I must point out here that Miami Sound Machine is now (since 2002) a completely different music band, formed by three girls, produced by Emilio Estefan Jr.—Preceding unsigned comment added by 201.252.222.107 (talkcontribs)

  • If you posted this because you think it should be explained in this article, I'm not sure I think it's necessary. The text about her solo career pretty much doesn't mention the Miami Sound Machine at all. Raven1977Talk to meMy edits 23:07, 23 March 2009 (UTC)
The information should be put back in. In fact, there shouldn't be a redirect here from Miami Sound Machine.--71.203.125.108 (talk) 12:50, 17 April 2010 (UTC)

I agree with Miami Sound Machine should not redirect to Gloria Estefan, there is probably enough material for a separate article (even if Miami Sound Machine was still as of now Gloria's backing / support band. Wfoj2 (talk) 18:55, 29 January 2012 (UTC)

Changes to article[edit]

I worked on this article about two years ago. It looks dramatically different now - in some ways improved, but also stuff has been edited out that should not have been, namely:

  • information about her youth and high school years
  • her college career at the University of Miami (1975-1978)
  • her business ventures with Emilio outside of music (e.g. resturants, resorts) needs updating. For example, the article talks about them going to open a resort in Vero in 2008 called Costa d'Este - well, the resort has been open for a while and is doing well
  • information about the accident her tour bus had with the truck in the 1990s has been minimized, esp. relating to what she went through to recover from her injuries --Hokeman (talk) 01:36, 4 May 2009 (UTC)

"Duet with NSYNC"?[edit]

The article says In 1999 Estefan performed a duet with *NSYNC on the single "Music Of My Heart", How can six people singing together be "a duet"? 70.240.149.193 (talk) 20:08, 16 April 2010 (UTC)

If you look at duet, it can refer to the performers of a duet. Indirectly, NSync is seen as a group or one performer and Estefan as the other. There is probably a better term for this harmonization but duet has not had an objection until today. --Morenooso (talk) 20:14, 16 April 2010 (UTC)

protection[edit]

Looks like we need some protection on the article for a while given high levels of vandalism. Span (talk) 10:51, 27 October 2010 (UTC)

Upside-down picture[edit]

The first image in the article is upside-down. Would it be alright to just flip it & upload it? MonoTrouble (talk) 19:03, 14 April 2013 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done. Thx. Fat&Happy (talk) 19:18, 14 April 2013 (UTC)
