Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll Hailey McCann-pd. 6

Shakira is a 39 year old Colombian musician who speaks English and Spanish. Her birthday is February 2, 1977. She is not only a singer but she is also a belly dancer. She has been belly dancing since she was 10 years old. Shakira wrote her first song at the age of 8 and signed her first record deal at 13. Shakira's father, William Mebarak Chadid, Lebanese and her mother, Nidia Ripoll Torrado, was native Colombian.

Shakira is tied to the 8 themes by cultural interaction and economics. The reason I said cultural interactions is because some of her songs are very inspirational and they could have helped a lot of people with their life. For example, her song "Waka Waka" is extremely inspirational. It is inspirational because she is telling people that if something goes wrong to not give up and to brush it off and keep trying. Shakira's music is an example of cultural diffusion because you can listen to her music anywhere is the world and not only in Colombia. I also said economics because you need to pay to see her in concert and you paying for that is how she makes a living. Also, some of her money goes to the government.

Shakira has many different quotes that she says but some of them are more powerful than others.

1. " In this life, to earn your place you have to fight for it."

2. "Scars remind me of just how far I've come."

3. " there's no better make-up than self-confidence."
