Julio José Iglesias de la Cueva aka Julio Iglesias (born September 23, 1943-) in Madrid is Spain's best selling singer in history and one of the best selling Hispanic singers of all time. Julio Iglesias has sold 250 million records and released nearly 80 records. He has performed approximately 5,000 concerts during his career
He was a professional soccer player with Real Madrid, where he played as goalie. During this time, he also enrolled in law school. He had an accident that dashed his hopes of becoming a great soccer player, but during his period in bed, he started to compose songs. He received a certificate as a lawyer from Cambridge University a little later.
In 1968, he won a songwriter's contest in Spain and signed a contract with a Columbia Records Latin music label, Discos Columbia. He entered the Eurovision Song Contest in 1970 for Spain finishing fourth behind Irish singer Dana and Mary Hopkins of England. He sand the song "Gwendolyne" which as the name of his first record. During the 1970s, he married the half Spanish-half Filipino girl Isabel Preysler and they had three children: Chabeli Iglesias, nowadays a former show host who is a news reporter in Washington D.C., Enrique Iglesias, now a world-famous singer who followed his father's steps, and Julio José Iglesias, a model who has released 2 CDs. It was during the 1970s that the Iglesias family's private life became of public knowledge, with Julio and the rest of the family on the covers of various international magazines many times.
Artist Biography - Julio IglesiasIn 1978, he signed a contract for CBS International, propelling him to add English, French and Italian to his language repertoire, because he recorded in those languages also under his new management. He achieved his first hit in English with a cover of "Begin The Beguine" and a compilation album Julio in 1983 building his reputation.
In 1984, he released the smash hit album 1100 Bel Air Place, which gave him considerable fame in English language markets. The album sold three million albums in the US alone with the first single "To All The Girls I've Loved Before", a duet with Willie Nelson reaching top five on the Billboard Hot 100. The album also featured "All Of You", a hit duet with Diana Ross.
In 1985, his father was kidnapped but found well and alive after two agonizing weeks. This prompted Julio, who had already divorced from Preysler, to move his family to Miami, where they settled in a mansion at Miami Beach. That year he also made duets with Diana Ross and Willie Nelson. It was rumored in 1986 that Julio, perhaps seeking to get away from all the fame and hoopla for one week, was found walking around the streets of Cayey, Puerto Rico after disappearing for seven days. Julio feels there is a deep connection between him and Puerto Rico because one of his grandmothers was from there.
Iglesias won a Grammy Award for Best Latin Pop Album in the 1988 Grammy Awards for the album Un Hombre Solo or "A Single Man". He also recorded a duet with Stevie Wonder on "My Love" from his Non Stop album which achieved crossover success in 1988.
Stories of Julio's expensive private jets, boats and houses became legendary during that decade, and his world tours took him to such places like Indonesia and Malaysia.
In the 1990s, Julio went back to his Spanish music roots and in 1996, he released the CD nicknamed Tango. He is slowly stepping out of the limelight now and enjoying his son Enrique's popularity, together with his long time companion Miranda and their baby daughter.
Julio is very amenable to sign autographs, although he can be a little difficult to reach sometimes, due to his and his family's security detail, which they have had since the 1985 kidnapping of Julio's father.
Iglesias returned to the headlines in October, 2003, when he went to Argentina and kissed show host Susana Gimenez three times on her mouth during a live telecast of her show.
Exactly 20 springtime's ago, Julio Iglesias won the hearts of American fans for the first time with "To All The Girls I've Loved Before," a duet with Willie Nelson that set the stage for two decades of romantic ballads and a career that has been filled with one record-setting achievement after another. For the first time, LOVE SONGS reaches deep into the Columbia album catalog of Julio Iglesias from the 1980s and '90s for 16 songs – every selection sung in English – whose theme is universal in every language.
In 2004 LOVE SONGS will arrive in stores June 1st as the latest addition to the best-selling series on Columbia Records, a division of Sony Music. The release coincides with Julio's annual spring-summer-tour itinerary of the U.S. The schedule kicked off with three nights at the Las Vegas Hilton (May 6-8th).
Julio Iglesias now joins the illustrious company of artists who have been featured in Sony Music's LOVE SONGS series since its launch in 1996 with the first of two volumes on Billie Holiday. Also included in the series are collections on Louis Armstrong, Michael Bolton, Dave Brubeck, Rosemary Clooney, Ray Conniff, Miles Davis, Earth, Wind & Fire, Duke Ellington, Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye, the Isley Brothers, George Jones, Patti Labelle, Loverboy, the Manhattans, Teena Marie, Johnny Mathis, Willie Nelson, the O'Jays, Colin Raye, Charlie Rich, Frank Sinatra, Toto, Andy Williams, Deniece Williams, Tammy Wynette, and Paul Young.
2004 not only marks the 20th anniversary of "To All The Girls I've Loved Before" (which debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 of March 3, 1984) but also marks the 30th anniversary of Julio's original signing to CBS Records in Spain, who released his first album for the label (A Flor de Piel) in 1974. LOVE SONGS commemorates Julio's ascension as a Columbia recording artist, taking stock of one of his other great duets, the often overlooked "When You Tell Me That You Love Me." The song was introduced by Diana Ross in 1991, and recorded by Julio with Dolly Parton three years later on the album entitled Crazy, named for the title tune written by Willie Nelson and made famous by Patsy Cline.
LOVE SONGS covers nearly a decade and a half, with tracks ranging from the classic Willie Nelson duet up through 1998's "Crazy In Love," his remake of the Country hit introduced by Kim Carnes ten years earlier, and later recorded by Conway Twitty, Kenny Rogers, Joe Cocker and others.
