La cantante colombiana Shakira recibió el sábado la insignia de Caballero de la Orden de las Artes y las Letras francesas dentro de uno de los actos inaugurales de la cuatrigésima sexta edición del Mercado Internacional del Disco y de la Publicidad Musical en Cannes, Francia.

Acompañada por sus padres, que no querían perderse este importante momento, la artista se declaró “feliz” por recibir “uno de los honores más altos en las artes y las letras, pues viene de un país como Francia, que tiene una herencia cultural tan importante.

“Es uno de los momentos que más honrada me ha hecho sentir en mi carrera”, dijo la intérprete de “La Tortura” y “Suerte”.

El ministro de Cultura galo, Frédéric Miterrand, fue el encargado de otorgarle esta distinción. Entre gritos de “Shakira, ¡querida!”, el mandatario presentó a la cantante como un “símbolo de la cultura a nivel planetario”, que gracias a su “generosidad y encanto” es capaz de hacer partícipe a la gente de su “jovialidad”.

Miterrand comparó a Shakira con otras estrellas latinas como Gloria Estefan o Jennifer López y, yendo más allá del discurso meramente político, destacó “su combinación de voz, latinidad, determinación y de una ardiente femeneidad”.

Shakira, respondió al gesto del país galo expresando en francés la “conexión especial” que siente con este pueblo, por lo que, añadió, su corazón “también es francés”.

Justo hace un año, en este mismo lugar, Shakira se convirtió junto a los Black Eyed Peas en la gran triunfadora de los premios musicales NRJ.

Miterrand, que inauguró el Midem 2012, distinguió en la misma ceremonia a su compatriota Patricia Kaas con el título de Oficial de la Orden de las Artes y las Letras, así como al músico Brian Ferry, ausente en el acto.

Shakira Named Knight of the Order of Arts and Letters in France

Colombian singer Shakira was decorated on Saturday as a Knight of the Order of Arts and Letters during one of the inaugural ceremonies of the 46th edition of the International Disc Market and Musical Publishing event, or Midem, in Cannes.

Accompanied by her parents who would not miss the occasion, the artist said she was “happy” to receive “one of the highest honors in arts and letters, since it comes from a country like France, which has such an important cultural heritage.”

“This moment that has made me feel the most honored in my career,” the singer of “La Tortura” (Torture) and “Suerte” (Luck) said in a statement.

French Culture Minister Frederic Mitterrand was on hand to give her the award. Amid cries of “Shakira, beloved!” he pinned the medal on her as a “symbol of culture at a planetary level,” and said that thanks to her “generosity and charm” she lets people share her “joy.”

Mitterrand compared Shakira to other Latin stars like Gloria Estefan and Jennifer Lopez, and, going even further, pointed up “her combination of voice, Latin style, determination and a passionate femininity.”

Shakira, “so honored by the award,” answered France’s gesture with a mention in French of the “special connection” she feels with this country, to the extent that her heart “is also French.”

Just one year ago in this same place, Shakira became, together with the Black Eyed Peas, the big winner of the NRJ musical awards, as voted by listeners of that popular French radio station, taking home the prizes for best international artist and best international song of 2010 for the World Cup theme “Waka Waka.”

Mitterrand, who inaugurated Midem 2012 Saturday morning, honored at the same ceremony his compatriot Patricia Kaas with the title of Official of the Order of Arts and Letters, as well as British musician Brian Ferry, who was not present to receive the honor.
