Gloria Estefan brings biographical musical ‘On Your Feet’ to Hollywood

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES (HOLLYWOOD PANTAGES THEATRE) – As her acclaimed Broadway musical ‘On Your Feet’ spreads Los Angeles, Cuban-American superstar Gloria Estefan calls on Latinos to stick together in the face President Donald Trump’s crackdown and harsh rhetoric on undocumented immigrants.

‘On Your Feet,’ which charts the (not quite) rags to riches life story of the Havana-born singer from her early years in Cuba to emigrating to the United States and conquering the global music charts, is a story about immigrants, says Estefan.

“The message I have for Latinos all over the world who feel sad is stay strong, don’t lose your culture … we have to unite, support each other as Latinos and as humans and remain true to who we are,” said Estefan.

The 60-year-old has navigated the music industry with her husband, producer and manager, Emilio Estefan, for over 30 years.

“For me the most important thing is to be be authentic, to be a person that is always proud of where they come from,” said Emilio Estefan.

“Get respect and make a contribution here like we have done in this country,” he added.

“On Your Feet’ is at the Hollywood Pantages Theatre until July 29.
