The Broadway League's Viva Broadway initiative is an audience development partnership with the Hispanic community to help bridge the world of Broadway with Latino audiences around the country. The long-term initiative aims to "increase awareness about Broadway while culturally enriching lives, bringing families together, and building new careers in the theatre." Proceeds go towards The Broadway League's Family First Nights, a nationwide program specifically designed to encourage economically at-risk families to attend theatre on a regular basis.
With seven Grammy Awards and over 100 million albums sold worldwide, Gloria Estefan is the most successful Latin crossover performer in the history of pop music. In addition to her chart-topping hit songs "Conga," "The Rhythm is Going To Get You" and "1, 2, 3," among others, she recorded the Oscar-nominated song "Music Of My Heart" and has received numerous honors and awards over the course of her career. She has been presented with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, named BMI Songwriter of the Year and received an American Music Award for Lifetime Achievement, an MTV Video Music Award, two ACE Awards and multiple Billboard Awards for her chart-topping hits. Estefan has also been honored with the Ellis Island Congressional Medal of Honor (the highest award that can be given to a naturalized U.S. citizen), the Hispanic Heritage Award and the National Music Foundation's Humanitarian of the Year Award.
