Football fans across the globe are waiting eagerly for the start of World Cup in Sao Paulo, Brazil on June 12 and even more is the wait for the opening ceremony with ‘Pitbull’. And for all J’Lo fans there is a little disappointment as she would not be joining the opening ceremony.
As per the initial plan, American rapper Pitbull, pop star Jennifer Lopez and Brazilian pop sensation Claudia Leitte were to perform the official world cup anthem ‘We Are One’ at the end of the ceremony. But as per the latest development, J’Lo has communicated with email that, “regretfully Jennifer Lopez will not be attending this year’s World Cup opening ceremonies.”
FIFA said in a news release that now, Cuban-American rapper Pitbull and Brazilian singer Claudia Leitte will sing the official tune “We Are One” before Brazil takes on Croatia at Thursday’s opening game in Sao Paulo.
According to show’s artistic director Daphne Cornez, the opening ceremony is a tribute to Brazil and its treasures while the main attraction of the event will be a central ‘living’ ball studded with more than 90,000 LED light clusters.
This edition of FIFA World Cup will witness a participation of 32 nations while 12 Brazilian cities are busy giving finishing touches to their preparations to host the matches. Eager to get a glance of the FIFA Anthem song, do watch its trailer on YouTube now!!
