Shakira Visits With President Obama At White House

President Barack Obama and pop superstar Shakira are talking about U.S. policy toward children.

Obama and the Colombian entertainer met briefly Monday at the White House after she had meetings with staff from the National Security Council and the Domestic Policy Council to talk about early childhood development.

A White House official, speaking only on condition of anonymity because the meeting was not on the president’s public schedule, says Shakira stopped by to say hello privately to Obama when the meetings ended.

Shakira is a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador and has been an advocate for children in poverty.
