Invited by Emilo Estefan to join the Miami Latin Boys in 1975, renamed the Miami Sound Machine, Gloria Fajardo never dreamed she would be honored with a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame. In 1978, Gloria and Emilio’s relationship turned personal and the two married on Sept. 1. The band broke into the mainstream with their hit “Conga,” from their first English album, “Eyes of Innocence.” Following the release of their next two albums and hits “Words Get In The Way,” “1-2-3” and “Anything For You,” Gloria found herself at the forefront of American pop music. In 1990, on top of the world, Gloria was involved in an accident that nearly left her paralyzed. Making a miraculous recovery, she gave her comeback performance at the 1991 American Music Awards.
