I was there!

May 28th 2010 was my 5th year wedding anniversary! I got as present, a ticket to watch Roberto Carlos Show in San Jose, California.
Was our grandson first time watching a Brazilian show. 

Roberto Carlos has been so large a pop music presence for so long that when he first emerged he was nicknamed "the Elvis Presley of Brazil" and once opened a show there for Bill Haley and His Comets. But 50 years, 120 million records and various stylistic shifts later, he is more often described as "the Frank Sinatra of Latin America."
No Latin American has sold more records than Roberto Carlos, who performed Friday May 28th at HP Pavilion, part of a North American tour that wraps up a year's worth of events commemorating half a century as a recording artist. Ask him to explain the secret of his long success, and the answer hints at his chameleon character and tastes.
"I listen to and like all kinds of music, from bossa nova to country, and every once in a while I'll take a risk," the singer, who just turned 69, says in a telephone interview from his home in Rio de Janeiro. "But rock 'n' roll, that backbeat and that instrumentation, is always in my style, even if it's smoothed out a bit."
He had performed 2/3 of the show in Spanish language instead Portuguese, but the most important was the emotion I felt!

O importante é que emoções eu senti!
