Get on your feet to wish Gloria Estefan a happy birthday! The Latin megastar turns 58, and we're betting a little song and dance will be involved in today's festivities.
Estefan, the worldwide Grammy sensation who's given us irresistible toe-tapping classics like Rhythm Is Gonna Get You, Conga and, of course, Get On Your Feet, is about to treat fans to yet another great production—this time, under the bright lights of Broadway! On Your Feet will feature the inspiring story and music of the Cuban-born duo, Gloria and husband Emilio Estefan, the musician-producer who founded the Miami Sound Machine. The musical kicked off with a Chicago run this summer and will officially open on Broadway in November.
No matter how busy Gloria gets, it seems she always has time for the many pups waiting for her at home. The longtime dog- and animal-lover often posts her pooches' tales on Instagram, even calling on fans to help support like-minded charities.
Take a look at some of the funny canine adventures Gloria's shared as we celebrate her special day!
