     The world-renowned recording star announced the details of her concert at

 bursting into the public eye in 1985 as the energetic front woman of Miami
 Sound Machine, she has become an international recording star of epic
 proportions.  Estefan has won two Grammy Awards and released 11 albums, all of
 which have reached multi-platinum status.  Later this summer she will debut in
 her first motion picture "50 Violins" (Miramax) in which she shares the big
 screen with Meryl Streep and Angela Bassett.
     In addition to her two Grammy Awards, Gloria has been the recipient of
 numerous other awards including two American Music Awards and an array of
 coveted Billboard Music Awards

 world," said Jay Cross, president, business operations for the HEAT and Arena.

 arena as she is so loved and respected in Miami and around the world."
