Gloria Estefan will join Oprah Winfrey for an in-depth interview covering the Latin music superstar’s extraordinary career — and the many musical paths she’s helped pave for other stars.

The seven-time Grammy Award winner is the latest musician to join Winfrey on her OWN show “Oprah’s Next Chapter,” following high profile chats with the likes of Justin Bieber, Usher, Rihanna and Fergie.

In the episode that goes to air Aug. 4 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT, Estefan explores how she guided the careers of Ricky Martin, Jennifer Lopez, Marc Anthony and Shakira, among others. In one stretch, Estefan tells Oprah how she fought label execs to release Shakira’s first English-language album, a record that went on establish the Colombian beauty as a global star.

“They wanted her just to throw a couple of songs in English on a Latin record and I fought hard. I said, ‘Listen. This is her shot. You can’t do it halfway, you know’?” Estefan says. “An American audience is not gonna get a record that’s mostly Spanish because there’s a couple of English cuts on it. They’re gonna want to hear the whole thing. This is gonna work. I fought hard for her. Fought hard. And she sold like 13 million of that album.”

Estefan and Oprah sit down for a Cuban-style lunch at the singer’s home in Vero Beach, Florida, where they chat about Estefan’s upbringing as a Cuban exile, her rise into the mainstream, and that shocking bus crash in the 1990s that almost left her paralyzed.

Latin music’s premier female artist has sold more than 100 million albums. She’s also in charge of a string of enterprises, has a Broadway musical about her life, and a minor stake in the Miami Dolphins NFL team.

During her radio show, Contacto directo con Jenni Rivera, the Mexican singer declared, “I wish I never married him, that’s the truth. I suffered a lot and now I see it was a mistake. The things that happened were terrible, bad enough that I finally stood up and said, ‘no more, I won’t take this anymore.’”

Written by Juan Gabriel, the single includes lyrics of a brokenhearted woman who becomes empowered by self-love. Her new single will be included in Jenni’s upcoming greatest hits compilation, which will include two unedited tracks. According to People en Español, the new album will be released in December.

“Enamorada de ti,” an album featuring well-known artists such as Selena Gomez  and Don Omar in posthumous duets with slain singer Selena Quintanilla, 17 years  after her death, is now on sale.

The Capitol Latin record label announced in a press release that the  production has three acoustic numbers and the iTunes edition includes the song  “Is It the Beat,” a remix recorded by Juan Magan as a bonus track.

Selena was the stage name of Tex-Mex singer Selena Quintanilla-Pérez, born  April 16, 1971, in Lake Jackson, Texas, and murdered by Yolanda Saldívar, the  president of her fan club, on March 31, 1995, in Corpus Christi.

Selena,  Celia Cruz and Other Latin Music Legends Honored With U.S. Postal Stamp and  Smithsonian Guitars


In 1995, Selena made history by becoming the first artist to simultaneously  have five Spanish-language albums among Billboard’s Top 200 Albums.

The new album includes collaborations by Cristian Castro, Don Omar and Selena  Gomez.

In March, Chris Pérez, the guitarist to whom the singer was married when she  was killed, published a book in which he tells his story of love with the queen  of Tex-Mex music in both Spanish and English.


Last Spring, the U.S. Postal service announced that Quintanilla would be  getting her own stamp along with the late greats Tito Puente, Carmen Miranda,  Selena, Carlos Gardel and Celia Cruz.

The stamps are part of the “Latin Music Legends Series” and were given to  these artists in particular for their invaluable contributions to the  entertainment industry and international impact.

“There is no doubt that the legends are deserving of this recognition,” said  Roy Betts, manager of community relations for the U.S. Postal Service. “We are  proud to be bringing them to life.”

“They have made historic contributions,” he added. “They are icons not only  in the Latin community, but in a larger stage.”

Betts is not surprised that these entertainers were the chosen few for the  prestigious honor. According to the spokesman, the tribute speaks volumes of the  U.S. Latin American community.
