Julio Iglesias (born September 23rd 1943) is a singer/songwriter from Madrid, Spain, who has gone on to become the world's best-selling artist in Latin music history.
Hugely popular, Iglesias is a global superstar, having sold over 300 million albums worldwide and releasing over 80 albums. His smooth crooning and good looks oozes a suave, romantic image that has had widespread appeal, enjoying a career that has spanned six decades.
In his youth, Iglesias was a talented footballer, receiving an offer from Real Madrid to train with the team. However, his career was cut short following a car accident that caused a severe spinal injury that left him in rehabilitation for two years. Although it was in recovery that Iglesias developed his passion for music, teaching himself guitar and writing his first songs.
Success came quick to Iglesias, winning the International Song Festival in Spain, which earned him a recording contract with Columbia Records in 1968. His recording of "La Vida Sigue Igual" was his first number one hit, reaching the top spot in Spain. Following this, he broke onto the European scene, representing Spain for the Eurovision Song Contest, finishing in fourth place.
With a keen talent for languages, Iglesias has been able to break into several different markets, recording music in 14 languages, which has allowed him to become popular throughout Europe and South America. Despite his global success, it was a while before Iglesias broke into America. Following a sold-out concert in Madison Square Garden, New York, US in 1976 and a duet with Willie Nelson on the song, "To All The Girls I've Loved Before," Iglesias broke into the American market and by 1984, he was an established star. His album "1100 Bel Air Place" sold over three million copies, cementing his position as an international superstar.
Iglesias began to tailor his music towards an American audience throughout the 80s and 90s, as well as continuing his commitment to his Latin audience with his 1996 album, "Tango." His productivity slowed down towards the end of the 90s and at the start of the new millennium. But Iglesias continued to perform extensively to huge audiences and remains a treasured musician globally. On April 23rd, 2013, his contributions were recognised through his induction into the Latin Songwriters Hall of Fame.
