Shakira given Latin Grammy honour

Shakira has been honoured as the 2011 Latin Recording Academy person of the year in Las Vegas.

The 34-year-old Colombian singer was recognised at a tribute dinner attended by some of Latin music's biggest stars, including Venezuelan crooner Franco De Vita, Mexican rocker Alejandra Guzman and salsa legend Gilberto Santa Rosa.

Shakira has sold more than 60 million albums in Spanish and English and is the youngest person to receive the Latin Recording Academy's most prestigious award. Previous honourees include Carlos Santana, Gloria Estefan and Ricky Martin.

She walked the red carpet outside the event in a Grecian gown, with her blonde hair gathered to the side in a braid.

"This is one of the most important moments of my life," she said. "I'm happy. I'm honoured. I'm humbled."

The celebrity gala comes amid a red-letter week for Shakira, who was given her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Los Angeles on Tuesday. The Hips Don't Lie singer is also up for three awards, including album of the year, at the 12th Annual Latin Grammy Awards tonight (Thursday) in Las Vegas.

Shakira, who recently wrapped up her international tour for her Sale el Sol album, said it has been a "year of passion".

"I've been able to harvest the efforts of the past," she said.

The stars who walked the red carpet before the tribute dinner applauded Shakira for making the leap from Latin American super star to mainstream fame.

Alejandra said she was envious of Shakira's prominence, but said the acclaim was well-deserved, noting Skakira's lyrical and vocal talents. "All of us have dreams to be that big," she added.
