Legendary Cuban songstress Gloria Estefan announced Monday that her upcoming tour of Latin America will mark her final string of performances, as she shifts gears towards family and non-music related projects.
The chart-topping artist broke the news at a press conference to promote the tour, which kicks off April 9 in Uruguay: "These will be the last concerts I do, after I want to focus on my
daughter, who is going to high school and continue working in other
areas," said Estefan.
