Gloria Estefan: How I Found My Voice

Art &
Culture

Gloria Estefan is one of the most successful female singers ever. With more than 120 million records sold worldwide, three Grammy Awards, and a career spanning four decades, she has helped make Latin-flavoured pop music an international success. Estefan is also the recipient of the Presidential Medal of Honor and has her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. From fleeing Cuba as a young child when it fell under Castro’s control, narrowly escaping death in a bus accident aged 32, to marrying her first boyfriend, who was also the founder of her first band Miami Sound Machine, she has lived a remarkable life.

In this exclusive live podcast recording of the award-winning How I Found Your Voice, presented by Samira Ahmed, Estefan will reflect on her path to musical success and fame. Other guests in this podcast series include Margaret Atwood, Michael Palin, Richard Branson and Rose McGowan.
