Joining fellow Latin stars Ricky Martin and Christina Aguilera on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Shakira became the first Colombian artist to receive a star on the iconic street! 

As reported by Reuters, as she unveiled her star, Shakira said, "I would like to dedicate this to the Latin community in the U.S., a community that restlessly works and dreams and dreams and works everyday to make this a better country."
She added, "When I was seven years-old, I came to Los Angeles for the first time and I passed by the Walk of Fame with my mother. I remember that my mom told me, 'Shaki, one day you are going to have your name on this place.'" 
Perhaps best known for her single, "Whenever, Wherever," Shakira has won two Grammy Awards and was nominated for her collaborations with Beyonce on the single "Beautiful Liar" and Wyclef Jean on "Hips Don't Lie."
