I’ve spent a sizable chunk of this week dancing at home to Shakira’s new CD, She Wolf (it was released on Monday). I’m in love with the title track… Dang that thing’s catchy!
Would you believe that Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll (born in Colombia on February 2, 1977) has sold almost 2 million albums for every year she’s been alive? Fifty million so far, to go with her two Grammies and seven Latin Grammy Awards.
And she’s finding some pretty cool ways to use her star status by supporting a number of charities and organizations, including the Pies Descalzos Foundation, a Colombian charity that helps fund construction of schools in impoverished areas, and UNICEF, for which she travels as a Goodwill Ambassador.
When it comes to travel, it must help that homegirl speaks fluent Spanish, English, Portuguese and Italian, or that she can sing classical Arabic and belly dance, too. Wow!
