Gloria Estefan Reunites With Sony Music Entertainment

MIAMI, April 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Sony Music Entertainment is proud to announce the return of international superstar Gloria Estefan to her longtime label home.

The globally renowned seven-time Grammy award winning singer, songwriter and actress is resuming her incredibly successful, time-tested alliance with Sony Music via a multi-album agreement to develop a diverse array of new projects.

Gloria Estefan has achieved worldwide sales of over 100 million units over the course of her legendary career, and 38 #1 hits across the Billboard charts. Her iconic hits, which include  "Conga," "Turn The Beat Around," "Get On Your Feet" and Spanish-language chart-toppers "Con Los Anos Que Me Quedan" and " Mi Tierra," have made an indelible impression on generations of music fans. She also has received countless achievements; including her Oscar nominated song "Music of My Heart," a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and an American Music Award for Lifetime Achievement. Much of her storied music career has been spent as a Sony Music recording artist, beginning with her years leading Miami Sound Machine.

Welcoming Gloria back to Sony Music, Afo Verde, Chairman and CEO of Sony Music Entertainment for the Latin Region, Spain and Portugal, said, "It only takes one word to recognize her magnificent voice. Gloria is one-of-a-kind – in any language, in any genre. She sings better every day! Dearest Gloria, welcome to the place that always was and always will be your home, Sony Music. We are honored, happy and thank you for your trust. The best is yet to come!"

Gloria Estefan expressed her enthusiasm about the alliance and announced her new project: "I'm excited to join again with Sony, who I have happily worked with for over 30 years, " she said. " The Standards , a project which has been a lifelong dream, will be the first of many more to come with my Sony family. "

The expansive, multilingual project The Standards is produced by Gloria herself. She personally selected songs with a deep connection to her life. These include American standards "The Way You Look Tonight" and  "Good Morning Heartache," which she performed at her very first Tonight Show appearance in 1985 with Miami Sound Machine. She also wrote "The Day You Say You Love Me," a moving English version of the Carlos Gardel tango classic  "El Dia Que Me Quieras," the only translation ever authorized by his estate. This gem is dear to her heart as it was her wedding song.   The Standards is co-produced by Grammy Award-winning pianist, producer and arranger Shelly Berg, and Gloria's husband, 19-time Grammy Award winner Emilio Estefan.

Gloria Estefan is already acclaimed for her skill at delightfully reinventing timeless songs – her RIAA Double Platinum album Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me  (1994) featured remakes from the 1950s-1970s. Now, with The Standards , she interprets these gorgeous classic songs in English, Spanish, Italian, French and Portuguese, and invites world-renowned collaborators including Dave Koz, Joshua Bell and Laura Pausini, The Standards , scheduled for a fall release, furthers Gloria Estefan's reputation as an interpreter  par excellence.

Gloria Estefan album is an event because she always gives us more than we expect – musically, visually and artistically. Her previous album, Miss Little Havana (2011), kept her momentum going strong with the #1 dance club hits  "Hotel Nacional" and "Wepa." Furthermore, with "Hotel Nacional," Gloria also became the first female artist to debut a song at #1 on Billboard's Hot Latin Songs chart. Most recently, she performed with  Tony Bennett on his Top 10  Viva Duets  album.

Bogdan Roscic , President of Sony Classical and Sony Masterworks said, "Masterworks is thrilled to be a marketing partner with Sony Latin and Gloria Estefan on this very special project. It represents another landmark in the career of an artist who continues to be a creative inspiration in all styles of popular music."

Nir Seroussi, Managing Director of Sony Music U.S. Latin said, "We're very excited that Gloria – one of the greatest ambassadors of Latin music – has returned to Sony, her home, with an extraordinary album that will surely be embraced by her millions of fans."

With more projects on the way to dazzle and delight her fans, the legendary Gloria Estefan will continue opening doors around the world as a premier artist of the  Sony Music Entertainment family.
