The Cuban-American artist graced the stage wearing a head-to-toe pink ensemble with pretty pearl and beaded details. Her ethereal look was on par with her meaningful performance.
Back in December, the Havana songstress shared a cute post on social media showing the special bond between her and her father. Next to a black and white photo of the father-daughter duo embracing each other as Camila’s dad kisses the top of her head.
“You don’t even know how much it means to me now, that you were the first man that really loved me,” beghan her caption. “...- guys it melts my heart seeing you send me pictures of you and your dads because of first man,” she added.
