It’s Famous Friday!

Shakira

Look for Shakira performing at halftime during this Sunday’s Super Bowl show. Shakira is a Columbian singer, songwriter, dancer, business woman, record producer, and philanthropist.

She was born and raised in Barranquilla, Colombia. Her father is Lebanese and her mother is Colombian. Shakira is most known as a Colombian pop singer. Her first album was when she was 13 and she is now 42.  Shakira’s hit, Hip’s Don’t Lie, was No. 1 on the Billboard Top 10.  She has talked about the difficulty of overcoming obstacles while becoming an international pop star. Her first albums were in Spanish. She taught herself English and crossed over to the Anglo-American Market and became an international star.

Her appreciation of her Arabic and Latin heritage is noticed often in her music by the sound and her dance moves.  Miami will be the perfect setting for the Super Bowl LIV halftime show which will be co-headlined by Shakira and Jennifer Lopez.
