Latin Grammy superstar Ana Barbara recently hosted the winners of Verizon's More SoCal Spectacular Summer Contest to a luxurious VIP experience in Santa Monica.
The event culminated a contest which showcased with a picture and caption how mobile technology helps keep people connected with their friends and loved ones in Southern California.
"Today, mobile technology and social media are essential communication tools wherever we are," said Ana Barbara, whose 465,000 Twitter followers @anabarbaramusic and 621, 595 Facebook friends agree. "Technology lets you get closer with people who may seem out of reach or too far away. I appreciate the opportunity to partner with Verizon for this priceless experience for our two winners."
Yovany Perez of Escondido and Riverside resident Arturo Lomeli, along with their guests, were treated to a private serenade by the "Queen of Grupera Music", who was accompanied by Mariachi Espectacular of Beto Jimenez during the performance.
Afterward, the artist joined all four guests for dinner where she signed autographs, viewed both winners contest entry and had a chance to personally get to know them. She answered their questions on her life as an artist while she also asked them questions. But most of all, smiles and laughs abound for all in attendance.
