President Barack Obama conveyed his harshest rebuke yet of Cuba's government last week and, hours later, Gloria Estefan protested repression in Havana from the streets of Miami.
Now, they'll be together again when the Cuban-born singer and her husband, Emilio, host Obama at their Miami Beach homeApril 15 for a Democratic National Committee fundraiser, when the president comes to Florida to talk about cuts to the NASA space program.
The $30,400-a-couple cocktail reception is the Estefans' first political fundraiser, said Democratic consultant Freddy Balsera, who advised Obama's campaign on Hispanic issues and is close to the couple.
It's not their first presidential encounter. Here's Gloria's Christmas interview with POTUS.
