Gloria Estefan: The Standards
Thursday, December 11 at 10:30 p.m.
Delight in Grammy®-winning superstar Gloria Estefan’s renditions of some of her favorite songs.
Estefan performs some of her all-time favorite songs, from the Billie Holiday classic “Good Morning Heartache” and her adaptation of Chaplin’s “Smile” to her wedding song, “El Dia Que Me Quieras,” translated into English for the first time as “The Day You Say You Love Me.”
“I chose some of the most beloved songs of all time, songs that spoke to me personally,” says Estefan. “We recorded the album live in the studio with a core group of four incredibly talented musicians, all maestros of this genre, and a wonderful orchestra. Something really special happens when musicians record together live — it was magical, and this PBS special will actually be the first time that I’m performing these songs live in concert.”
