Music legend Gloria Estefan has found comfort in the lyrics of “Summer Breeze” by Seals and Crofts over the course of the pandemic. “It literally talks about walking up to your house and hugging the person that loves you after a long day,” she said.
Estefan, who has an olfactory connection to music, says listening to the song reminds her of the scent of freshly cut grass that she remembers while listening to it in the eighth grade.
