Emily Estefan is a musical artist of Cuban American descent. She is the daughter of producer Emilio Estefan and the Cuban singer Gloria Estefan, and has recently produced and directed her own debut album Take Whatever You Want.
Her public singing debut came in a 2014 performance of Where The Boys Are at the Hollywood Bowl. She also performed in front of a 100,000-person audience at the "Miami Beach 100 Centennial Concert" on March 26, 2015 and performed on national television for The Today Show with her mother on April 27, 2015.
At the time of her debut single release on December 2, 2015, Estefan was regarded as an accomplished drummer, guitarist, bassist, keyboardist and singer. Estefan wrote, recorded, produced and performed her debut album Take Whatever You Want at her very own Fairy Light Studios (Boston, Massachusetts). She founded her own music label Alien Shrimp Records—to not only launch her own music but to also serve as a home base for new and emerging artists. In 2016, she entered into a three-year partnership with RED Distribution via Alien Shrimp Records for the physical and digital distribution (U.S. and international) of the label's entire roster.
In February 2017, Estefan was selected as Elvis Duran's Artist of the Month and performed her hit "Reigns (Every Night)" on NBC's Today (hosted by Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford and broadcast nationally). Estefan performed her first major concert on February 2, 2017 at Gusman Concert Hall during the University of Miami Frost School of Music’s Festival Miami. She played drums, guitar, and keyboard, in various music styles. Following the concert, her album Take Whatever You Want was released at 12:01 AM. Later the same year, Estefan paid tribute to her mother (who was being honored for her distinguished music career) at the Kennedy Center Honors by performing the song "Reach."
