Loaded with Estefan's infectious pop classics, the show is directed by two-time Tony Award winner Jerry Mitchell with choreography by Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys). The show also features n original song co-written by Gloria and their daughter, Emily. With hits like "Conga," "Rhythm is Gonna Get You" and "Get On Your Feet," we guarantee that by the end of the show you too will be On Your Feet and dancing along with the cast!
Rhythm Is Gonna Get You
Gloria Estefan began her career in the band Miami Sound Machine, who released their debut album Live Again/Renancer in 1977. With their Latin-influenced synth-pop and disco, the group hit the big time in the eighties with tracks including 'Rhythm is Gonna Get You', 'Conga' and 'Dr. Beat'. Estefan later pursued a highly successful music and movie career, earning seven Grammys in the process, and miraculously overcame a potentially paralysing broken back in 1990.
All this time she was supported by her husband Emilio, a massive name in the Latin music industry, who also helped shape the careers of Ricky Martin, Shakira and Jennifer Lopez.
Did you know?
Gloria Estefan has earned seven Grammy Awards, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, an AMA Lifetime Achievement Award and has sold over 100 million records. All this despite being involved in a major car crash just five years after her first big hit which required a year of intensive rehabilitation.
