"Don't Let This Moment End" is a song by Gloria Estefan, released as the second single in the United States, the third in the United Kingdom, and her fourth globally, from her eighth album gloria!.

Song history[edit]

"Don't Let This Moment End" is a kind of ballad with a Club-Dance background. This song was the second single released for commercial purpose in the U.S. after "Heaven's What I Feel".

The song was recorded in two languages, English and French. The title of the song in French is "Que Ça Ne Finisse Jamais" and is only available on the Gloria! European edition of the album as a bonus track.

This single became a smash hit on the dance charts, almost peaking at the top of charts for that field. Also thanks to the song, Gloria Estefan was nominated for the second consecutive time for a Grammy Music Award for "Best Dance Recording", but lost to Cher's smash hit "Believe".

The B-side to this single was "70's Moment Medley" recorded especially for this single release, on which Estefan sang covers of disco songs. On that medley Estefan included:
