Colombian star Shakira will spend Valentines Day not with her boyfriend, but serenading basketball fans at the American NBA All-Star game.
Over 80,000 spectators will hear the Barranquilla-born singer perform hits including “She Wolf” and “Give It Up To Me,” both tracks from her new album “She Wolf.”
The 33-year-old pop star and philanthropist will have to cancel any plans to spend Valentines Day with her boyfriend, Antonio de la Rua, son of former Argentine President Fernando de la Rua. Maybe that will persuade him to set a date – the couple have been together for nearly ten years now, and engaged for eight, but have not as yet announced any imminent plans to marry.
Shakira will share the NBA stage with the singers Alicia Keys and Usher, in front of the biggest crowd ever to attend a basketball game.
