"Renacer" (Reborn) is a single released by Gloria Estefan. It was released in 1990 worldwide as the only single of the album Exitos de Gloria Estefan.

Song history[edit]

This song was first recorded by Egberto and Maria De Lourdes Garcia (siblings from Ecuador) then later Miami Sound Machine made it their first single, but they did not have any success with this song. An English version, "Live Again," was also recorded. Later Gloria re-recorded and eventually released the song, and it went to the Top Ten of the Hot Latin Tracks Chart.

The Spanish Version of "Oye mi Canto (Hear my Voice)" was used as b-side of the single. This song was covered by Mexican singer Luis Miguel in 1990, however, was never included on his albums.
