Despite being born in Colombia, Shakira quickly gained global fame after her breakthrough hit, “Laundry Service,” was released in 2001. The album went on to sell 13 million copies worldwide and garnered a glowing review from Colombian novelist Gabriel Garcia Marquez. The Colombian singer studied English extensively in order to write most of the album’s tracks. After the album’s release, Shakira became a household name, and her music is now ubiquitous.

The Colombian singer also found success in the Spanish-speaking world, where her music received widespread acclaim. Gabriel Garcia Marquez, a celebrated writer, wrote four pages of praise in a Spanish-language magazine. He praised Shakira’s sensuality and innocence. Shakira’s first album, “El Tigre,” was released at the tender age of thirteen. In addition to her numerous awards, she has won 10 Latin Grammy Awards.

As a child, Shakira displayed artistic tendencies, and soon began performing Arab dances and songs. By the time she was eight, she had already composed her first song, “Ojos Asi,” which she dedicated to her father. Her next step was to perform on radio shows and television programs. She eventually won the Looking for a Kid Artist competition in 2000. The album went on to top the Latin charts for two weeks and won the Grammy for Best Latin Pop Album.

Aside from becoming a global superstar, Shakira also had a long, rich, and culturally diverse upbringing. She grew up surrounded by books, music, and precious stones. Her father, a wealthy jewelry business owner, was very educated and also wrote books. The young Shakira showed a natural interest in literature from the age of three. By the age of four, she had already learned to read the alphabet and was ready for school.
