Transcript of Shakira
Born February 2nd 1977
Shakira was born in Barranquilla, Colombia. She is the daughter of Nidia Ripoll and William Mebarak. She has 8 half siblings from her father's previous marriage.
Shakira wrote her first poem when she was 4 years old called "The Crystal Rose". Growing up she loved her dad's typewriter and finally got one when she was 7. The poems eventually turned into songs. When she was 2 her half brother died from a motorcycle accident. So later on she wrote her first song called "Your dark glasses" which was about her dad. She titled it "Your dark glasses" because after the incident her dad always wore dark glasses to hide his grief.
She tried out for her Catholic schools choir but her music teacher said she sounded "like a goat". Yet Shakira preformed a dance every Friday and everyone called her the "belly dancer girl". "Thats how i discovered my passion for preformance" she said.
Shakira recorded her first album called Magia with Sony Music Colombia in 1990 when she was 13 years old. She preformed 3 songs to get 3 albums.

Why I chose Shakira
I chose Shakira because she is very inspiring. She started off trying to sing, got turned down, was a dancer, and now dances and sings. Even though her teachers didn't think she could sing it didn't stop her which i think is fantastic.
Quotes of hers
"My brain, I believe is the most beautiful part of my body."
"I think I look like a chipmunk."
