Shakira at 2001 GRAMMYs
GRAMMY Rewind: Shakira Wins Her First GRAMMY For Best Latin Pop Album In 2001
Below, watch the Colombian singer, rocking cascading blonde curls and a backless gold-and-earth-toned dress, accept the Best Latin Pop Album award for 2000's Shakira MTV Unplugged at the 43rd GRAMMY Awards.
"Everything I do…is dedicated to my country, Colombia. That in spite of our tough reality, we keep our spirit joyful and alive," Shakira said in her acceptance speech.
The live album was also nominated for Album Of The Year at the 1st Latin GRAMMY Awards in 2000, where she won her first two Latin GRAMMYs (for "Octavo Día" and "Ojos Así"). She received her first GRAMMY nomination at the 41st GRAMMY Awards, for her fourth album, Dónde Están los Ladrones?
