Gloria Estefan is one of the mentors on The CW's reality singing competition series "The Next: Fame Is at Your Doorstep."

The "Queen of Latin Pop," Cuban-American singer/songwriter Gloria Estefan has been an international phenomenon for over three decades. The crossover smash-songstress got her start in 1975 when she joined local wedding band Miami Sound Machine. Scoring numerous English and Spanish-language hit singles over the span of her illustrious career, Estefan is perhaps best known for such songs as "Conga," "Turn the Beat Around" and "Don't Wanna Lose You."

With her intoxicating blend of Latin-flavored pop and sensitive balladry, Estefan has sold over 100 million albums worldwide and earned three Grammy Awards and four Latin Grammys, making her the most successful crossover performer in Latin music of all time. In 2008, she performed her anthem "Get on Your Feet" during "American Idol's" charity episode "Idol Gives Back."

Estefan is the first Latina to be awarded the BMI songwriter of the Year Honor and was the National Music Foundation's Humanitarian of the Year. She was given a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and was awarded the Ellis Island Congressional Medal of Honor, the highest honor that can be bestowed upon a naturalized U.S. citizen.  

Estefan also authored two children's books that were on the bestseller list of the New York Times.
