Music veteran Gloria Estefan is going to be honored at a prestigious dinner for the Latin Grammy's on Nov. 12 In Houston. Estefan is being honored for her philanthropic, professional and cultural accomplishments.
"The Latin Recording Academy and its Board of Trustees are elated to recognize Gloria Estefan as an extraordinary Latina woman, humanitarian and talented musician who has made a global impact on music and culture," said Latin Recording Academy President Gabriel Abaroa.
"She is one of Latin music's most enduring icons, and we are privileged to be honoring such a dedicated, generous, and gifted lady."
A portion of the proceeds from the evening's tribute dinner will benefit the Gloria Estefan Foundation as well as St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital. Gloria has definitely paid her dues in the music industry so it's great that she's being honored!
