Repping the Region

Colombian superstars, Juanes (aka Juan Esteban Aristizábal Vásquez) and Shakira (Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll) have been selected to sing at the inauguration of the 2010 World Cup this year. The only singers chosen from Latin America will accompany Alicia Keys, Black Eyed Peas and Amadou & Miriam. While this gives Colombia an excellent opportunity to showcase it's cultural diplomacy on a world stage, I also think that it may have come as a consolation prize due to the fact that Colombia did not make the qualifying rounds for World Cup this year.

However, I should add that Colombia's Women's Selection recently qualified for the World Cup in Germany, to be later this year, congrats ladies!
