It has been said that extraordinary leaders are ordinary human beings who possess an extraordinary vision and put all of their passion, drive and ambition to bring it into fruition. This is what has made Emilio Estefan one of the most successful producers the music industry has experienced. His passion, unquestionable faith, and ability to keep alive his Latin roots in everything he does, have made Emilio's vision a trademark, a unique sound and a symbol of credibility and prestige.

THIS IS EMILIO.
