Summary

Gloria Estefan: Singer profiles a singer who opened the door for Latin music everywhere. This comprehensive volume provides useful information on how to become a singer while tracing those steps taken by a professional.

Gloria Estefan is one of the most successful Latin American recording stars of all time. Both as a soloist and with her former band, Miami Sound Machine, Estefan helped bring Latin music to a wider audience and gained international celebrity status both for her talent and good nature. Her story is also one of struggle, having fled her native Cuba as a child and having survived a near-fatal bus accident in 1990. But through her determination and strong personal beliefs, she has managed to use her hardships as inspiration for her music.
