Shakira Named Harvard Foundation's Artist of the Year

Shakira Named Harvard Foundation's Artist of the Year

She’s one of the hardest working musicians out there, and the Harvard Foundation is planning on recognizing Shakira for her efforts.

According to reports, the Harvard Foundation has named the “She Wolf” singer as the 2011 Artist of the Year.

Shakira will receive “the Foundation’s most prestigious medal” in recognition of her music and charity work at the annual Cultural Rhythms festival - which is held at Sander Theater at Harvard in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

The foundation’s director S. Allen Counter said that the Colombian beauty was chosen to receive the accolade this year because of her musical contributions to culture and her work helping children in impoverished areas such as Haiti.

The ceremony is set to take place on February 26.
