This Friday, UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador and on-and-off pop star Shakira performed 'Imagine' at the United Nations General Assembly, after Pope Francis' speech.
She dedicated the song to Aylan and Galip Kurdi and introduced the song by saying “our children have the right to equal opportunities, to thrive, to be happy and healthy and safe. Now is the time to not just imagine, but do.”
Shakira, a well-known early childhood education advocate, took advantage of her New York visit to participate in a Fisher Price event. Shakira partnered with Fisher Price last year to design child toys, which proceedings go to Shakira's Barefoot Foundation.
Shakira announced that she will be launching an app to help parents and educators by offering over 2,000 pieces of advice. Fisher Price also debuted the Moms' Hopes & Wishes Study, a study that measured parental attitudes and approaches to early childhood development of 3,500 new and soon-to-be moms.
And finally, Shakira brought his youngest son, Sasha Pique, to travel with her. The family could be seen walking down the streets of NYC and going to the park for a play date. Unlike his older brother Milan, he seems to take more after his father, some guy named Gerard Pique.
