enrique iglesias biography

Enrique Iglesias is the best-selling Latin recording artist in the world. Born on May 8th, 1975, in Madrid, Spain, Enrique Iglesias began his career in 1995, when he was barely 20 years old and make his appearance in the music world with his first album, which he had been secretly planning since he was 16 without anyone, not even his family, knowing.

He has been on top ever since. In the first three months he sold his first million copies and he earned his first gold record in Portugal after three weeks on the market. He has recorded in Italian, Portuguese, English, Russian and, of course, Spanish. Enrique Iglesias is a perpetual jokester, sportsmanlike, enthusiastic, an old-fashioned romantic, an optimist, a devotee of the cinema, a loyal television viewer, and inveterate consumer of any and all music that falls into his hands. He hates photographs, phoniness, limousines, people with ulteriormotives and getting up early. Since the age of seven, he has lived in Miami, Florida, where he went to school, and he has enjoyed the best of three cultures: "Hispanic, European and American", each with its own musical influence, which is what interests him most.

Enrique Iglesias' music has also conquered Asia, where he has earned gold or platinum records in countries including Taiwan, Thailand and Singapore. He has also done intensive and successful promotional work. His face has appeared on over 250 magazine covers and he has recorded over 190 television programs in 23 countries.
