Transcript of Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll

Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll Shakira has seven half siblings. Shakira first started expressing herself through dance. During school, Shakira would write lyrics on the back of her notebook Shakira was a very intelligent child. She knew the alphabet by the time she was eighteen months. By the age of three she knew how to read. Shakira means "woman full of grace" Shakira was born on February 2, 1977 in Barranquilla, Colombia. At age seven Shakira joined a group of belly dancers at a Middle Eastern Restaurant When Shakira first started singing at school her classmates would laugh at her and say she had an "animal like" sound. Sony/Colombia signed Shakira a record deal when she was only 13 years old. She made her first album, "Magia", when she was 14 years old. Shakira's first hit was her third album, "Pies Descalzos", which was made when she eighteen years old and sold more than 4 million copies. Shakira doesn't eat candy, smoke, drink coffee, or alcohol. Shakira's favorite thing to paint is "fried eggs". She can speak fluent Portuguese, Spanish, Arabic, English and Italian. Shakira hates to wear jewlery. Shakira played a role in the Latin American Soap Opera "El Oasis". On a musical tour to Australia in 2002, Shakira was attacked by a man with a bag full of cement. Shakira wasn't hurt even though the bag was thrown at her. I really enjoy listening to Shakira's music because it has a different style. Shakira's voice has a very unique sound, which fits her style of music very well. Shakira is an extremely good dancer. I like watching her dance because she can move in ways that other people cannot. As a child, she was influenced by the music from her parents culture. She was also influenced by the Beatles, Led Zeppelin and Nirvana.
