Shakira praises Coldplay's Chris Martin: 'His voice is so emotive and honest'

'Hips Don't Lie' beauty Shakira has revealed that Coldplay's frontman Chris Martin has one of her favourite voices to listen to in music. 

She explained that she really loves the 'Princess Of China' star's vocals and has great admiration for his talent: "Chris Martin has one of my favorite male voices of all time - so emotive and incredibly honest."

Shakira then went on to praise female singers Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald, describing both as timeless and classic: "Billie Holiday has one of the most timeless voices out there and is always something that puts me in a tranquil mood."

"I think although the lyrics are probably meant in a romantic context, for me there are some that make sense coming from a mother to her child as well - the idea of surrendering all of oneself to a love bigger than the individual. Ella Fitzgerald is another classic voice that has a soothing quality. Perfect to listen to at the end of a long day."
