Shakira (Colombian musician) Wiki, Bio, Family, Boyfriend, Husband, Height, Weight, Age & More

ShakiraShakira, born on February 2, 1977, in Barranquilla, Colombia, is a celebrated Colombian musician known for her success in both Spanish and English-speaking markets. By the early 2000s, she had become one of the most prominent Latin American recording artists.

With a Lebanese father and a Colombian mother, Shakira began belly dancing at a young age. By age 10, she was writing songs and participating in talent competitions. In 1990, a local theatre producer’s assistance led to an audition with a Sony Corp. executive, resulting in a record deal for Shakira. Her initial albums, “Magia” (1991) and “Peligro” (1993), achieved moderate success. After a brief acting stint in the Latin soap opera “El oasis,” Shakira returned to music with “Pies descalzos” (1995), which yielded several hits like “Estoy aquí,” “Pienso en ti,” and “Un poco de amor.”

Shakira’s 1998 album “¿Dónde están los ladrones?” featured memorable singles and earned her Latin Grammy Awards for best female pop vocal performance (“Ojos así”) and best rock vocal performance (“Octavo día”). She then aimed to establish a presence in the American market. Her efforts paid off with “MTV Unplugged” (2000), which won the Grammy Award for best Latin pop album. In 2001, she released “Laundry Service,” her first English-language album. Despite some critique of her English-language songwriting, “Laundry Service” was a commercial success, selling over 13 million copies globally.
