Latina singer, songwriter, musician, and a seven-time Latin Grammy winner, was honored at the 12th annual Tribute Gala in Las Vegas for her artistic and philanthropic contributions. Friends and notable artists saluted her with their own versions of her songs during the gala. That year, Shakira was up for three awards, including album of the year, a day later at the Latin Grammys. The 34-year-old Latina became the youngest person of the year to receive the tribute. Demonstrating her vocal ability with rock and roll, Latin and Arabic influences with her own original twist on belly dancing, she has become the second most successful female Latin singer after Gloria Estefan, having sold over 60 million albums worldwide according to Sony Music Entertainment.
