TRANSCRIPT

Gloria Estefan: I certainly hope so. I mean, it is inevitable that change will come. I hope it comes soon enough and that the Cubans end up being free enough because right now we are going to see it be tough for them to just suddenly be thrown into a whole new world that they don’t know, so it is going to happen little by little. But I do hope that they do experience freedom, and that is when I would love to perform there, in a day where I don’t have to ask the government permission or have anybody take repressive measures in any way, about me, against the audience, against anyone, and I would need that, I would need them to completely free. It is happening; it is going to happen. For none of us it is soon enough, but as long as it is in the best way for them particular candidate you think will be best.
