Shakira’s powerful moment at the Latin Grammys shows her strength and resilience, setting an inspiring example for her sons. Later on, the singer-songwriter, 46, walked off the stage straight to her sons. Admiring both their mom and her award, they also congratulated her with a sweet kiss on the cheek.
She also won Best Pop Song of the Year for Shakira: Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 53 — a collaborative track released in January with record producer Bizarrap. A year after announcing the end of her relationship with the sportsman, the superstar recalled how her dad flew ‘to Barcelona to console’ her as she was ‘consumed with sadness because of’ their separation.
‘While he was at Milan’s first communion, he was gravely injured in an accident. Everything happened at once. My home was falling apart,’ she told People en Español. She continued: ‘I was finding out through the press that I had been betrayed while my dad was in the ICU.’n She expressed feeling devastated that she couldn’t turn to dad, 91, for the advice she ‘needed so much.’
During the interview, Shakira went on to say: ‘The man I have loved the most in my life, my father, was leaving me when I needed him the most. I couldn’t talk to him, or go to my best friend for the advice I needed so much.’ At the awards, Shakira — who received seven nominations across four categories at the star-studded awards ceremony — donned two dresses and also took the stage for a performance at the annual Latin Grammy Awards.
