Photo: Shakira Screws Up Colombian National Anthem
Shakira is one of the biggest stars in the world and the biggest star in Latin America but for sure the pride and joy of her native Colombia. That is until she appeared before 31 world leaders this weekend to sing the Colombian national anthem at the Sixth Summit of the Americas.
She apparently made two minor mistakes but that didn’t lessen the Twitter tirades she spawned because of it. Apparently Shakira sang the lyric “El surco de Delores” instead of “En surcos de Delores” She also sang “La Libertad de sublime” instead of singing “La Libertad sublime.”
Colombians were criticizing Shakira that she wasn’t spending enough time in her home country to know the anthem. The naysayers are forgetting her commitment to Colombian children and her efforts to fight poverty in the country.
