Here’s Five Fast Facts about Penelope Robin.
She loves chick peas, or as she likes to call them, “garbanzos”
I looove garbanzos so much! I get cans of chick peas and serve them all in a bowl by themselves with salt and pepper and just have that for lunch or dinner sometimes! lol
She’s got a big heart and loves to inspire.
I feel very humbled every time someone reaches out and tells me that I inspire them to play an instrument or to follow their dreams, so I hope that through my music I can also inspire people in other ways. It’s so easy to be kind to others, specially those that may need a little more love, or to be better to our planet and animals. All we need to do is try! I have a song I wrote for Earth Day called “World full of Love” about how “all we need is hope and a world full of love!”
She’s competed in the Junior Olympics.
I used to swim competitively with my brother (who swims amazing!) and I made it to the Junior Olympics once! I didn’t do very well but I was so proud because I had pushed myself really hard and challenged myself to make the cut, so reaching that goal felt really great!
The first concert she ever went to was her own.
Haha….yes. I had never been to a concert in my life! I had just turned ten and I got invited to sing for a huge family concert with thousands of people in Buga, Colombia opening up for Karol G! I was so nervous and excited all at once! I remember they sang the National Anthem and then announced me and there I was…on the same stage as Yandel, Cosculluela and Karol G singing my heart out and speaking in Spanish (which I dont’ do too well!) lol It was an amazing experience! I can’t wait to be back in Colombia because everyone was so special and kind to me!
One of her first gigs landed her in someone’s living room as an art piece — talking to a live owl!
Yes! When I was about 5 I was asked to be in different videos, including an art video which had me doing a monologue having a conversation with an owl. Yes, a live owl! This was an art video to be presented during Art Basel and it turns out it sold! Soooo…. I am in someone’s living room in a video talking to an owl! If anyone ever meets the owner of this video you HAVE to message me and let me know you saw it! hahaha
BONUS: Penelope is terrified of cruises!
