Colombian star Shakira sings to the crowd at the Unesco Gala 2005 in Neuss, Germany. The date was November 12 of 2005, the year that Shakira turned 28. Shakira's lip gloss is, as always, impeccable. "Unesco" is not another one-named singer; it's an acronym for the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization. The group "seeks to build peace through international cooperation" in those fields.
