The 37—year—old singer will be singing ‘La La La’ at the Maracana stadium.
Colombian pop star Shakira is set to perform at this year’s FIFA World Cup closing ceremony, which takes place just before the final in Rio de Janeiro on July 13.
The 37—year—old singer will be singing ‘La La La’ at the Maracana stadium, reported BBC online.
It is her third consecutive appearance at a World Cup closing ceremony, after performing in South Africa in 2010 and in Germany in 2006.
Shakira, whose home team Colombia will face Brazil in the quarter—finals, says she is “thrilled” to be performing.
“I have an intricate relationship with football for obvious reasons, and I truly understand what the World Cup means to so many people — myself included,” the singer said in a statement.
“The fans have shown the most incredible support for this song and I can’t wait to perform it for them,” she added.
