shakira williams

I owe my success to my father. When I was young, I was rejected from the school choir and my dad was the one who gave me hope and told me not to give up as a singer. ‘Your voice is beautiful and you’ll see how one day everybody will notice it.’ He’s always been a dreamer. Maybe not a good business man but he’s an idealist that’s taught me a lot about life and the value of perseverance.
—  Shakira
