Shakira and Juanes singing together in Spain June 19, 2006

Those lucky spaniards…. Shakira and Junes on stage together is something never seen before. It is great to see Colombia’s two superstars there, as I always wondered if they were ever going to sing together.

You know, these are two of the people the I admire the most in the world. As a Colombian it is hard to be recognized outside of the country, having to oevercome all sorts of adversities, including stereotypes. It is only through hard work and dedication that these two artists have been able to conquer the world. Something that I admire, and very much look to imitate. They are showing the world that in COlombia we still have people who work hard, who are honest, who want peace in their country and in thew whole world….

Very few artists of today have done what Shakira has. She is recognized all over the world, and the same thing with Juanes, conquering Europe, and Asia. Apperently he is the biggest star in Japan right now…. I wonder why Juanes hasn’t got so much recognition in Canada. Is it because he doesn’t sing in English? Is this a proof that afterall Canadians are not as open minded as they say they are? In any way both of them have been able to put Colombia in the map, and be admired as proud Colombians. It is interesting how the Colombian soccer team did not qualify to the world cup, but Colombia’s representation in the tournament comes from Juanes and Shakira…. Juanes had a presentation during the ceremony to draw the first-round groups, and Shakira will sing prior to the final game…


I found a video of their sharing the stage… HERE
