Shakira Immortalized in the Form of A Statue



A six-tonne statue of Latin pop diva Shakira has been unveiled in the Caribbean port city of Colombia.

Colombia natives celebrated on Wednesday November 15th the unveiling of the homegrown pop diva Shakira's statue.

The six-ton, 4.5 meters tall statue was unveiled by the singer's father only hours before a festive benefit concert organized by Shakira.

"Barranquilla is the big breast that fed and nurtured me as a human being, a woman and an artist," said Shakira. "Returning is a chance to be with all the people from whom I learned and to pay homage to my roots."

Shakira returned to the city of Barranquilla on November 15, to perform at a festival benefit concert that she organized to raise money for an arts school for children displaced by civil war in the South American country.
