Posted on: March 19, 2010

Peace icon Mahatma Gandhi seems to be acclaimed recording artist Shakira”s favorite.

In the official statement by her on receiving medal of honor from International Labor Organization (ILO) for her work promoting social justice recently in Geneva (Switzerland), Shakira, 33, pointed out: Mahatma Gandhi said – “Be the change you want to see in the world”.

“It”s not too late to keep our promise to our children, but we must act now. Together, we can make education and decent work for all a reality”, Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll added.

Her website says: She finished her acceptance speech by quoting some wise words from Gandhi which have become her personal motto: “Be the change that you want to see in the world.”

Gandhi was the only world leader quoted in singer-songwriter-musician-record producer-dancer-philanthropist Shakira”s statement, who was born and raised in Colombia. Grammy award winner and Golden Globe nominated Shakira (Love in the Time of Cholera) has sold about 50 million albums worldwide.
