At a young age, her father took
her to a local Middle Eastern restaurant, where Shakira
first heard the doumbek, a traditional Arabic drum used in
Arabic music and which typically accompanied belly dancing.
Before she knew it, Shakira was dancing on the table as
restaurant patrons responded by clapping enthusiastically.
It was then that Shakira said she knew she wanted to be a
performer. She enjoyed singing for schoolmates and
teachers (and even the nuns) at her Catholic school but in
the second grade was rejected for the school choir because
her vibrato was too strong.
