Shakira's Parents Moved Watching Her Perform 'Waka, Waka'
Like it was her first school recital or even her big stage debut – Shakira's parents could not contain their tears of joy and emotion as the Colombian singer performed "Waka, Waka," the official anthem of the World Cup in South Africa.
William and Nidia del Carmen Merbarack enjoyed one more of their daughter's career hits, this time opening for the soccer tournament. All the way from their room, Shakira's parents supported and cheered on their idol, which is not surprising considering that the Colombian sensation herself has declared them her number one fans.
And precisely in gratitude of their support and thrill they felt seeing her perform even though they have accompanied her all over the world to hundreds of concerts, Shakira shared this photo of her parents on her Twitter page.
Holding her face in her hands, Shakira's mother could not hold back tears as she saw her daughter on TV singing to thousands and thousands of spectators and imagining the millions of viewers watching from home. Meanwhile the singer's father did not hide his proud face watching her perform.
Even though on this occasion neither William nor Nidia accompanied their daughter to South Africa, they are planning to travel for the World Cup closing where Shakira will be in charge of singing the tournament's official anthem that has caused uproar from soccer fans, mostly because of the very feminine dance attached to the song, however two days after tournament has begun no one can resist humming along to 'Waka, Waka'.
