The seven-time Grammy Award-winning international superstar returns to the spotlight with her 2013 album The Standards. With a career spanning over 35 years, having sold over 100 million albums worldwide, Gloria Estefan is one of the best selling musical artists of all time. The Standards reaches out to her global fan base via international song classics sung in English, Spanish, Portuguese and French, some with new lyrics written by Estefan

“I grew up listening to Frank Sinatra, Johnny Mathis, Henry Mancini and great romance recording artists in Mexico and Cuba,” says Havana-born Estefan. “This genre is right up my alley, since music is always a catharsis to me.” Estefan waited until now to do a standards album to get “enough life under my belt,” she says, “since there are so many torch songs requiring life experience to deliver them with proper credibility".

Gloria’s sultry voice perfectly embraces some of the most recognizable and beloved songs from musical eras that span decades. The album also features collaborations with world class, award-winning artists like singer-songwriter Laura Pausini, violinist Joshua Bell and saxophonist Dave Koz.

The Standards is co-produced by Grammy nominated pianist, producer/arranger Shelly Berg (Patti Austen, Elliot Smith and Arturo Sandoval), along with her husband, 19-time Grammy Award-winning producer Emilio Estefan. Estefan approached these standards with fresh ideas. “They Can’t Take That Away From Me” has an Afro-Cuban meets the waltz feel, for Antonio Carlos Jobim’s Brazilian classic “Eu Sei Que Vou Te Amar” she composed English lyrics for the first-ever English version, “It’s You I’ll Always Love,” and also recorded it in Spanish and French.
