Miami's Own Gloria Estefan to Introduce Cirque du Soleil in Super Bowl XLI Pregame Show Feb. 4 on CBS
International superstar and Miami resident GLORIA ESTEFAN will introduce CIRQUE DU SOLEIL'S pregame show at Super Bowl XLI on CBS at Dolphin Stadium in South Florida on Sunday, February 4, the NFL announced today.
Estefan is a five-time Grammy Award winning singer/songwriter who has performed at Super Bowl XXVI and Super Bowl XXXIII halftime shows, held in Minneapolis and Miami respectively. She is currently writing and recording a new album to be released later this year and is a New York Times best-selling author of two children's books.

The Cirque du Soleil performers will be a living, breathing canvas for Miami-based artist ROMERO BRITTO, whose signature pop-art has come to define the color and vibrancy of South Florida.
