Colombian superstar will be joined by Wyclef Jean, Carlos Santana and Brazilian singer Ivete Sangalo at 10:30 a.m. PT
Shortly before the final match of the 2014 FIFA World Cup kicks off Sunday, Colombian singer Shakira will rock the crowd at the star-studded closing ceremony in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
The diva and judge on NBC’s “The Voice” will perform the tournament’s theme song “La la la (Brazil 2014).” She’ll be joined by Haitian hip-hop star Wyclef Jean, Mexican-American guitarist Carlos Santana, Brazilian singer Ivete Sangalo and a samba school during an 18-minute show.
The performances will be “set to a soundtrack of samba music, incorporating a cast of 400 people,” according to FIFA.com.
Shakira took a break from rehearsing Sunday morning and tweeted, “Just TWO HOURS until the #WorldCup Closing Ceremony, feat Shak performing La La La (Brazil 2014)!
Santana also tweeted that he would be performing “Dar um Jeito (We Will Find A Way).”
The closing ceremony gets underway at 10:30 a.m. PT, an hour and a half before the final match between Germany and Argentina.
