Tras vender cien millones de discos, la cantante Gloria Estefan está más familiar, más agradecida que nunca. Así lo demostró cuando, en estos días, para el concierto privado en el que grabó un programa para la PBS, decidió rodearse de VIPS… pero VIPS no políticos ni industriales, sino VIPS de su vida íntima. Entre los invitados estaban un grupo de compañeras de la escuela secundaria -con las que siempre se ha mantenido en contacto-, su familia –incluyendo a su nieto-, su equipo de trabajadores y amigos íntimos -muchos de los cuales llevan con ella toda una vida-.
También invitó a algunos fans. "Hicimos un sorteo para que algunos de ellos vinieran desde diferentes partes del mundo", dijo durante el evento patrocinado por la AARP y la PBS. "Estoy feliz de tenerlos entre nosotros."Continue Reading >
¿Te imaginas que pases ocho horas en la oficina con la misma persona con la prepararás la cena y te vas a la cama? ¿Y que tus fines de semana también sean con el hombre con el que compartes el trabajo de lunes a viernes? Es decir, que no tienes alivio entre la jornada profesional y tu jornada como mamá y esposa y que ves a tu media naranja hasta en la sopa. No está fácil. Y lo confirma nada más y nada menos que Gloria Estefan.Continue Reading >
William Levy could be headed to Broadway! Just a few weeks after Gloria Estefan revealed she and her family are producing a show based on their lives, Levy has expressed interest in the role of Estefan's husband, Emilio.
"Yes, I would love to take Emilio Estefan and Gloria Estefan's story to Broadway," the actor said in a statement. "They are people I admire very much for everything they have achieved. People that left Cuba and it's a story that not only Cubans would love to see, but all Latinos would. It's a story about overcoming."
Oh my god! Can you imagine Levy on a Broadway stage?! I certainly can. Somehow, I pretty sure he'd have no problem whatsoever drawing an audience.Continue Reading >

If you are as addicted to reality talent shows as I am, then you (like me!) couldn't help but tune in to the premiere of Gloria Estefan's new show last night, The Next. And though it's still a little too early for me to decide whether the rest of the season is a must-see or not, I have to admit that the first episode had pretty memorable moments--including seeing Estefan pass on some of her hard-earned wisdom to her mentee…oh, and watching the superstar be forced to mow a lawn!
Gloria Estefan's singing competition, The Next, is officially premiering at 9 pm tonight on the CW! The show has garned a lot of buzz in the past few months and now finally, the world will get to see Estefan and her fellow co-stars, Joe Jonas, Nelly, and John Rich serve as mentors for superstar hopefuls.Continue Reading >

Gloria Estefan es una de esas mujeres que es como el vino, mientras más tiempo pasa mejor se ve. Nos da esperanza a todas, y ahora incluso más, que se nos convirtió en abuela. Sin duda la abuela más despampanante del mundo del espectáculo latino.

Hay un hombre nuevo en mi vida: Sasha Argento Estefan, nuestro primer nieto nació a las 8:04!", comunicó esta orgullosa Mamá Latina , a quien enviamos un abrazote.Continue Reading >
There's something you should probably know about me: I have a secret love of classic music. Although I love my reggaeton, hip hop and all other kinds of modern music, there's something about older music (I mean 50's and 60's here) that just warms my heart. To be honest, that's why I am such a huge fan of Tony Bennett.
His music has always appealed to my romantic side because it's just so beautiful, heartfelt and soothing. To top it all off, though, I love that he's also a fan of modern artists and has done a couple duet-based CDs with them. But I've been waiting for him to do more with Latin artists—and now I'm finally getting my wish! Although Tony has previous sang with Juanes and Alejandro Sanz, he's currently in the middle of recording a Latin Duet Album and I am SO excited.
