In 1995, Shakira founded the Pies Descalzos Foundation. It is a Colombian charity with special schools for poor children all around Colombia.

During her career, Shakira has performed at a large number of benefit concerts. In 2002 she sang at a Party in the Park concert fundraising for the Prince’s Trust. That same year she performed at Divas Live which support VH1’s Save the Music Foundation. On July 2, 2005 she performed her hits “Whenever, Wherever” and “La Tortura” on the Live 8 benefit concert at the Palace of Versailles, near Paris. On July 7, 2007, the singer opened the German leg of Live Earth in Hamburg. Her set included “Don’t Bother”, “Inevitable”, “Día Especial” (with Gustavo Cerati) and “Hips Don’t Lie”. Shakira also performed at the “Clinton Global Initiative”, where she performed her hits “Underneath Your Clothes”, “Inevitable” and “Hips Don’t Lie”.

On May 17, 2008 Shakira and twenty other Latin American and Spanish artists performed in Buenos Aires and Mexico City to raise money for Shakira’s Latin America in Solidarity Action “America Latina en Accion Solidaria” (ALAS Foundation) charity.

Shakira Personal life


Shakira was raised Roman Catholic. Shakira currently lives in The Bahamas. In 2000, she started dating Antonio de la Rúa, the son of the then President of Argentina Fernando de la Rúa, a romance that made headline news throughout Latin America. In March 2001, he proposed to her. There have been many rumors regarding the couple over the years. In June 2007, Latin American media speculated that the couple had finally split up. On the previous days, Shakira and Antonio were seen in a restaurant in New York City, facing and denying the rumors one more time. Shakira’s future mother-in-law Inés Pertiné claimed the wedding would take place in September 2007 in the mansion which Shakira owns in the Dominican Republic, but the wedding did not happen.

She also said that Shakira has already ordered Argentine designer María Pryor to design her wedding dress. All this was denied by Shakira herself in Mexico.De la Rúa and Shakira remain engaged. A Twitter update from her on September 4, 2009 stated “We are neither married nor fighting . We are very together and very good. 9 years!” Shakira has stated their relationship already works as a married couple, and that “they don’t need papers for that.” Shakira is interested in world history and frequently studies the history and languages of the countries she visits. After her Oral Fixation tour ended in summer 2007, Shakira attended a class in Los Angeles at UCLA, on the History of Western Civilization.

She used her middle and last names, Isabel Mebarak, and told the professor she was visiting from Colombia so as to avoid being recognized as a celebrity. Shakira is a cousin of model and 2005–2006 Miss Colombia, Valerie Domínguez.

Shakira Career

Shakira’s debut album, Magia, was recorded with Sony Music in 1990 when she was only thirteen years old. The songs are a collection penned by her since she was 8, mixed pop-rock ballads and disco with electronic accompaniment, however it was hampered by a lack of recording and production cohesion. The album was released in 1991 and featured Magia and three other singles. Though it fared well on Colombian radio and gave the young Shakira much exposure, the album did not fare well commercially: only 1,200 copies were sold. and the music video for Magia became first national pop video in Colombia.

After the poor acclaim of Magia, Shakira’s label urged her back into the studio to release a follow up with more hit songs, to give the album potential.Although little known outside of her native Colombia, Shakira was invited to perform at Chile’s Viña del Mar International Song Festival in February 1993. The festival gave aspiring Latin American singers a chance to perform their songs, and the winner was then chosen by a panel of judges. Shakira performed the ballad “Eres” (“You Are”) and won the trophy for third place. One of the judges who voted for her to win was then 20-year-old Ricky Martin.

The second studio album Peligro of the same genre was released in 1993, but Shakira was not pleased with the final result, mainly taking issue with the production. The album was better received than Magia, though it was also considered a commercial failure, due to Shakira’s refusal to advertise it.

Shakira then decided to take a hiatus from recording so that she could graduate from high school. In the same year, Shakira starred in the Colombian TV Series “The Oasis”, loosely based on the Armero tragedy in 1985.

Shakira Early Life


Shakira was born on February 2, 1977 in Barranquilla, Colombia. She is the only child of Nidya del Carmen Ripoll Torrado and William Mebarak Chadid, who are of Lebanese, Spanish (Catalan) and Italian descent.She has eight older half-siblings from her father’s previous marriage.

Shakira means “thankful” in Arabic. It is the feminine form of the name Shakir. Her second name, Isabel, is also that of her paternal grandmother, meaning “my God is my oath”, “my God’s house” or “my God is abundance”, and her name is a Spanish given name for Elizabeth. Her second surname name Ripoll is Catalan. She spent much of her youth in Barranquilla, a city located in northern Colombia. Shakira’s business acumen is often attributed to a high IQ, which is reported in the entertainment press to be 140.

Shakira wrote her first poem, entitled “La Rosa De Cristal” (“The Crystal Rose”) when she was only four years old. As she was growing up, she was fascinated watching her father writing stories on a typewriter, and asked for one as a Christmas gift. She got her wish at age seven and continued writing poetry. These poems eventually evolved into songs. At the age of two, an older half-brother was killed in a motorcycle accident and at the age of eight, Shakira wrote her first song entitled “Tus gafas oscuras” which was inspired by her father, who for years wore dark glasses, to hide his grief.
