We have only a few more hours to wait now until the World Cup 2014 opening ceremony and everybody involved is getting very excited for the greatest sporting event on Earth. While the players have been preparing for the tournament for a few weeks now, the stars who will perform at the opening ceremony have been preparing for much longer.
Brazilian beauty Claudia Leitte is the first Brazilian star to sing the official World Cup song, which she will perform along with Pitbull at the World Cup 2014 opening ceremony in Brazil tonight. Claudia has spoken about landing the gig and has admitted that she is very honoured to have been chosen to do it.
Leitte explained, "It’s funny but I didn’t know that I was the first Brazilian to sing the Official World Cup Song. I just found out. Honestly. But I’ve always said that I feel very honoured, thanks in the main to God and Pitbull. It all happened very quickly. He called me one day and said that FIFA already had the music and then he told me it had got the go-ahead. It was a gradual process and I had time to take it all in and enjoy every moment."
Claudia then went on to claim that, getting to perform the official World Cup song at the opening ceremony is as big a day as getting married, "It’s a very special day for me, like the day you get married, you know? That’s how it feels to me, that feeling of butterflies in your stomach. I always feel like that before shows, but this one feels just like your wedding day. That’s a good analogy, isn’t it?" added Leitte.
The World Cup 2014 opening ceremony is going to be huge and we are thoroughly looking forward to the next few weeks of action.
