GOOD MORNING AMERICA, ABC
Gloria Estefan stopped by this morning's Good Morning America to talk about recording her upcoming 27th album. The seven-time Grammy winner also spoke to GMA's Robin Roberts about her upcoming Broadway musical currently titled 'Do That Conga,' which is inspired by the music made famous by the International superstar and her husband musician/producer and entrepreneur Emilio Estefan.
"We're working on it," shared the singer. "We hope to have [the book] by January and hopefully within a couple of years we will be on stage."
It was recently reported that some of the industry's biggest names are vying for the coveted lead role in the project, including Thalia and Jennifer Lopez. When asked whether she'd like to see J-Lo play herself in the musical, Estefan quipped, "Do you really think she wants to play eight shows a week? I don't think so!"
In February, the Nederlander Organization and Estefan Enterprises jointly announced that they are in the process of developing and producing the new musical. The story will be set in a way that tells the Estefans' riveting life story detailing their journey all the way from Cuba to superstardom.
