Congratulations to Cuban American musical artist Gloria Estefan, the first Hispanic female inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
Gloria Estefan on becoming the first Hispanic woman to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame: “Every song comes differently”
Gloria Estefan is making history by becoming the first Hispanic woman to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
“To be the first of anything at this age is fantastic,” Estefan told “CBS Mornings” on Wednesday.
For Estefan, songwriting appears to come naturally. She’s sold over 100 million records worldwide, has garnered eight Grammy Awards and is the voice behind smash hits like “Anything for You” and “Rhythm is Gonna Get You.”
Estefan said that creating music has never been easy for her but once she’s been able to put her thoughts and emotions down, the words come easily.
“The minute I finish writing a song, I think I will never be able to do this again… Each one is different. Every song comes differently,” she said.
By her side for the last 47 years is her husband, Emilio Estefan Gómez, a fellow musician and producer. Together the two are credited for paving the way for other Latin artists like Shakira and Ricky Martin and helping them crossover into mainstream pop.
Estefan said that she and her husband became their own “cheerleaders” and took the industry head-on.
