Gloria María Milagrosa Fajardo García ,[2]​ conocida como Gloria Estefan, es una cantante, compositora y actriz cubano-estadounidense, nieta de emigrantes españoles, de Asturias. Apenas contaba 16 meses de edad cuando su familia, por razones políticas, abandonó la isla alojándose en Miami ya que su padre en ese tiempo era guardaespaldas de la esposa del dictador Fulgencio Batista.[3]​ Él estuvo en la cárcel durante bastante tiempo. Unos años después regresó a Estados Unidos e ingresó en la Armada Norteamericana, luego fue transferido a Texas, lugar al que se mudó toda la familia. En Texas nació Rebecca, la hermana de Gloria.[4]​

A lo largo de su carrera, Gloria ha vendido más de 115 millones de discos en todo el mundo,[5]​ 31,5 millones de ellos en los Estados Unidos,[6]​[7]​ lo que la convierte en una de las artistas musicales con mayores ventas de todos los tiempos. Considerada como la «Madre del Pop Latino»,[8]​ Estefan ha ganado múltiples premios y reconocimientos; entre ellos, siete premios Grammy. Posee una estrella en el Paseo de la fama de Hollywood.

El diario británico The Sun la ubicó en el puesto número 13 de las 50 cantantes que jamás serán olvidadas.[9]​

Tras cursar estudios de psicología en la universidad, se unió a un grupo que tocaba música latina, donde comenzó a cantar. Tras varios conciertos, entró a formar parte del grupo de Emilio Estefan como cantante, cambiando el nombre del grupo por el de The Miami Sound Machine. Gloria Estefan y Emilio se casaron en 1978.[10]​ En 1980 nació el primer hijo de la pareja, Nayib. Ese mismo año falleció el padre de Gloria. También en 1980, comenzaron a publicar sus primeros trabajos: Renacer, Miami Sound Machine, Imported. En estos discos se mezclaban sonidos latinos con letras en español y en inglés.[10]​

En 1981 la CBS les ofreció un contrato con el que se dieron a conocer por toda Latinoamérica y publicaron varios discos más con The Miami Sound Machine.[10]​

„My mother, my dad and I left Cuba when I was two [January, 1959]. Castro had taken control by then, and life for many ordinary people had become very difficult. My dad had worked [as a personal bodyguard for the wife of Cuban president Batista], so he was a marked man. We moved to Miami, which is about as close to Cuba as you can get without being there. It's a Cuba-centric society. I think a lot of Cubans moved to the US thinking everything would be perfect. Personally, I have to say that those early years were not particularly happy. A lot of people didn't want us around, and I can remember seeing signs that said: "No children. No pets. No Cubans." Things were not made easier by the fact that Dad had begun working for the US government. At the time he couldn't really tell us what he was doing, because it was some sort of top-secret operation. He just said he wanted to fight against what was happening back at home. [Estefan's father was one of the many Cuban exiles taking part in the ill-fated, anti-Castro Bay of Pigs invasion to overthrow dictator Fidel Castro. ] One night, Dad disappered. I think he was so worried about telling my mother he was going that he just left her a note. There were rumours something was happening back home, but we didn't really know where Dad had gone. It was a scary time for many Cubans. A lot of men were involved -- lots of families were left without sons and fathers. By the time we found out what my dad had been doing, the attempted coup had taken place, on April 17, 1961. Intitially he'd been training in Central America, but after the coup attempt he was captured and spent the next wo years as a political prisoner in Cuba. That was probably the worst time for my mother and me. Not knowing what was going to happen to Dad. I was only a kid, but I had worked out where my dad was. My mother was trying to keep it a secret, so she used to tell me Dad was on a farm. Of course, I thought that she didn't know what had really happened to him, so I used to keep up the pretence that Dad really was working on a farm. We used to do this whole pretending thing every day, trying to protect each other. Those two years had a terrible effect on my mother. She was very nervous, just going from church to church. Always carrying her rosary beads, praying her little heart out. She had her religion, and I had my music. Music was in our family. My mother was a singer, and on my father's side there was a violinist and a pianist. My grandmother was a poet.“
