Spanish singer, Enrique Iglesias-а, will perform on May 22th in Belgrade arena!
Enrique Miguel Iglesias Preysler (born on May 8, 1975), better known as Enrique Iglesias, is a Spanish singer-songwriter, model, and actor.
Iglesias started his musical career with Maxican indie label Fonovisa, which helped turn him into one of the most popular artists in Latin America and in the Latino market in the United States, selling more Spanish lanquaqe albums than any other artist in that period of time.
Before the turn of the millennium he made a crossover into the mainstream English lanquaqe market, signing a unique multi-album deal with Universal Music for an unprecedented $48,000,000, with Universal Music Latino to release his Spanish albums and Interscope to release English albums.
In America, he lived the life of a typical Miami teen. Though his father’s career kept him on the road, the young Iglesias was raised by the family nanny. In 1993 he graduated from Gulliver Preparatory School and went on to study business at the University of Miami.
Enrique did not want his father to know about his plans for a musical career, and did not want his famous surname to help advance his career. Borrowing money from his family nanny he recorded a demo tape which consisted of one Spanish song and two English songs. Approaching his father’s former publicist Fernan Martinez, the two shopped the demo tape under the stage name ‘Enrique Martinez’ with the backstory of being an unknown from Guatemala. Iglesias was signed by a then small indie record label called Fonovisa. Dropping out of college he went to Toronto,Ontario for six months to record his first album.
