Prior to the Hard Rock Cafe visit, Shakira visited with President Obama at the White House. As UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, this philanthropist/pop star had the ear of Barack Obama as she talked about her concerns regarding needy kids in Latin America, including the Caribbean.
During Shakira's day in D.C., she also stopped by the World Bank to send out a message that her goal of 300 million dollars for the development of childhood programs in Latin America and the Caribbean must be reached in the next two years.
There, the singer said, "If we want to build a better world, we have to give children the chance to improve their lives, no matter where they are born or how difficult their circumstances. By giving every child a fair start in life, we are improving our collective future," Shakira told the press.
