You're about to see and hear Shakira like you've never heard before and it's all thanks to Out of the Blue: a brilliant a cappella group who may be the most fabulous people in the Oxford area. Think of them as the cool version of Glee's Warblers, but these boys have much better voices and their hips don't lie. (Seriously, look at their hips.) While they may dance like pissed uncles at a wedding, this is an amazing mash-up of Shakira songs, particularly around 'Whenever, Wherever' and 'Waka Waka'.
Since they uploaded the song earlier this week, they've managed to gather up around 250,000 views and it keeps growing. The proceeds from their Shakira medley go to the Helen and Douglas House, which is the world's first children's hospice. You can buy the song via their BandCamp page.
