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 think she played well as Hermione (You did it right) because when she was sitting at the dinner table as Belle, she just sat there with this scary smirk on her face. Lol  :)
