6. Shakira • February 2, 1977
Sony has said Shakira is the highest selling Colombian artist of all time. Her influence is far-reaching—on July 18, 2014 she became the first person to reach 1 million Likes on Facebook. She’s a tireless supporter of education for underprivileged children and founded her own charity Pies Descalzos in 1997. She and husband Gerard Piqué just welcomed a new Aquarian into their fold with the birth of their second baby boy on January 29.
