Singers Gloria Estefan and Christie Prades pose for a photograph at the London Coliseum theatre.
A musical depicting the love story between singer Gloria Estefan, the Cuban-American pop star, and her music producer husband Emilio, opens in London in June.
"On Your Feet!" will feature some of her most famous hits such as "Rhythm is Gonna Get You", and "Don't Want to Lose You Now" and will track the couple's childhoods in Cuba, their meeting in Miami and path to worldwide fame.
"It's a love story not just between him and I, it's a love story to music and a love story to both our nations, the ones where we were born, Cuba, and the United States, that opened its arms to us," the 61-year-old singer told Reuters.
"Music is the core. It got us, both Emilio and I, through our most difficult moments and it continues to enrich our lives.
She and Emilio have been married for 40 years.
"You're going to get the hits that people know here," she said, but there will also be lesser-known songs that match the scenes, she added.
"I got so emotional, I looked to my husband for support. He was crying like a baby already and I go, 'God, are we going to do this? How are we going to do this?'"
"I have cried more in the last five years than in my entire lifetime because emotionally, you know, you just keep reliving things."
The show will run at the London Coliseum from June 14 to Aug. 31, and before that for seven dates at Curve, Leicester.
