has and say you understand, but also care enough to say look, I’m going to help, and this is what we can do to improve your situation. I grew up thinking everyone would like to help others in a difficult situation, and eventually I realized that’s not the case. So, to help people is a divine gift God gave me.

Since this is a fashion and music blog: What fashion trends or style has in influenced your personal style?

Rosemary:
I am very simple, I wear what suits me and is comfortable, I don’t care about brands and don’t obsess with accessories. I come from a very humble neighborhood in the Dominican Republic where there is much poverty, so I just spend money on necessities.
To be honest I don’t like shopping and I don’t have much knowledge of fashion, but I really hope someday I can pay a personal stylist to put together my every day outfit. It will be awesome to finally be trendy. :)

ARTIST SPOTLIGHT : MEET Alonso Solorzano

ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: MEET ALONSO SOLORZANO.

By: Evetzie – Evetzie’s Repertoire: Fashion, Beauty,& Style!
Alonso new3

As most of you may know within my field of broadcasting, I have had one of the greatest opportunity to be working for something that I am so passionate about which is in entertainment and music industry. I am lucky enough to have worked for a local radio station in my city that was holding a local talent search for the next rising star. Many entered and only ten remained to prove that they had what it took to perform on the big stage at House of Blues, Orlando where many popular and talented artist have played. The big prized winner won their first single to be produced by a world known producer, cash prize, and take home the title. But for most of those other contestants who unfortunately did not win the final prize won more than what they bargained for. They won the love and support of a new audience, their voice heard in one of the most amazing venues, and most of all new friendships or collaborations with memories of a lifetime.

When I first heard of Alonso I had not met him properly but I knew who he was from his audition tape submission, and remembering “Wow! He is really talented”. I stood backstage finally getting a break from all the chaos and I look up and he is sitting there quite quiet but he had this beautiful smile that lit up the whole room. And he definitely didn’t look nervous to me though he had just finish his performance with a song he had composed himself “Don’t Take A No”. As I took my time eating whatever was left for the staff I had a cool conversation with him. He had this cool vibe about him, very down to earth, creative, and very passionate about his music. These are a few of the little things I picked up from him that night, little did I know I would be able to see him perform later on a concert with full on production that he produced on his own time and his team. This show titled “MY JOURNEY” was held on June 21st where he took the audience on a journey of his life from the very moment he realized that music was his passion to the up and downs of his life and making a name for himself in the music industry. I will be posting more about this event on an upcoming post later on.

Alonso Solorzano
is a pop, local artist here in Orlando, FL with Mexican roots. He recently discovered about probably three years ago that music was one of his biggest passion and that it was time to pursue it, even though he has been singing for a little while now. But his family is extremely supportive of him and his music. “They may sometimes think i am crazy for doing the things i do and say but its all a part of being an individual and expressing yourself with the love of your life, which mine is music.” he expressed.

His music is mainly in the pop genre but he is personally influenced with all kind of genres. He believes that mixing one genre with others is more fun as it gives him more freedom to explore other sounds and challenge himself as an artist. Not to mention that he is so passionate about his music he wants to keep it fresh, and modern for his audience. His music is inspired by and I quote” Whatever is in my head at the moment, usually something that has clearly impacted my life, in some sort of way. I love to be passionate about everything I do as an artist.”

When asked about how can his fans or new listeners could relate to his music he said its because “I am not that much of a social person outside of my music, so sometimes when I do write I think to myself… Is this what people my age are going through/thinking….? but then I realize that we all go through similar battles in life, and the recent songs I have written were lyrics I needed to hear from someone when I went through a rough patch, example my single “Don’t Take a No” is a song I feel written not necessary by me, but my conscious telling me to never take a no, telling me that it is ok to fail as long as Ii stand back up stronger. I have met so many local artist and people who have been neglected in the industry or in their profession and I want to be that voice to help them. My goal when I started taking music seriously was not for fame or anything but to be able to have a voice and share with people my life experience to make them realize they are not alone.”

He hopes to have much success and hope that his audience will love the music he has worked really hard to create being that the music industry is such a competitive industry to break into. “I think for an artist it is very important to get to know yourself as the artist you were created to be and have discovered in yourself in order to find that success we as artist really need to feel.”

He has an EP coming out very soon with a couple of songs that he is really passionate about which are “Looking For You”, “Don’t Take a No”, “Unforgivable”, and his brand new single “Monster” . When I asked if he had to pick one song that would be his favorite or represented him more as an artist he replied by saying “If I HAD to pick one, I wouldn’t say as my Favorite, but the one that changed my way of thinking about music and life it would be Don’t Take a No, This song made me so much stronger, and it made me find myself as an artist and person.”

Things you should be ON THE LOOKOUT from Alonso are that as of right now he has accomplished more than he could have imagined!

But he is also recently in the midst of finishing the latest recording for his fourth song on his EP. He will also be releasing his brand new single to “Monster” that will play around with a mix of sounds in the Pop/Rock/Electronic genre. Which is a track he feels the best work yet that his team and him has created by declaring that its his best work yet!

He is also in the process of creating a music video for his ballad “Unforgivable” , which is absolutely hands down an amazing song personally I think everyone should listen to. But he definitely is not waving goodbye any chances to perform on stage even if he is focused on the production side of his music as I quote him “As far as shows, right now I am focused on this new single, but if the opportunity comes to perform I will take it. Performing is my favorite thing to do.”
As a composer he has been influenced by great singers like Michael Jackson, John Lennon, and Justin Timberlake just to name a few. But he also gets inspired by life and moments that impact them. Some of his wildest collaborations he would love to work with if given the opportunity would be John Legend, Christina Aguilera, One Republic, Lady Gaga, Usher, Coldplay, just to name a few. He would also love the chance to play his music anywhere he loves and enjoys performing no matter where he is at as long as he gets to take the stage and give you his all.

” I want to show people who I AM as an artist to begin with, I want them to know EVERYTHING I put out is ME. No one is controlling me, telling me what to do, etc. I work so hard for what I have accomplished at a short period of time, and when people listen to me or watch me perform I want them know that it is all part of me. its not an act.”

I played FUN FACTS from ALONSO and this are some cool insider for his future fans to know ;)

What embarrassing songs might I find on your MP3 player?
Let me look…..Heartbreaker by Justin Bieber….? lol! I thought it was a pretty good R&B song when it first came out.

Have you ever thought of the fact that If you weren’t singing, what would you be doing?
Yes, I would probably be in school for the rest of my life trying to become a Veterinarian, or actually be a wild spirit do Wild Life photography.

If you could dabble in another genre of music, what would it be?
R&B, or maybe just Acoustics.

Do you have any hidden talents you would like to share besides signing, and playing the guitar?
I Play Tennis, at one point I wanted to be a Professional Tennis player, and I also teach it.

Do you get nervous before every show?
I get REALLY nervous, My hands sweat, My legs get so heavy I feel like I can even walk. But when I get on stage it all goes away completely.
What has been so far your favorite experience in your music career even if its just starting out or if you have been in it in the long run?
My Favorite Experience was being able to create my own show called MY JOURNEY. A set list of a 11 songs, dancers, props…etc. It was my proudest moment, being able to show everyone in the audience that with just passion and creativity you are able to create something big on your own.

What fashion trends or style has in influenced your personal style?
Well my personal style ranges depending on how I feel or where I am going I like to play with my look. But I feel like an artist I constantly have to see change. Well at least I do. I am very influenced by the “Rocker” look, something stepping out of the norm of what a typical male pop singer wears. Pushing style to the next level whether people like it of not. When performing I am aware the audience is not only listening to my music, but they are also watching me, so what I wear on stage has a lot to do with the theme of my performance that day. And a little insider…. I am a little weird…. when I know I have a performance one day, I dress and get my mind in a “Performer” state, where I feel like I am in the performance from the moment I wake up and step out of my room. ha ha. it works. ;)

Please show love and support to Alonso! I had an amazing time seeing you evolved as an artist in such a short time and I could not be more honored to see you grow even more. Thanks for taking time for Evetzie’s Repertoire Readers!
