Cuban American singer Gloria Estefan confirmed Wednesday, via Twitter, her upcoming participation in the successful musical television series Glee in the role of the mother of Cheerio Santana, played by Naya Rivera.
It is Rivera to whom Estefan directs her messages on Twitter: "I have to say that working with @NayaRivera was an amazing experience!"
In addition, Estefan has posted several photographs with part of the cast of the Fox series.
Also on her Twitter account, Estefan thanks the show's production team.
Other Latino performers who have joined the show in guest roles include Ricky Martin, in the role of a sexy Spanish teacher, and actress Ivonne Coll, who will play the mother of Gloria Estefan's character.
According to what Glee creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk have said, viewers of the programme have shown they are very interested in knowing about the parents of the main characters, and that was the reason that they decided to include the characters created for Estefan and Coll.
