Gloria Estefan's musical, entitled On Your Feet and based on the life of the dance music legend will make its debut on Broadway in 2015. We suspect the rhythm will finally get us this time.

Gloria revealed that the production leading towards staging the aptly-named musical will be accompanied by a reality TV show to cast the actresses who will play her. The worldwide search for Gloria is to cast the character at her teens, and in her twenties.

"It's going to be daunting, but I have no doubt whatsoever that we are going to be able to do it and so much fun to be a part of the processes," the 57-year-old Conga singer said.

The musical will see Gloria's rise to fame from her humble beginnings in Miami. The heart-tugging point of the musical could be in her overcoming the possibility of never walking or performing again after she broke her back in a tour bus accident in 1990.
