Musical to celebrate Gloria Estefan’s life
London: The life of Latin pop star Gloria Estefan will be celebrated in a new autobiographical Las Vegas musical.
The show will be performed at the Tropicana Hotel-Casino in the Nevada gaming mecca. However, it will not feature performances of her biggest hits like Rhythm Is Gonna Get You, Turn The Beat Around and Anything For You by the singer herself, reports Sky News.
It will replace the famed showgirl revue Folies Bergere, a variety show that ended a 49-year run in 2008.
The 52-year-old Cuban-born singer hinted that she was planning "something big in Vegas" while accepting a star on the famous Walk of Stars.
Out of a career that bagged seven Grammy Awards and shifted more than 90 million albums worldwide, Estefan considers this project as "one of the most exciting things" to happen in her life.
Legendary Vegas show producer Bernie Yuman, best known for the Siegfried & Roy show, will produce the show.
