Today, MTV has launched the first of three exclusive “webisodes”, featuring superstar Shakira from her 2006 “Oral Fixation Tour.” The footage, available only on MTV.com, is a follow up to the “Dirty Little Secrets” contest, where one lucky fan accompanied Shakira across Europe, Latin America, and North America. The first segment includes footage from Barcelona, Spain, including one of Shakira’s many “Dirty Little Secret” reveals, an in-depth look at contest winner Rachel Newhouse, a behind-the-scenes look at the tour production, and a live performance of her smash hit “Hips Don’t Lie” featuring Wyclef Jean.
About the Contest:
Together, MTV and Latin superstar Shakira, launched the “Dirty Little Secrets” contest, giving one lucky fan the opportunity to go on her 2006 world tour as an official “fan correspondent.” MTV viewers submitted essays outlining why they were Shakira’s biggest fan and why they should be afforded such an opportunity. After narrowing down the search to just 10 finalists, and being interviewed by a judging panel of industry insiders, a winner was chosen – Rachel Newhouse from Chicago, IL.
Latin American superstar Shakira is the biggest crossover Latin female artist in the world. Her 2001 English release, Laundry Service went 13x platinum and her array of hits in both English and Spanish have garnered her 3 Latin Grammy’s. The rock influenced sultry songstress followed up her Spanish language summer release, Fijacion Oral vol. 1 with Oral Fixation vol. 2 recorded in English, featuring the hit single “Hips Don’t Lie.”
Rachel Newhouse, a 21-year old college graduate from North Park University, not only won a trip around the world with her favorite performer Shakira, but was also the lucky recipient of $25,000. Newhouse used her winnings to start a foundation called “Twelve Baskets for Armenia,” which helped construct a rehabilitation center for 233 disabled orphans. The project was for the Children’s Home of Kharberd, where she lived for 2-months as a volunteer in 2005.
The first “webisode” can be viewed starting today only on MTV.com!
