The Colombian singer Shakira had to face a totally adverse comment at the beginning of her career: "You have the voice of a rooster." This was the expression that the music teacher Jesús López used to refer to the Barranquillera when she was just beginning to sing.
He even turned her down to participate in a school choir. Fortunately, none of this demotivated the Girl like me interpreter, who is now a true representative of Latin music. They contacted the teacher who said Shakira had a "rooster voice."
The media undertook the task of finding this man, who with her words could have truncated the career of an artist of international stature. Some witnesses even claim that when Shakira started winning trophies, she took them to the same teacher.
"Look how far I have come with my rooster voice," the 44-year-old singer insisted, according to witnesses who shared with her at that time. When they reached him, he didn't want to talk about Shakira at all.
