2023 Aspen Ideas : Climate Event - Vice President Kamala Harris In Conversation With Gloria Estefan

(Hola) – On June 15, Gloria Estefan will make history as the only Latina joining the Songwriters Hall of Fame class 2023. The “Conga” singer, alongside Snoop Dogg, Sade, Jeff Lynne, Glen Ballard, Teddy Riley, and Liz Rose, will be honored for their achievements in music.

Days before the big event, Gloria joined Shania Twain in the most recent installment of Home Now Radio on Apple Music Hits. The renowned Cuban-American vocalist shared how Miami has influenced her music, her feelings about being inducted into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame, and her selective approach toward the projects she chooses to undertake.

“We all get nominated a bunch of years. It’s hard to pick because there’s so many people, and there’s only a certain number that you can choose,” Gloria said about the induction. “So I’m just very thankful to be in this amazing company. I’m a big fan of everybody that’s going to get an award. And it’s a special thing for me because songwriting to me is a way to communicate with people that you may never meet, and we become a part of their story, and we give them ideas, and we express their feelings for them many a time, and they develop a connection that’s beautiful.”

Additionally, Shania expresses her admiration for Latin music, playing her preferred international crossover tracks and artists, and expresses her admiration for Selena Gomez and Jennifer Lopez. “I love Selena Gomez. She’s such a champion. She’s a great actress, great singer. I did meet her in person. She came to see me perform in Las Vegas at my residency in the Coliseum. She was so sweet and charming,” Twain said. “She brought her dad. Her dad wanted to meet me, so we were all backstage chatting. We took photos. She was just very humble and kind. So I just wanted to say that about Selena. I love her records.”
