Gloria Estefan to retire from singing at age 51


Grammy winning American singer Gloria Estefan has announced that her upcoming Latin America tour will be her last. "It is an end to something that began many years ago, in 1975, and it is a dream to be able to do it in Latin America," the singer said. "These will be the last concerts I do, afterwards I want to focus on my daughter, who is going to high school, and continue working in other areas." The 52-year-old veteran singer announced last year that she would be cutting back the amount of time she spends on tour in order to focus on spending time with her 14-year-old daughter, Emily Marie. However she insists that she she won't be bored with life at home because she has numerous other projects in her kitty, the Contactmusic.Com reported. "We have eight restaurants, three hotels; I am working on a third book and on films," the singer said. Estefan's final tour starts from April 9. She will perform in Uruguay, Chile, Argentina, Peru. Her final performance is scheduled for April 23 in Ecuador.
