Gloria Estefan is about to get real with Oprah on how she paved the way for many Latin artists and their careers, including Shakira!
The music legend will sit down with Queen O for an in-depth interview covering the singers extraordinary career, struggles, and how she guided many of the most popular Latin cross over artists to success!
The seven-time Grammy Awards winner explained to Oprah how she fought with executives to release Shaky's first (and now super popular) English-language album:
"They wanted her just to throw a couple of songs in English on a Latin record and I fought hard. I said, 'Listen. This is her shot. You can't do it halfway, you know’? An American audience is not gonna get a record that's mostly Spanish because there's a couple of English cuts on it. They're gonna want to hear the whole thing. This is gonna work. I fought hard for her. Fought hard. And she sold like 13 million of that album."
The inspiring episode is set to air August 4 at 9 p.m.!!!
On Saturday, Todd Fisher, and his wife, Catherine Hickland, organized a public memorial service for his sister, Carrie Fisher, and mom, Debbie Reynolds, who died just a day apart back in December.
The beautiful service was held at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Hollywood Hills, and was live-streamed on Reynolds' website for all to experience.
