Photos: Gloria Estefan & ON YOUR FEET! Gang Throw Concert to Benefit Viva Broadway!

Gloria Estefan & Miami Sound Machine: A Benefit Concert for Viva Broadway took place last night, September 14th at the Minskoff Theatre, 200 West 45th Street in Manhattan. They returned to New York City to perform a special concert comprising their greatest hits including: "Get On Your Feet," "Conga," "Rhythm is Gonna Get You," "Mi Tierra," and more! They were even joined by the cast of Broadway-Bound On Your Feet! and a special performance by Emily Estefan.

The Broadway production On Your Feet!, a new musical based on the life and music of Emilio & Gloria Estefan, will begin previews October 5, 2015 and opens November 5, 2015 at the Marquis Theatre.

Proceeds from this benefit support Viva Broadway. The Broadway League's Viva Broadway initiative is an audience development partnership with the Hispanic community to help bridge the world of Broadway with Latino audiences around the country. The long-term initiative aims to increase awareness about Broadway while culturally enriching lives, bringing families together, and building new careers in the theatre. Proceeds will go towards The Broadway League's Family First Nights, a nationwide program specifically designed to encourage economically at-risk families to attend theatre on a regular basis.

GLORIA ESTEFAN - With seven Grammy Awards and over 100 million albums sold worldwide, she is the most successful Latin crossover performer in the history of pop music. In addition to her chart-topping hit songs "Conga," "Rhythm is Gonna Get You" and "1, 2, 3," among others, Gloria recorded the Oscar-nominated song "Music Of My Heart," and has received numerous honors and awards over the course of her illustrious career. She has been presented with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, named BMI Songwriter of the Year, and received an American Music Award for Lifetime Achievement, an MTV Video Music Award, two ACE Awards, and multiple Billboard Awards for her many chart-topping hits. Gloria has also been honored with the Ellis Island Congressional Medal of Honor (the highest award that can be given to a naturalized U.S. citizen), the Hispanic Heritage Award, and the National Music Foundation's Humanitarian of the Year Award.
