Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll
Born in Barranquilla, Colombia on February 2, 1977, known simply as Shakira (meaning "Woman of Grace" in Arabic), is an internationally famous singer and songwriter.  

Shakira is a two-time Grammy Award and eight-time Latin Grammy Award-winning Colombian singer-songwriter, musician, and record producer who has been a major figure in the pop music scene of Latin America since the mid-1990s. In 2001, she broke through into the English-speaking market with the release of her first album in that language, Laundry Service, which has sold over 3.5 million copies in the United States and 15 million copies worldwide. Shakira is the highest selling Colombian artist of all time, having sold nearly fifty million copies of her albums, and the only artist from that country to reach the number-one spot on the Billboard Hot 100 and UK Singles Chart.


According to the United World Chart, Shakira is as of 2008 the sixth most successful artist so far for the last decade, in terms of single sales. She is also the first, and currently only, artist to have two songs in the top ten of the most successful singles since 1999. Los Angeles Times declared Shakira "the most completely adapted crossover performer in contemporary pop music".


Shakira will be awarded with a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame, making her the first Colombian to receive this honor.

Shakira is the most successful Latin American female pop artist in the music history. She is often called Latin Madonna for her impressive record sales in Central and South America. However, the beginning of her music career was not smooth, which she mentions very rarely and prefers not to talk about it. Her international success starts from her third album Pies Descalzos, which was a breakthrough in 1996 in the Americas.
