What's up Global Grinders?!
I know its been a while since I've blogged but I'm ready to start again and stick with it!!! With Father's Day right around the corner I thought it would be great to share with you my 2 amazing dad's. Sounds like they are gay right? Ha. That would be cool too... but they're not! I have my Dad Freddy Bailon who I call 'Papi' and my step dad Joe Felix AKA 'Papa Joe!' And on this father's day I just feel so thankful for these two amazing men that God has blessed me with.
The greatest thing about them is that they are NOTHING alike ha! My Papi is a real entertainer... It's because of him that I love to Sing and perform. He came to the U.S. from Ecuador to be the lead singer of a salsa band in Queens N.Y. He left all of his family in Ecuador and came ALONE to the states with big dreams.
I have always admired him for being fearless and going after his dream! His passion for music didn't end there, it was passed down to my sister and I. From a young age the 3 of us would sing 3 part harmony and perform at community events, weddings, and at church. I definitely believe that I got my talent, my sense of humor, and my face (especially) from my dad! He's worry free and can always find a joke in a bad situation.
My Papi is ALWAYS the loudest in the room and laughing harder than anyone else! Ask him to sing anytime anywhere and he'll have a cd in his back pocket ready! LOL. I've always admired these things about him! He's such a free spirit!
