When Gloria Fajardo was a senior in high school, she and some friends put together a band to play for a party. Emilio Estefan came to one of their rehearsals to give the girls a few tips. As leader of the Miami Latin Boys, Emilio was well respected on the music scene. A few months later, he asked Gloria to join his band. She couldn't refuse. Though still in college, Gloria found time to finish her degree, sing with the band, and in 1978, she married Emilio. Changing the band's name to the Miami Sound Machine, Emilio and Gloria set about to entertain the world with music. In 1990, their dream almost came to an end when their tour bus was hit on a snowy road near the New York state line. Gloria broke her back. She thought she would never perform again.
Gloria's struggle to return to the world of music she loves is a wonderful story for all.
