Gloria and Emilio Estefan to Create Autobiographical Musical
Hoping to bring their story of the American dream to Broadway, Gloria Estefan and her husband Emilio are teaming up with the Nederlander Organization to produce a new musical based on their life.
Following the Latino power couple from Cuba to Miami, the show will include hit songs like "Conga," "1-2-3," "Music of My Heart," and "Rhythm is Gonna Get You."
Though Gloria's success with the Miami Sound Machine is well-known, Emilio played an important role in shaping the careers of other Latin artists like Shakira, Ricky Martin, Jennifer Lopez, and Marc Anthony.
In a statement, the pair gushed, "We are very excited to share this story, which is based on hope, determination and the belief that with hard work and passion, our dreams can become reality."
