Queen of Modern Pop-Latin Crossover
Gloria Estefan

If Celia Cruz (rest in peace) was known as the "Queen of Salsa", Gloria Estefan would probably be considered the Queen of modern Pop-Latin crossover. A prolific composer and vocalist, Gloria Estefan's music pioneered the unique contemporary crossover Miami sound that is the catalyst of today's mainstream tropical Pop Latin flavor as her music has inspired millions of people worldwide. In short, her extraordinary talent helped pave the way for other contemporary superstars--including the late great Selena, also Ricky Martin, Thalia, Jenifer Lopez, Marc Anthony, Enrique Iglesias, Christina Aguilera, La India, Shakira, and many others.

Although her accomplishments as a musician and as a human being are far too many to recount in this short essay, perhaps at this time it is too soon to measure her musical talent and personality with other legendary divas of Latin music such as Graciela (vocalist with the famed Machito & his Afro-Cubans orchestra), Olga Gillot, La Lupe and the larger-than-life "Queen of Salsa" Celia Cruz, who recently died. Nonetheless, history will most certainly tell (if not already) that Gloria is one of the great ones.

To a great extent, it is not difficult to discern Gloria's personal character as an artist and role model. One only has to read the lyrics of her songs. These carefully crafted lyrics reflect a deep love for the art of music, a message of love, hope, happiness, make you dance, shed some tears, joyful feelings, inspiration, empowering women, Latinos and everyone to "Get on Your Feet" and make it happen.

We are very pleased to honor one of the greatest musicians in the history of contemporary popular Latin music by presenting the lyrics to some of her most notable songs. Follow the links and enjoy!
