RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — Colombian pop star Shakira and hip hop artist Wyclef Jean will perform at the World Cup’s closing ceremony in Brazil.

Shakira will be at the World Cup for the third time and sing her “La la la (Brazil 2014)” with Brazil’s Carlinhos Brown ahead of the July 13 final at Rio de Janeiro’s Maracana Stadium.

Wyclef, guitarist Santana and Alexandre Pires will combine on Dar Um Jeito, the main theme song for the World Cup.

Announcing the lineup, FIFA also said Brazilian singer-songwriter Ivete Sangalo “will bring a distinctive local flavor to the show” with a medley of well-known Brazilian numbers and will be joined by Pires.

Illinois has lagged the country as a whole in its recovery from recession, and the state's unemployment rate has been among the worst in the country for months. Thursday's report provides signs that Illinois may be starting to catch up. Construction companies added 3,500 jobs in June, an increase of 1.8 percent. (AP Photo/Seth Perlman)
