HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SHAKIRA!!!!!!!!!!


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



It's only a couple months until February 2nd, and you all know what that means...

... Shakira is going to turn 34!

For Shakira's 32nd and 33rd birthdays, I organized mass, world-wide projects asking fans across Shakiraholics, ShakiraMedia, and Shakira Rules forums, along with the Official Forum, to record themselves singing their traditional birthday tune, or the usual "Happy Birthday To You" song, in their native language. The results were smash hits, as I got tons of submissions in audio and video recordings, along with photos. Any audio recordings in the same language were even layered together for a chorus! The videos were sent to Shakira.

So as Shakira fans, we certainly want Shakira to have the happiest of 34th birthdays, especially this year with a new album and, of course, a new tour!

Here's what to do: Record yourself singing the traditional "Happy Birthday to You" song at the same pace as the tune in this video (sing along to it through headphones for best results). You can sing it in any language you wish, it can even be a traditional birthday song from your country instead, but only one submission per person! And of course, it's "Happy birthday, dear Shakira", or "Happy birthday, dear Shaki" for that part of the song, should you sing that tune.

You can also send a video of you singing your song, along with a brief message for Shakira. Photos of you with your Shakira collections or moments are also more than welcome.

Not a problem, but it's us the fans as a whole who make the magic! I'd love a submission in Arabic, I don't know if I've ever gotten one before. :(

As in what do I plan to do that it's so important? I'm doing the same thing I always do. It's important because Shakira is traveling around the world and will be in the middle of setting up the Pop Festival when she sees this, so it needs to be big enough that she really notices it in everything else going on with her!

You could sing, do a video, and send in a photo, yes, I meant no more than one of each per person. :daveloveshaki:

I can convert the file, yes. My only concern is getting low quality cell phone recordings with obscure video and audio formats.

You don't have to sing, messages only are fine. But assuming I get enough singing, I'm going to do a video montage so not everyone would be seen singing for too long anyways. Messages will remain intact, just keep them brief. :)

The difference is that this project is the one you guys have been submitting to for the past many years, and the one on the main site is Ramon's entirely unrelated project.
