From the comfort of her own home while in self-quarantine, Gloria Estefan sent an important message about the novel coronavirus disease. With a touch of humor, the Cuban-American singer launched a new song called “Put On Your Mask,” to the beat of her 1989 hit “Get On Your Feet.”
“Put on your masks, when you go out in public / Put on your masks, help save the world from COVID,” she sang on the catchy chorus.
The two-minute song, which she worked on with her trusty sidekick Heather Beltran and sound engineer Juan Arreguin, brings to light the current global pandemic and the importance of following the safety guidelines. The idea was born from Estefan’s real doctor, who asked her to create something funny to encourage people into wearing masks when in public doing their essential duties.
