    Choice vs. chosen works the same in English as in Spanish--if you say "was ____" you have to use the participle. (Elegir-->elegido) It's a passive construction.

    Hm, "involved with" might be good if we were talking about her collaborating with another singer, but I think the corrections by nieva are the best for what daiza29 wants to say - "A few years later, Shakira became the most famous singer in Latin America ...."

    Wait, was Shakira dating (estaba enamorada) the most famous singer in Latinoamerica, or had she herself become (se hizo) the most famous singer? I don't know her history that well; my correction assumes it was she herself who was famous.

    Hola daiza

    Nieva es correcto. By "into" I thought you wanted to say she was in a new relationship (novio). But I see now you wanted to say "she became the most famous singer...".
