The Conga is coming to the Great White Way!!!
Oh but wait. There's more…
Sources say there's already a superstar interested in the lead role!
Well, then it's settled. This will be the BEST show Broadway has ever seen!!!
Gloria is excited to see her personal story on stage and said the musical will feature all of the ups and downs of her life. Estefan disclosed:
Is this woman not totally PERFECTO?!
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.!!!
Ch-ch-check out a sneak peek of the OWN interview…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
We've waited so long for this!
Gloria Estefan is FINALLY back on stage!
We told you earlier this year about Gloria's latest passion project - an album of her singing the standards.
But before that album hits stores, Glory is giving one hell of a performance on NATIONAL TV!
Ch-ch-check out the clip above from the Latin legend's upcoming concert special, airing on PBS in August!
Her voice is ANYTHING but standard! Girl is smooth as SILK!
We LOVEZ it!
C'mon shake your body, baby do that congaaaa…Gov'na!
Gloria Estefan is back, and in a very British way!
For one night only, Glory will be performing classic standards and her greatest hits for the first time in the UK!
The Latina singer reveals:
The very lovely and talented Gloria Estefan is FINALLY going to be making sweet, sweet music again!! YAYY!!!
The star has returned to Sony Music Entertainment, her record label of 30 years, with a multi-album deal. And better yet, she’ll be releasing a standards album this fall aptly titled The Standards!
The record will consist of tracks that hold special meaning to the singer, including The Way You Look Tonight and Good Morning Heartache!
Bogdan Roscic, President of Sony Classical and Sony Masterworks added:
And not just any conservative, but a conservative Latina at that!
One of Joy’s potential replacements include Rachel Campos-Duffy, a strict Catholic and Republican, who has six kids and was on the Real World: San Francisco!
She’s also married to a Republican congressman and tried out for the show back in 1999!
Another name that’s popped up has been Jaci Velasquez, who is 33 and married with two kids, along with her own radio show!
As for our favorite person possibly in the running??? Gloria Estefan! We would LOVE to see her on the show!
However, it sounds like they won’t be filling Joy’s spot just yet, as an insider stated:
Gloria Estefan knows how to take care of us…whether her love comes from her music or her pups!
The lovely Latina tweeted a photo of her GAWRGEOUS babes, Bowser and Emilio (Emiliooooooooooo!) and we just want to steal them for our own!
But no…we must resist….as that would be no bueno!
I think Bowser (on the left) looks like Emilio…Cutie Pies!! No se les parece a Emilio el de la izquierda, Bowser? LOL!
So PRESCHUZZ!!! SO ADORBz!!!! We want them so bad!!!!
