Gloria Estefan Celebrates the Release of "The Standards"
It's been an amazing day my Sazoneros! I had the pleasure of meeting and listening to Gloria Estefan speak about her new album called "The Standards" which will be available for purchase on September 10th. If you love songs like "What A Wonderful Day" by Louis Armstrong or "Young at Heart" by Frank Sinatra, you will love Gloria's rendition of these classic tunes. I sat right in front of her as she shared the inspiration and the meaning behind her latest project. "The Standards" will touch listeners all over the world this month because Gloria sang and recorded the album in English, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese and French. Estefan even collaborated with award-winning artists like singer songwriter Laura Pausini, violinist Joshua Bell and saxophonist Dave Koz. The entire album was assembled by the "best of the best" as you'll see in the video at the bottom of my post. Today's press event was extra special because Gloria just celebrated her birthday this past Sunday, September 1st, and she also celebrated her wedding anniversary yesterday. Talk about a fab start to the month!! After Gloria's interview, Sony Music presented her with a beautiful plaque to commemorate the fact that she has sold 100 million albums worldwide. Congrats Gloria!
