Biography

Famous singer that recorded 77 albums in 14 languages, Julio Jose Iglesias de la Cueva was born and brought up in Madrid. He was going to pursue the career of the lawyer or a soccer player - young Julio went in for soccer - but his fate had different plans. In 1963, Iglesias became the victim of the auto crash and needed three years for recreation. The doctors were afraid he would never walk again. During the lengthy recovery, Julio started to play the guitar. After he was healthy, he went to England to study English in Cambridge. In 1968, the singer debuted at the Spanish song festival Benidorm with the composition La Vida Sigue Igual - this appearance resulted in a contract with the Discos Columbia label for him. In 1970, Iglesias sang for Spain at the Euro Vision with the song Gwendolyne that gave him the fourth place. In 70's, album A Flor de Piel (1974) with the passionate love song Manuela along with the discs El Amor (1975) and Soy (1978) became the most significant of the singer's works.

In the beginning of 70's, Iglesias started dating with Isabel Preysler and married her. Their marriage gave Julio three children - his first son, Enrique, followed the way of his father and became an acknowledged singer. However, the marriage was over. In 1990, Julio met a new beloved, Miranda Rijnsburger - in May 2007, she gave birth to their fifth child. In 1978, Julio began performing in German, Italian, French and Portuguese. Three years later, he recorded his first hit in English Begin The Beguine, presented on the De Nina A Mujer album. The 1100 Bel Air Place disc, released in 1984, became Iglesias' breakthrough on the English-speaking countries market, including the USA. Romantic duet with Willie Nelson To All The Girls I've Loved Before and recorded with Diana Ross All Of You became the reasons for that success. In 1985, Julio's father was kidnapped, but he was brought back home in two weeks. This incident made the artist change his opinion on the security of his family. He moved to Miami, USA, and inhabited the thoroughly guarded mansion.

In 1988, his pop-work Un Hombre Solo brought the Grammy award to the artist. The same year Julio made a perfect duet with Stevie Wonder called My Love from the Non Stop full-length and headed to an extended world tour. In 90's, Iglesias came back to his Spanish roots with the wonderful disc Tango. This work of 1998 was nominated for the Grammy along with his son's album Vivir. This fact made Julio say that he would leave show business is Enrique outdid him. However, the Grammy went to the other nominee - Luis Miguel with his long-play Romances. In the beginning of 00's, the musician again became the favorite of public after he kissed three times the television host Susana Gimenez in the live show. This jest once more proved Julio's image of passionate and gentle heartbreaker. In 2003, his popular album Divorcio saw light. It was followed with the world support tour. In September 2006, Iglesias released his English album Romantic Classics. for this album, he cheery-picked his hits of 60's, 70's and 80's - like I Want To Know What Love Is, Careless Whisper, Right Here Waiting - and re-worked them.
