Shakira's hips don?t lie! With her famous hip-shaking, belly-dancing moves and her rich, throaty voice, this singer/songwriter/musician rocked her way first to the top of Latin American charts and then on to international superstardom. Born in Colombia, Shakira released her first album at age 13 and has since achieved phenomenal popularity in both English- and Spanish-language markets. In 2003, the sultry songstress was voted Sexiest Woman in Music Today by Blender magazine. Her 2006 release ?Hips Don?t Lie? shimmied to the ?most-played song? rank in radio history. Winner of more than 60 music awards, Shakira keeps firm creative control over her own music, writing most of the poetic music she performs. Shakira also cares deeply about world peace, serving as a Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF, the United Nation's International Children's Emergency Fund. And this powerful musical force actively helps the children of her violence-torn home country through her Fundacion Pies Descalzos the (Bare Feet Foundation).
