Stage musical planned around Gloria Estefan, husband

Gloria Estefan and her husband Emilio are hoping the rhythm is going to lead to Broadway.

The duo announced Tuesday that they have teamed up with the Nederlander Organization to try to create a musical based on their lives and take it to the Great White Way.

"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," Gloria and Emilio Estefan said in a statement.

The Estefans were both born in Cuba and together became musical luminaries in Spanish and English, winning Grammy Awards and fans across the U.S. with crossover hits like "The Rhythm is Going To Get You," "Conga" and "Words Get in the Way," in addition to helping the careers of other artists including Shakira, Ricky Martin, Jennifer Lopez, Marc Anthony and Jon Secada.

The show is still in its developing stages and organizers have yet to find a writer, director or creative team for the project.
