This bloody hot Colombian is good at everything she does. And to think, Shaki’s a singer, composer, actress, dancer, and philanthropist. Her composition "Hips Don’t Lie" became the most sold song of the twenty-first century. Music and dancing are really important things in her life. She likes to perform in front of the audience.
It’s not just Shakira’s singing and artistry single her out among other Latin American stars, but also a big heart. She started a charitable foundation to help poor children learn. For many years, Shakira has been sponsoring schools in Latin America and Colombia, where children from poor families can study. What’s more, Shakira received a special UN award for this activity. By the way, the singer speaks five languages fluently.
Her full name is Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll and what a splendid name you are probably saying, aren’t you? So she was born in Barranquilla, northern Colombia. At that time, Shaki’s father had eight children from a previous marriage. In spite of this, he treated his daughter like a special gem. The girl lived in comfort and was surrounded by the love of her family. She learned to read and write early and made her first lyrics being a 4-year-old. They say Shakira, got composing from her dad.
At first, parents believed that Shakira would become either a writer or an artist, as she was still drawing well. However, when little Shaki turned eight it became clear that she would make a world-famous singer. especially since at this age, she wrote her first song, which she dedicated to her father and a broken one on the motorcycle.
