Gloria Estefan is joining the Board…
Berklee College of Music has announced that the 58-year-old singer, songwriter, actress and businesswoman and her husband Emilio Estefan are the newest members of the school’s board of trustees.
The Grammy and Latin Grammy-winning power couple have been part of the Berklee family since 2007 when they received honorary degrees.
In 2012, Gloria served as keynote speaker at the Berklee Teachers on Teaching conference.
Most recently, Gloria and Emilio appeared at the 2016 Tony Awards, where their Broadway musical On Your Feet, based on the Cuban artists’ life, was nominated for Sergio Trujillo‘s choreography.
Gloria, along with the cast, performed the hit song “Conga,” even getting Hamilton‘s Lin-Manuel Miranda on his feet.
