Jeannie Ortega :: My First Concert

By: Sindy

Jeannie Ortega's first album, No Place Like BKLYN, debuted at number one on the Billboard Top Heatseekers chart, and she plays an up-and-coming singer in an independent film due out later this year. But before all the success, Jeanie was just a screaming fan at her first concert. We sat down with her to talk about it.

Sindy: What was the first concert you ever went to?
Jeannie Ortega: Muppet Babies on Broadway doesn't count, right? Ha! No, um... I guess I'd have to say the Backstreet Boys.

Sindy: Where was it?
Jeannie Ortega: Um, was it the Nassau Coliseum? Yeah, I think it was the Nassau Coliseum on Long Island.

Sindy: Cool. How was the show?
Jeannie Ortega: It was great! I had never been to a real concert before and I didn't really know what to expect. It was just incredible. There were pyrotechnics everywhere; the band was flying on ropes and stuff. We had really great seats too. It was so much fun.

Sindy: Who did you go with?
Jeannie Ortega: I went with my older cousin because we were both really big Backstreet Boys fans and she was just like, "You know what? I'll treat you for your birthday gift." And I was just like "Oh my God, we're sitting so close!"

Sindy: Did that first show inspire you to want to become a musician?
Jeannie Ortega: It did inspire me to make sure that my shows are as good as they can be. Just to know that a concert could be that exciting was really inspiring. It was so just in-your-face, so when I finally got to perform myself, I really realized how much work it is. They really did know how to put on a great show and get the crowd excited. Man, and I really enjoyed the explosions.

    I thought it'd be cool for all the anime fans if there was a forum where we could find friends who like the anime we do :) Personally I really need some more friends who like what I do. Maybe you'll find someone who shares your love for something really obscure! Including manga too. To start off here are some favorites of mine: (just because one isn't here doesn't mean I might not like it too so everyone please share yours!) Black Butler D. Gray-Man No.6 Yu-Gi-Oh Seraph of the End Puella Magi Madoka Magica Horimiya Kekkai Sensen Free! Kyoukai no Kanata Tamako Market (especially its movie!!) My Little Monster Mekakucity Actors (and that whole music project that it's based on) Toradora! haven't finished reading/watching but like: (if you like it I'll make it a priority :)) Akagami no Shirayuki-hime Pandora Hearts Kyou Kara Maou Kuroko no Basket Noragami Kiznaiver  Bungou Stray Dogs The World Is Still Beautiful Ajin Haikyuu!! Aldnoah.Zero Princess Tutu That's all I could think of for now! What are yours? Note: No bashing other people's faves! Have debates/flame wars elsewhere. (Especially about Sword Art Online. Let's not even touch that)

    Finding Nemo, only because Finding Dory took awhile to establish itself.

    Which channel do you think as of today is the best channel for kids today on cable. I would probably go with Disney XD. It's just as good as it was back in 2009 in my opinion and it has a great selection of shows. What do you think is the definitive channel for kids in 2016?
