Looking back to the time when I was the record executive in charge of the development of Gloria's musical career, gives me a sense of pride. It was a labor of love.
No one, and I do mean no one, had faith in them. The company viewed them as a little group out of Miami. We worked tirelessly until we crossed over and exploded in mainstream America with "Conga."
Now there are a million people who take responsibility for their success and the Miami Sound. To Gloria Estefan who is the most down to earth superstar there is, and to my brother, Emilio Estefan, who never seizes to amaze me with his stamina and ingenuity, "Congratulations!" Proud to have been there every step of the way, Next stop Broadway.
