Shakira Performing for the President
Superstar singer Shakira will celebrate U.S. President-elect Barack Obama's White House victory - with a performance at his inauguration party.
The Hips Don't Lie hitmaker is reportedly slated to join stars including Susan Sarandon, Spike Lee, and Anne Hathaway at the glitzy event in Washington, D.C. next month.
She was a vocal supporter of Obama during his election campaign, telling reporters: "Obama can restore peace and the world's confidence in the United States."
In return, the Democrat voiced his admiration for the Colombian singer's charity work in aid of Latin American children.
And Peruvian newspaper El Comercio reports that Shakira is now lined up to perform at a celebration to be held after Obama is formally sworn into office on 20 January.
