A group of Oxford University students are on their way to stardom after their a cappella cover of a Shakira hit went viral – when it was tweeted by the pop star herself.
The choir – called Out Of The Blue – has racked up nearly 700,000 views after their debut music video for Hips Don’t Lie was posted on YouTube.
The short clip features 15 students wearing suits and shaking their hips to the tune in the historic grounds of the university.
They have now gone viral after Shakira heard about the video and tweeted a link to her 26 million followers and a message to the boys.
She wrote: ‘Hey @ootboxford, we LOVE you’re a capella Shak medly!’
Club president Josh Barr, 20, who studies English Literature, said: ‘We thought it was a really iconic and classic song.
‘For our first charity single, we wanted to pick a song that everybody recognises, but would also be fun.
