Theme:–The Year of ‘Uppertunity’ – Get Lifted!”
With Higher Hopes, Bolder Dreams and Greater Teams (Old-School Flava)

Who says you have to be young to be a Bond girl or a Hollywood icon to score a Latin hit? That’s what some are thinking after weekend releases on the big screen and Broadway. It’s a case of James Bond movies and Gloria Estefan music having twists and turns for the best of times with the stuff of dreams.

The Broadway show is Estefan’s Cuban-American story. She tells Hollywood Reporter “We wanted to succeed with who we were, because if you succeed, you’re gonna be doing it the rest of your life, so you better like it!” Basically, pack some flavor in your craft, watch what happens to passion after the first draft.

The first Bond movie was Dr. No. The first English-language song by Estefan was Dr. Beat. Interestingly, she was told ‘no’ by a record executive who felt a crossover Latin artist was impossible. Her story reminds us that to keep the dream alive means staying on your feet, proving things and turning the beat around.

She didn’t take ‘no’ as final, keeping focus on her Miami Sound Machine. She even had to bounce back from a tour bus accident. That didn’t stop her reaching higher and making the hits hotter. She feels focus has given the universe reasons to conspire to help her dreams, so that things meant to happen, happen.

Bond movies and Estefan’s music are buzz worthy for their drive to the end, leaving room for a little playtime. Along the way there’re surprise moments that bring goosebumps or empowers ‘oomphs.’ No wonder the Bond franchise keeps rolling in dough and Estefan’s story is good enough for its own show.
