The Colombian artist is expected to break the record of attendance to one of her upcoming shows.

Shakira has agreed to sing a free show—her first free event in Mexico,  in Mérida, Yucatán on July 16.

The concert will be sponsored by a group of Mexican entrepreneurs, who reportedly paid the singer aprox. 15 million pesos (about a million and a quarter dollars) hoping the show will increase tourism to the area.

Good idea we think.
