'Colombia's Got Talent' Contestant Jonathan Trujillo Impersonates Shakira, Searches For Missing Father (VIDEO)

Sounds like Shakira, right?

That's what the judges of "Colombia's Got Talent" thought as well. The Shakira imitator could even have been Shakira herself -- well, at least until the hooded singer revealed herself to be a him.

But stranger than that, is the surprising reason for this young man's participation in the national, televised talent show in the first place -- well, besides wanting to be a famous singer.

Trujillo's father disappeared a year ago and the family has not heard from him since. The father was the 'motor' who encouraged his son's pursuit of singing, he told a Spanish-language newspaper in Colombia.

The family does not know what happened to the father, but Trujillo is convinced that between being on TV and showing his father's photo, and possibly winning the show's cash prize, he fully expects to find him.

See the judges' reaction to Colombian impersonator Jonathan Trujillo's uncanny resemblance in the video above, and let us know your thoughts below. Is Jonathan Trujillo the best Shakira impersonator you've ever heard?
