With a broad view into the future, the foundation’s long-term goal is to thrive as a lasting expression of the Estefan’s dream.
Emilio Estefan one of the most successful producers the music industry has experienced. His passion, unquestionable faith, and ability to keep alive his Latin roots in everything he does, have made Emilio's vision a trademark, a unique sound and a symbol of credibility and prestige. Emilio has not only proven that the Latin community at large is vital for the evolution of pop music, but he has been instrumental in breaking down barriers that limited its exposure and acceptance around the world. As a true visionary, Emilio has continually experimented and pushed the envelope of blending Latin, pop and world rhythms that have created a unique style and personality.
Gloria Estefan, is a Cuban-born American singer, songwriter, actress, and businesswoman. In 1975 she met keyboardist Emilio Estefan, her future husband, who led a band called the Miami Latin Boys. Estefan became the lead singer and the band was renamed the Miami Sound Machine, before going on to score several Top 10 hits in the 1980s and 1990s. Estefan and her husband later produced a Broadway musical, On Your Feet!, which featured the Miami Sound Machine's popular songs.
Singer, songwriter, producer & performer. Emily Estefan releases her brand new video "F#ck To Be." The concept behind the video shows Emily discovering and noticing a world that it is not what she expected instead it is very sterile and ominous. F#ck to Be will be the first single from her forthcoming full length CD, Take Whatever You Want. Emily wrote, recorded, produced and performed her full album at Fairy Light Studios.
Founded in 1997, the Gloria Estefan foundation promotes education, health and cultural development. The organization funds itself through proceeds from several of Gloria's songs, benefit concerts and donations from supporters. The singer has said, “My foundation tries to help people that fall through the cracks, that can’t get help from big organizations… We try to fill in where immediate help is needed.”
As Gloria is a strong supporter of spinal cord research, the Foundation has been a big part of the growth of the Miami Project to Cure Paralysis. It is an open-door Foundation accessible to individual cases of hardship. Animal causes have always been close to Gloria's heart. Each year the foundation supports no-kill shelters throughout the United States and helped to fund the creation of the Vero Beach Dog Park. We are honored to in some way be a part of keeping safe the hard working and loyal police dogs that help protect Miami Beach.
