FIFA will turn to a familiar face for its closing ceremony ahead of the July 13 final in Rio de Janeiro, as Shakira will perform for the third straight World Cup. She’ll take the stage with Brazil’s Carlinhos Brown to sing her “La la la (Brazil 2014).”
Wyclef Jean and Santana also will be on hand to perform “Dar Um Jeito,” the main theme song for the World Cup.
Shakira, whose home team Colombia will face Brazil in the quarter-finals, said she was “thrilled” to be performing.
“I have an intricate relationship with football for obvious reasons, and I truly understand what the World Cup means to so many people, myself included,” the singer said in a statement.
“The fans have shown the most incredible support for this song and I can’t wait to perform it for them.”
The 37-year-old singer, whose hits include Hips Don’t Lie and She Wolf, had a son with Spanish defender Gerard Pique last year.
