Superstar Gloria Estefan has announced plans to take her life story to Broadway.

The Conga hitmaker and her producer husband Emilio Estefan have teamed up with theatre bosses at the Nederlander Organization in a bid to make a musical about their road to fame.

A statement from the couple reads, "We are very excited to share this story, which is based on hope, determination and the belief that with hard work and passion, our dreams can become our reality. Our music has been a true reflection of who we are, where we came from and the journey that has brought us to where we are today."

And executive Jimmy Nederlander is convinced the stage show will be a big hit: "The Estefans' journey of success, led by raw talent and passion, is captivating as it drove them from relative obscurity to global sensations."
