Gloria Estefan Inks Deal with Wilhelmina Artist Management
Muy caliente! Musical legend Gloria Estefan, the Queen of Latin Pop, has just inked a major deal with Wilhelmina International, which memorably signed the winner of America's Next Top Modelfor several cycles, and is still the home of Top Model alums like Whitney Thompson. The new partnership will allow Gloria to work on endorsement and licensing deals in collaboration with Wilhelmina, who also rep stars like Fergie and Olivia Palermo.
Wilhelmina Models president Sean Patterson gushed, "Gloria Estefan is one of the most recognized international talents in the world today. She is a timeless beauty and an icon." For her part, Gloria said that she's "excited about adding a new dimension to my career, one that compliments my lifelong passion of art and music."
Gloria just released her 26th (!) album, Miss Little Havana, helmed by major hitmaker Pharrell, including the single "WEPA" which went to #1 on Billboard's Hot Dance Club Songs chart. With this new Wilhelmina deal, she should be unstoppable. Congrats, Gloria!
