Important moment for Latino community in America: Shakira

Speaking about being the first Latin performers at the Super Bowl, Lopez said: "I think it's a very important moment for our community, for the Latino community in this country."
"The Super Bowl is a very American event, as American as it can get. It will also be a reminder of the heritage of this country, which is one of diversity, and that's what we will be celebrating on Sunday," added Shakira who would be turning 43 on the Super Bowl Sunday.
