Coldplay Teams Up With Shakira for Epic Performances at Global Citizen Festival

Although they made an unlikely combination, the band and the Latin singer managed to steal the night with their dreamy and powerful performances.

AceShowbiz - There was an unexpected collaboration during Global Citizen Festival in Hamburg, Germany on Thursday, July 6. %cColdplay% brought out Latin superstar %cShakira% during their set, and fans couldn't be more awed. Kicking off Coldplay's set, the band's lead singer %cChris Martin% said about trying something new which "could be a disaster, but it could be amazing" before inviting Shakira to join him onstage to perform one of Coldplay's hit songs, "Yellow".

Right after performing the ballad, Shakira and Chris belted out an acoustic version of the songstress' song "Chantaje". Sporting dark jeans and a blue T-shirt, Chris smoothly delivered the Spanish verses, replacing %cMaluma%'s voice on the song.

Besides "Chantaje", the duo performed Shakira's new single titled "Me Enamore". Chris assisted the Latin pop star by strumming a guitar while rhyming some lines in between the song. They later concluded their set with a powerful, show-stopping performance of "Sky Full of Stars".

Other performers at the festival included %cPharrell Williams% and %cEllie Goulding%. The event was held as a musical rally to "achieve concrete commitments from leaders and advocates across the world towards some of the greatest global issues of our time, including the education deficit, global health security, gender equality and the refugee crisis," organizers said in a statement. Speakers on the night included Canada's prime minister Justin Trudeau and Norway's prime minister Erna Solberg.
