Manuel just walked to school and is now on his way to talent show rehersal. He was asking Frank about how he sounded while singing La Bamba when he heard the teacher. The teacher was angry at the record recorder for not working. Manuel asked ¨is it broken?¨ The teacher replied ¨NO.¨ after that Manuel dropped his record but it did not break.
It was the night of the talent show, and Manuel had not told his family what he was going to do. The talent show started and the acts were good there was even a act with kids dressed up as a tooth and a toothbrush. After the karate kid it was his turn. He started to mouth the words La Bamba when the record disc stopped.
So Manuel Started to sing a verse of the song which was...¨Para bailar la bamba.¨ Over and over and in the end the adudience cheered for him!!! People surronded him and he got the limelight he always wanted.
