Latina singer Gloria Estefan kicked off her final American tour in Texas on Friday (30JUL04).

The ANYTHING FOR YOU singer, 46, is quitting life on the road in order to spend more time with her daughter EMILY, nine, who is growing up fast.

Gloria says, "She (Emily) is going to be 10 in December (04) and I want to be there to do the day-in and day-out."

However, Estefan has reassured fans she will still be recording music from the home she shares with GRAMMY-winning husband EMILIO.

The LIVE AND REWRAPPED TOUR concludes in Miami, Florida on 25 September (04).
