Shakira is officially the first Colombian artist to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame!
The singer has been recording albums in her native country since the early 1990s, but she hit it big in America with the Latin Grammy-winning single, "Wherever, Whenever".
The sexy Latina said in a speech on Tuesday after receiving her star:
- "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."
The Colombian beauty already has two Grammys under her belt, and her latest album, "Sale el Sol", is up for a Latin Grammy this year.
Shakira concluded before posing with her star, "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.'"
