This seven-time Grammy award winner has been a favorite Latin female vocalist over the span of three decades. Beginning her career with the Miami Sound Machine, Estefan was a solo act by the 1990s, recording music in both English and Spanish.
- Shakira This Columbian superstar first mesmerized the world when she started shaking her belly dancing hips in the early 1990s. Over the course of her music career, Shakira has produced albums in English and Spanish in a variety of genres to suit any taste.
