Shakira nominated for Prince Of Asturias Concord award

By Naila Missous, Bacelona

Colombian singer Shakira has been nominated for a Prince of Asturias Concord award for her humanitarian and voluntary work.

The Prince of Asturias Concord award are a series of prestigious annual prizes awarded by the Prince of Asturias Foundation in Spain.

The nomination has come in recognition of her involvement with the Barefoot Foundation, Latin Americans in Solidarity (ALAS) and as a goodwill ambassador for UNICEF.

Swapping the stage for classroom as she so often does.

The Barefoot Foundation was set up by Shakira when she was only 18 years old as a means of allowing less privileged children in Colombia access to an education so that they would have a more promising future. It also focuses on providing education to children in other developing nations who would otherwise go without.

The award has been issued since 1986 to an individual, institution or group of people. It is said to be awarded to those “whose work has significantly contributed to fostering peace, the defence of human rights, freedom, solidarity, the safeguarding of heritage, or, in general, the progress of humanity.”

Shakira has received awards for her humanitarian work in the past, including a United Nations Medal for her work as a UNICEF goodwill ambassador.

If Shakira prevails, this will be the first time someone in the entertainment industry and of such celebrity calibre will have won this prestigious award.

The awards ceremony takes place in Oviedo, the capital of the northern Spanish province of Asturias.
