On April 3, 2006, Shakira was honored at an United Nations ceremony  because she created the Pies Descalzos Foundation , a charity that helps to protect children from violence in Colombia. At the event she said: "Let's not forget that at the end of this day when we all go home, 960 children will have died in Latin America".
I admire that even her friends told her that she had a goat’s voice she never gave up in her singing career. And how she helps out the kids from Colombia. Plus she knows how to dance really well. And how she wanted to be a model but became a great singer.
