Shakira plans a Latin tribute at upcoming Super Bowl
BARCELONA, Spain — Colombian music star Shakira says she will pay homage to Latin culture alongside Jennifer Lopez at the 2020 Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show in Miami.
Speaking Monday in Barcelona, Spain, where she lives with her long-term partner, Spanish soccer star Gerard Piqué, and their two children, Shakira said that she was fulfilling a dream which also had “a very important purpose.”
“To celebrate that culture, to showcase it in a country where Latinos have also struggled a lot,” she said. “I feel really humbled and with a great responsibility in my hands to represent the Latino community.”
The Grammy winner, who turns 43 on Feb. 2, the day of the Super Bowl, is currently promoting a documentary and live concert album from her 2018 “El Dorado World Tour,” to be released worldwide on Nov. 13.
In late 2017, Shakira left fans worried after she was forced to postpone the European part of the tour due to a vocal cord hemorrhage.
