Shakira: World Cup Closer

Posted Wednesday July 7, 2010 9:04 AM GMT

She’s gearing up for the closing ceremony of the 2010 World Cup soccer tournament, and Shakira is ready to sing and dance for fans from all over the world.

The massive event, scheduled to take place on July 11th, two hours prior to the final game at Soccer City, will be punctuated by the “Hips Don’t Lie” singer’s rendition of “Waka Waka (This Time for Africa).”

Committee Spokesman Jermaine Craig said the festivities will be “more youthful and a bit more technologically advanced” than the opening ceremony.

He also noted that the gig will feature “nice lighting effects and special effects,” a fitting end to a month of explosive soccer playing.
