Shakira´s interview in the Spanish newspaper "El Mundo"
http://www.elmundo.es/elmundo/2009/01/18/cultura/1232276257.html

Shakira: "I hope that some many Hispanic children would think that they too can become President¨.

1. Why she decided to publicly support Obama,

When Obama was born there were still schools in some parts of the United States that didn't accept African American children. Fast forward two decades and the most powerful man on the planet is an African American. This is a triumph of human evolution. It's a message of optimism and tolerance that will reverberate throughout the world penetrating millions of minds. The triumph of Obama is without a doubt a cause for celebration for all.

2. How she met him:

I haven't met him yet but we've exchanged very positive words.

3. What it means to participate in the swearing in,

It's an honor to be invited by the Presidential Inauguration Committee and the President-elect to participate in these official ceremonies.

The swearing in of Obama is a triumph for all minorities, african americans, Latinos, Arabs, Asians, and so many other communities who live in this country and by way of their daily work make America the great power that it is. I hope that the triumph of Obama serves to let all the children of the world know that they have the same rights and that they can aspire to any level of success that they wish. God willing many hispanic children are now thinking today that they want to be president when they grow up when before today that was difficult to imagine.

4. What songs she'll sing

Songs that are hymns of happiness and optimism. One is called The Bright Side of the Road, and the other with Stevie Wonder who is one of the most widely-respected musicians in the country and definitely a part of a group of fundamental people who contributed to the progress of this country along with Martin Luther King and many others.

5. What she hopes for from Obama's presidency

Like the beginning of all new phases, one is more concerned with the wishes of what we want to improve than objective analysis. But among the things that I like about Obama I would say that he seems by all counts committed to education, environmental care, and prioritizes a dialogue to resolve or avoid conflict.

6. What she hopes will change in the relationship between the US and Latin America during his term,

I think that our millions of Latino brothers who live in the United States are doing a lot for Latin America. Not simply with the money that they send home every month to their families there but also because they are helping to place Latin America on the political agenda of this country.

We are a booming, hardworking, and increasingly committed community. This country wouldn't function without the Latino community. Obama wouldn't be president without their support.

I hope that all these factors translate into our president lending the attention that our community and Latin America deserve.

As such I am thrilled to be part of this official ceremony That this guest wants to say that there are people who understand the weight of the community that i'll be representing. A community that I am sure sooner or later, in a not-so-far-off future, will have among them a future president of the United States.

Shakira: 'Ojalá que muchos niños hispanos piensen que quieren ser presidentes'

Shakira participa este fin de semana en las celebraciones en Washington por la toma de posesión de Obama. La cantante colombiana es junto a Bono, el líder de U2, la única artista no estadounidense que actúa en la fiesta. Antes de subirse al escenario, nos contesta unas preguntas sobre el nuevo inquilino de la Casa Blanca.

Pregunta.- ¿Qué significa el triunfo de Obama?

Respuesta.- Cuando Obama nació todavía había escuelas en algunos lugares de EEUU que no aceptaban niños afroamericanos. Un par de décadas más tarde, el hombre más poderoso del planeta es un afroamericano. Esto es un triunfo de la evolución humana. Es un mensaje de optimismo y tolerancia que recorrerá el mundo penetrando millones de mentes. El triunfo de Obama es sin duda un motivo de festejo para todos.

P.- ¿Qué sensaciones le causa estar invitada a esta ceremonia?

R.- Es un honor estar invitada por el comité organizador y el presidente electo a estos actos. La asunción de Obama es un triunfo de todas las minorías, afroamericanas, latinas, árabes, asiáticas y tantas comunidades que viven es este país y desde el trabajo diario hacen que América sea la gran potencia que es. Espero que el triunfo de Obama sirva para que todos los niños del mundo sepan que tienen los mismos derechos y que pueden aspirar tan alto como lo desean. Ojalá que muchos niños hispanos estén pensando hoy que quieren ser presidentes cuando sean grandes, algo que antes era difícil de imaginar.

P.- ¿Espera que cambien las relaciones de América latina con el nuevo gobierno?

R.- Creo que nuestros millones de hermanos latinos que viven en EEUU están haciendo mucho por Latinoamérica. No sólo con el dinero que envían todos los meses a sus familiares en la región sino porque están ayudando a colocar a América Latina en la agenda política de este país. Somos una comunidad pujante, trabajadora y cada vez más comprometida. Este país no funcionaria sin la comunidad latina. Obama no sería presidente sin el apoyo latino.

Espero que todo esto logre que este nuevo presidente enfoque la atención que merece nuestra comunidad y América Latina. Por eso estoy feliz de ser parte de esta ceremonia oficial. Que esté invitada quiere decir que hay gente que comprende el peso de la comunidad que estaré representando. Una comunidad que estoy segura de que más tarde o más temprano, en un futuro no muy lejano, tendrá entre los suyos a un presidente de EEUU.

P.- ¿Qué espera de la presidencia de Obama?

R.- Como toda nueva etapa que comienza, uno se centra más en los deseos de lo que queremos que mejore más que por el análisis objetivo. Pero, entre las cosas que me gustan de Obama, te diría que parece ser un hombre comprometido con la educación, con el cuidado del medio ambiente y con priorizar el diálogo para solucionar o evitar los conflictos.

P.- Usted es junto a Bono la única artista no estadounidense invitada. Además, el mismo Obama escribió una carta diciendo que estaba orgulloso de contar con el apoyo de alguien como usted. ¿Qué le hace sentir todo esto?

R.- Me hace sentir orgullo por mi comunidad, por lo que los latinos representamos hoy en este país.
Shakira participará en "We are The One: The Obama Inaugural Celebration At The Lincoln Memorial" Retransmisión en vivo en HBO el Domingo 18 de Enero a las 2:30 PM ET / 11:30 AM PT. Repeticiones del evento a las 7 PM ET/PT & 11:30 AM P

http://www.pic2009.org/pressroom/entry/initial_talent_line-up_confirmed_for_lincoln_memorial_event/

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Presidential Inaugural Committee (PIC) is pleased to announce the producers and initial talent lineup for WE ARE ONE: THE OBAMA INAUGURAL CELEBRATION AT THE LINCOLN MEMORIAL, the Opening Celebration for the 56th Presidential Inaugural, to be presented exclusively by HBO on Sunday, January 18 (7:00-9:00 p.m. ET/PT). The event will be free and open to the public, kicking off the most open and accessible Inauguration in history.

The special will be executive produced by George Stevens, Jr. (The Kennedy Center Honors), and produced by Don Mischer (Olympic Ceremonies) who will also direct the special, and Michael Stevens (The American Film Institute Salutes) who is also writing the special, and will be a production of The Stevens Company in association with Don Mischer Productions.

Musical performers scheduled for the event include Beyonce, Mary J. Blige, Bono, Garth Brooks, Sheryl Crow, Renee Fleming, Josh Groban, Herbie Hancock, Heather Headley, John Legend, Jennifer Nettles, John Mellencamp, Usher Raymond IV, Shakira, Bruce Springsteen, James Taylor, will.i.am, and Stevie Wonder. Among those reading historical passages will be Jamie Foxx, Martin Luther King III, Queen Latifah and Denzel Washington. The Rt. Reverend V. Gene Robinson will give the invocation. Rob Mathes will be the music director and arranger for the backing band, which will support all of the artists. Additional performers will be announced as they are confirmed.

“Our intention is to root the event in history, celebrating the moments when our nation has united to face great challenges and prevail,“ observed George Stevens, Jr. “We will combine historical readings by prominent actors with music from an array of the greatest stars of today.“

“This is a great opportunity to capture an historic event in a very meaningful setting,“ noted Don Mischer. “We will have the statue of Abraham Lincoln looking down on our stage and a crowd of hundreds of thousands of people lining the mall—a tableau any director would relish.“

“We have found that the great artists are eager to take part and each one is working with us to find music that expresses the optimism and hope that people bring to the Obama inauguration,“ said Michael Stevens.

Televised to the nation, the Opening Celebration will be a declaration of common purpose and new beginnings. The Sunday afternoon performance will be grounded in history and brought to life with entertainment that relates to the themes that shaped Barack Obama and which will be the hallmarks of his administration.

HBO will televise the event on an open signal, working with all of its distributors to allow Americans across the country with access to cable, telcos or satellite television to join in the Opening Celebration for free.

The 56th Inauguration promises to be the most inclusive in history, and the Opening Celebration is one of a series of inaugural events that reflect that commitment. On Saturday, the President-elect, Vice President-elect and their families will journey to the nation’s capital via train, holding events that are free and open to the public along the way. They will be joined by a group of everyday Americans they met along their road to the White House. On January 19th, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, President-elect Obama will call on all Americans to make an ongoing commitment to serve their communities and their country. A new website, USAservice.org, makes it easy for Americans to organize service events or find existing events to participate in. To date, nearly 5,000 events have been organized across the country. That evening, Michelle Obama, Dr. Jill Biden, and their families will host a free “Kids’ Inaugural” concert to honor military families, broadcast live on the Disney Channel and Radio Disney.

This spirit of openness will continue on Inauguration Day, when, for the first time in history, the entire length of the National Mall will be open to the public for the swearing in ceremony. Local D.C. students have also been given the chance to receive tickets in front of the White House for the Inaugural Parade for themselves and their family members based on the submission of essays answering the question, “How can I contribute to my neighborhood through community service?“

On the evening of Inauguration Day, the first ball that President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama will attend will be the first-ever Neighborhood Inaugural Ball. The ball will be broadcast live on ABC and over the Internet, bringing together neighborhoods across the country in the spirit of unity and celebration.

The sum of these public events is an Inauguration that allows more Americans than ever before to come together as one nation and one people, united in our resolve to tackle our greatest common challenges and move this country forward together.
