Shakira went back to her hometown of Barranquilla (Colombia), right before starting her North American tour, to be the main performer at the inauguration ceremony of the Central American and Caribbean Games. This is the fifth time Shakira is the main act of an international sporting event.
The Colombian singer hadn't given a concert in her hometown in eleven years. She sang three of her hits: last year's solo hit "Me Enamoré," her iconic song "Hips Don't Lie," and this decade's song of the summer "La Bicicleta." She wore an ugly outfit while doing it.
The Central American and Caribbean Games are held once every four years.
In other news, Shakira went to Lebanon, her father's birth country, to give a concert. She shared this cute video of her youngest son, Sasha, speaking an Arabic greeting.
We all love a multilingual family!
