First let me comment about the ones below!!

I think I don't know any singers from Uruguay.. I liked Natalia song a lot :P From Turkey.. I know some songs that friends sent to me, for example, by Rafael el Roman (i think this is the name)... From Algeria I know Zinedine Zidan hehehe who doesn't know him? :P But I thought he was French.. a famous Algerian here is the singer Etienne Daho http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uN6xQWOxwKE at least this song was famous here!! From Netherlands I think I don't know anyone :S

Now about Brazil… let me think XD

He isnt not an Algerian, but he spent his childhood in Algeria, now he is in France…

Zindin Zidan or Zizou was an Algerian player, his parents are Algerian, but they were living in France… 

I am very proud of him, his native town is near me, he comes severeal times

soon he will be traning the Algerian team… 

Oh, I didn't know that… so maybe he considers himself as an argelian more than a french!

 

dont forget, he is a Muslim  and he converted Terry Henry, Rebbery who married to Algerian woman too, and also one another player I forgot his name… 

Humm I didn't know that either ;) From all football players I just know Kaká's religion!! Anyway it's nice… I know what it means for you!
