Chris Martin showed off his Spanish skills while performing with Shakira at the Global Citizen Festival in Hamburg, Germany, on Thursday night.
The Colombian singer and Coldplay performed her hits “Chantaje” and “Me Enamoré” from her latest album “El Dorado”.
In the original version of the song, the urban singer Maluma accompanies Shakira in “Chantaje”. But Chris Martin surprised his fans at last night’s event when they came together to create pure magic.
Chris Martin happens to be the creative director for the festival, and last month he showed his excitement for Shakira’s last-minute inclusion in the bill of performers in the band’s official Instagram account, singing and dancing to the beat of her songs.
The Global Citizen Festival is an annual music festival started in 2012. Part of this charity event’s mission is to end extreme poverty.
The organizers of the Global Citizen Festival have been trying for the last couple years to make the event global by live-streaming the concert in public locations.
And now, Shakira and Chris Martin’s duet has made the festival viral!
