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.
