On Thursday (June 30), Berklee College of Music announced Latin superstars Emilio and Gloria Estefan as new members of the school's board of trustees.

The Grammy and Latin Grammy-winning artists have been part of the Berklee family since 2007 when they received honorary degrees. In 2012, Gloria served as keynote speaker at the Berklee Teachers on Teaching conference. The power couple's daughter, Emily Estefan, is also a Berklee alum.

Most recently, Gloria and Emilio appeared at the 2016 Tony Awards, where their Broadway musical On Your Feet, based on the Cuban artists' life, was nominated for Sergio Trujillo's choreography.

Gloria, along with the cast, performed the hit song "Conga," even getting Hamilton's Lin-Manuel Miranda on his feet. Check it out below:
