Shakira, who was born on February 2, 1977 in Barranquilla, Colombia as Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll, is a Colombian pop-rock – singer and songwriter. At the beginning of her career she sang in Spanish and had her first success in Latin America and Spain. Her first English-language album Laundry Service made her a global pop star in 2002. According to event company Eventim, she has sold more than 75 million singles and albums worldwide.

Shakira 's father Don William Mebarak Chadid, who works full time as a jeweller and also writes books, is a native New Yorker of Lebanese origin, her mother Nidia del Carmen Ripoll Torrado is a native Colombian with Spanish - Catalan roots. Shakira is her only child together; "Shakira" is Arabic and means "the grateful". She maintains contact with her half siblings from the first marriage of her father. At the age of 17, she moved with her family to Bogotá, later left Colombia and moved to the US to Florida, near Gloria Estefan and her husband, who produced two albums for Shakira. After she settled in the Bahamas.

From 2000 to 2010 Shakira was with Antonio de la Rúa, the son of former Argentine President Fernando de la Rúa. Since 2010, Shakira has been dating Catalan footballer Gerard Piqué, who is just ten years younger than her. Shakira rented a house in Barcelona, where Pique plays football. On January 22, 2013 their son Milan was born and the second son, Sasha, was born on January 29, 2015.

In addition to her native Spanish, Shakira speaks English and some Portuguese.

Shakira's mix of rock, pop and Latin rock made her famous throughout the Spanish-speaking world in the 1990s. But only with the change from the Spanish to the English language followed the breakthrough on the North American and European market. Unlike artists like Ricky Martin or Soraya, Shakira is not only a Latin star, but also moves in other genres of music.

Her idol is the Nirvana singer Kurt Cobain. In addition, she indicates that bands like The Beatles, The Cure, Scorpions, Led Zeppelin and The Police influence her music. In addition, due to the origin of her father, Arab influences play a role in their music.

The Literature - Nobel Prize winner Gabriel García Márquez wrote about her: "Shakira's music has a personal touch that is unlike any other. No one can sing and dance like her, at any age, with such innocent sensuality that seems to be her own invention."

Even as a child Shakira wrote her own lyrics in her mother tongue Spanish. Even today she still writes a large part of her songs herself, but she works with various other songwriters like Luis Fernando Ochoa and Lester Mendez. Shakira could only write her first English texts with the help of a rhyming dictionary. She says: “It is not a problem to order a pizza in English or give instructions to a lawyer, but to write a love song in a language you learn is a difficult job.”

Meanwhile, her English has improved so much that she does not have to rely on these tools so often. But one editor of the American journal Vibe says: "In Spanish her music is pop with poetry, and in English her texts are drowned in clichés." Her lyrics are often about love. But there are also songs with political or socially critical statements.
