British pop star Natasha Bedingfield learned to sing in both Swahili and Filipino so she could record her new single in six different languages.
The singer has created several different versions of her new festive track Shake Up Christmas for release around the world, and she admits she relished the challenge to record vocals in so many different dialects.
She tells Britain's Mail on Sunday, "I've recorded the single, Shake Up Christmas, in six languages and worked with dialect coaches. Singing in Swahili and Filipino were the most challenging but I loved every minute."
