President Obama Sits Down for an Interview with Gloria Estefan

President Obama recently sat down for an exclusive interview with Cuban-born singer Gloria Estefan.  According to White House staff, Estefan spoke to the President for a holiday special on the Spanish-language network Univision.

The special, Nuestra Navidad, will focus on the importance of community service and will showcase President Obama’s call to action.  Along with the President, the show will also include appearances by Latino celebrities like singer Thalia, as well as local heroes who have made positive contributions to their communities.

The Estefans have already had considerable interaction with the Obama White House.  In October, Gloria attended a White House event celebrating Hispanic musical heritage.  Her husband, Emilio Estefan, was recently named to a commission that is studying the creation of a National Museum of the American Latino.

Speaking of the show, which is being produced by his company, Emilio Estefan said that it is “our best to date.”

“As in years past, we showcase some of Latin music’s brightest stars singing their chart-topping hits and holiday classics, but what I think truly speaks of the magic of the season are the powerful and heart warming stories we share in this holiday special,” he said in a statement. “Although we are going through very difficult times on so many levels, this show proves that the power of the human spirit and hope are still very much alive in our great country.”

Nuestra Navidad airs on Univision tonight, December 17th, at 10:00 P.M.
