Shakira knew Gabriel Garcia Marquez personally and she shared an emotional message for him on social media.
“Dear Gabo, one time you said that life is not the one that you live, instead it’s the one that you remember and how you remember it to share it…We remember your life, dear Gabo, like a one-and-only gift, and the most original of stories. It’s difficult to say goodbye to you, since you have given us so much! You will stay forever with me and with all of those that love and admire you. Shak”
