Shakira partners with boyfriend for charity mission

Shakira has teamed up with her boyfriend Gerard Pique's Spanish soccer team for a new charity mission.

The Colombian singer's Barefoot Foundation has joined forces with Pique's club, FC Barcelona, in an effort to fund and better support YMCA educational programmes for Hispanic youths in Miami, Florida.

Announcing the partnership at a local school, the Hips Don't Lie hitmaker said, "Hispanics in the United States have everything to gain. We have the talent, we have the will. I truly think that with more education and more sports, we can achieve the unthinkable. We can have the ball on our side of the court."
