The 2014 World Cup will soon come to a close and a team will be declared champion. This year Latin diva Shakira will perform at the closing according to msn.com. She will perform her single La La La (Brazil 2014) featuring Brazilian musician Carlinhos Brown. This song is off of the Latin diva’s latest tenth album which is self-titled.
The song on the album was originally called Dare (La La La), but Shakira reworked it especially for the World Cup states songfact.com. This is the third time she will perform for the sporting event. She also put on a show for the World Cup in 2006 and 2010. According to songfact.com she performed Waka Waka (This Time For Africa) with South African Afro-fusion.
According to msn.com She has been flying the flag for the World Cup since the competition began last month (Jun14), asking soccer fans to show their support for the event by taking a “flag-based selfie” and then sharing them online using the tag #daretodream. This is what got Shakira the opportunity to perform for the World Cup this year. She gave this statement about performing:
“I have an intricate relationship with football for obvious reasons, and I truly understand what the World Cup means to so many people, myself included,” the singer said in a statement. “The fans have shown the most incredible support for this song and I can’t wait to perform it for them,”
The singer was hoping that her native team Colombia would advance, but they lost to the hosting team Brazil. It always entertaining when sports and music come together this way there is something for everyone to watch. Below is the video La La La (Brazil 2014).
