Shakira: from hailing hostages to making millions
Shakira has just become a LiveNation singer. Following steps of Maddona, U2 and Nickelback ‘My Hips Don’t Lie’ singer has signed a 10 year contract with LiveNation. The deal will encompass tours, recordings, sponsorship, and merchandise throughout the world. The whole package is worth between $70 million and $100 million.
Singer has flown to Paris, France to meet recently freed political prisoner Ingrid Betancourt.
Shakira was the first celebrity to note the rescue of 15 captives who were held by revolutionaries Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia (FARC) in her native Colombia, releasing a statement on the day Betancourt was freed:
It’s a historic day for all of us, for this country that has suffered a lot. What a proud day to be Colombian!”
On Wednesday, July 16, Shakira met the former Colombian presidential candidate at the Hotel Meurice in Paris. The two went sightseeing accompanied by Ingrid’s son.
