Sasha, who is Nayib Estefan and Lara Coppola's son, stood by his famous grandmother's side as she sang a medley of some of her greatest hits, per NBC News.The “Rhythm Gonna Get You” singer was also joined by her husband, Emilio Estefan, as she said from the stage, “Music has saved my life.”

Emilio Estefan was seen embracing his grandson at one moment during Gloria Estefan’s performance.

Sasha is no stranger to the spotlight. The youngster is a singer himself and was featured on his grandmother’s 2022 holiday album, “Estefan Family Christmas.” He took the lead singing “It’s a Marshmallow World.”

"He’s got this innocence in his voice, and it really came through on that song. And singing with his grandson for him was incredibly special," Gloria Estefan told People in December 2022, adding, “Since Sasha was little, he loved to put together little shows for the family after dinner.”
