Gloria Estefan was born in Havana, Cuba. Her family fled to Miami, Florida when she was a child, as a result of the Cuban Revolution.
Gloria and Emilio started a relationship in the 1970s while they were members of the Miami Sound Machine band. Emilio, then the band's leader, is now a television show producer and director.
Gloria's singing talents and charisma quickly made her the center focus of the Miami Sound Machine and by 1989 she had exclusively become a solo recording artist. She has won several Grammy Awards and Billboard Awards and her hits have topped the American and British charts. Some of her greatest hits are "Conga","Words Get in the Way," "Can't Stay Away from You," "Rhythm Is Gonna Get You," "Anything for You," "Here We Are", "Don't Wanna Lose You," and "Get on Your Feet."
