If you can believe it, the 6th season of “The Voice” is set to be shot pretty soon and Shakira made great use of her time in the off season. Firstly, she gave birth to a new child so she’s got that to keep her busy. However, there were other children that kept the singer/judge busy as well.
Shakira has a foundation which helps fill and build schools in her home country Colombia. Shakira knows about giving back and what it’s like to live in poverty. As a child she recalled a time when her father lost his job and the family had to give up their air conditioner which at the time made life extremely uncomfortable given the heat.
However the star recalls that when this happened, her parents took her to a park where she observed orphans acting maniacally. Even crazy enough that they were sniffing glue. That made a lasting impression on Shakira and she’s tried to give back ever since.
