Oxford University’s all-male a capella group is shaking their hips with a little help from Shakira to raise money for charity.

Members of Out of the Blue have recorded an a capella cover of Shakira’s smash hit “Hips Don’t Lie” to raise money for the Helen and Douglas House hospice.

The video has gone viral with a little help from the superstar singer herself — last week, she tweeted her support for the video. "Hey @ooboxford, we LOVE your a capella Shak medley! ¡Nos encanta este medley que han hecho!."

One of the students featured in the video, which is closing in on 3 million views, said Shakira’s support is what put the group on the map. "We couldn't believe we were tweeted by Shakira,” Joshua Barr said. “On the Facebook post she signed it off personally so we knew she had actually watched the video, which is amazing.”
