Becky G fans went from dancing in the mirror to dancing at the Versace Mansion.
Last Friday, the Shower singer flew some of her biggest fans into Miami from all over the country for a private performance, after they won a contest in which they had to record covers of her songs.
“The winners are actually some really die-hard fans from L.A. that I see at my shows all the time, so I know they are ride-or-die and did everything to get here,” said the pop-rapper at the AT&T Latino’s “A Night With Becky G” event.
Becky (born: Rebbeca Marie Gomez) showed off her talent for freestyling with an acoustic performance inside a tent by the pool. A small audience sang along to hits like Break a Sweat and Lovin’ So Hard.

“To me it means everything,” said the San Antonio, Texas, native, about spending quality time with fans. “I just get to do what I love and travel the world and on top of that to share that with people who are special to me.”
The artist also spoke about her highlights of 2015 and kicking off her acting career on the Fox show Empire. She was also recently cast as the Yellow Ranger in the new Power Rangers movie that starts filming next year, which she is excited about.
“It’s insane because that’s literally what we grew up with, and I remember me fighting with all my primos, ‘I’m this Ranger!’ ‘No, I’m this Ranger!’ ” she recalled. “When I got the role, I called each and every one of my cousins and my uncles and my aunts and was like, ‘Yo, it’s happening.’ ”
In the future she also looks forward to possible collaborations with other artists she admires such as One Call Away singer Charlie Puth.
“Charlie started off as a songwriter, so hopefully we get in the studio,” Becky said.
