Shakira had performed at the World Cup closing ceremony her World Cup anthem “La La La (Brazil 2014).” a reworked version of her song “Dare”

What is notable is that this is Shakira’s third consecutive appearance in the closing ceremony of a World Cup. The World Cup Final is the biggest sports thing possible. It happens once every four years and is watched by hundreds of millions; possibly billions. And every time it happens, Shakira performs. Shakira was wearing a playsuit made for her,especially for the performance by CharbelZoeCouture , a Lebanese born fashion designer who also designed Jennifer Lopez playsuit at the opening ceremony of the WOrld Cup 2014.

So proud of u Charbel Zoé El Khoury open the World Cup 2014 with @jlo and he end it with @shakira and yet to come
