Shakira To Perform At Brazil 2014 Closing Ceremony

Colombian pop star Shakira and hip hop artist Wyclef Jean will perform at the World Cup’s closing ceremony in Brazil.

It is her third consecutive appearance at a World Cup closing ceremony, after performing in South Africa in 2010 and in Germany in 2006.

Shakira will be singing her “La la la (Brazil 2014)” with Brazil’s Carlinhos Brown ahead of the July 13 final at Rio de Janeiro’s Maracana Stadium.

Wyclef, guitarist Santana and Alexandre Pires will combine on Dar Um Jeito, the main theme song for the World Cup.

Shakira, whose home team Colombia will face Brazil in the quarter-finals, said she was “thrilled” to be 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 37-year-old singer, whose hits include Hips Don’t Lie and She Wolf, has a son with Spanish and Barcelona defender Gerard Pique.

Announcing the lineup, FIFA also said Brazilian singer-songwriter Ivete Sangalo “will bring a distinctive local flavor to the show” with a medley of well-known Brazilian numbers and will be joined by Pires.
