Luis Fonsi on Learning Menudo Dance Moves as a Kid: Growing Up Latino

In the new Growing Up Latino episode, superstar Luis Fonsi shares all the memories of his childhood.

The episode starts with the "Imposible" singer describing how Puerto Ricans are different from other Latinos. “Puerto Ricans are well family-oriented and we carry the music in our blood.”

Luis Fonsi’s favorite homecooked meal is white rice -- made in a great 30-year-old arrocera (rice cooker) -- and corned beef. He received many chancletazos because he used to bother his sister a lot.

Luis Fonsi’s best memory en la casa was on Sundays when the Rodriguez family used to gather on la marquesina (front porch) of his abuela's house for a talent show with his primos. At that time, Menudo was popular and Fonsi used to follow the band’s choreography.
