"Reach" is a song by Gloria Estefan, released as a single in 1996. Co-written with Diane Warren and taken from the official Atlanta 96 album Rhythm of the Games, it later featured on Destiny, which is Estefan's seventh studio album.[1]

Song history[edit]

"Reach" was one of two official songs of the 1996 Summer Olympics held in Atlanta in 1996. It was written by Gloria Estefan and Diane Warren. The song was nominated to a Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance at the ceremony at 1997, but she lost out to Toni Braxton's "Un-Break My Heart".

Estefan has also recorded a Spanish version of the song, "Puedes Llegar", with Julio Iglesias, Plácido Domingo, Jon Secada, Alejandro Fernández, Roberto Carlos, Ricky Martin, José Luis Rodríguez, Patricia Sosa and Carlos Vives on vocals. This version can be found on the Spanish version of the Olympics compilation album Voces Unidas.
