"Más Allá" (en: Beyond) is a song by Gloria Estefan, released as the second single from her second Spanish album Abriendo Puertas.

Song History[edit]

The song has a religious background, and like several other songs on Abriendo Puertas, makes reference to Christmas. This theme is underscored by a church bell ringing throughout the song.

This song was also sung to Pope John Paul II on the celebration of his 50 years of Priesthood. This act made Estefan the first pop singer to be invited to sing to the Pope. She was asked several times earlier to perform for the Pope while he was in Cuba, but she declined the offer because she did not want to sing in a Cuba under Fidel Castro.
