Julio Iglesias was the most popular Latin singer of the '70s and
'80s, selling over 100 million albums around the world. Julio Iglesias was a
smooth, romantic crooner and his appeal translated to many different countries
in many different languages.
Julio Iglesias originally planned to be a lawyer. As Julio Iglesias studied, he was a goalkeeper for the Real Madrid football team. His career as an athlete was ended after an automobile accident in the mid-'60s. While he was recovering, Iglesias started playing guitar and writing songs. Before he began a musical career, he finished his law studies at Cambridge University. In 1968, he was a contestant at the 1968 Spanish Song Festival at Benidorm, singing his original song "La Vida Sigue Igual." Iglesias won the first prize at the contest, which led to a record contract with Discos Columbia, an independent record label.
Julio Iglesias toured Europe and Latin America in the 1970s, gaining a large fan base with hits like 1975's "Manuela." By the end of the decade, he was extremely popular - so popular, CBS International sought out a contract with him. He signed with the label in 1978. Iglesias began to record not only in Spanish, but in Italian and French as well. At the turn of the decade, Julio Iglesias began to pursue the American and British markets by concentrating on his English recordings. His efforts began to pay off in 1981, when his cover of "Begin the Beguine" became a number one hit. It was quickly followed by the compilation record Julio, which became a big success in England and America. However, his major crossover success was 1984's 1100 Bel Air Place, a collection of duets. Featuring the Top Ten hit duet with Willie Nelson "To All the Girls I've Loved Before," the album sold over three million copies in America and peaked at number five on the pop charts; it also spawned "All of You," a hit duet with Diana Ross. Iglesias' popularity continued to grow throughout the '80s, although he only had one more pop crossover hit, 1988's "My Love," a duet with Stevie Wonder.
Julio Iglesias had stopped courting the English pop market and concentrated on recording mainly in Spanish by the 1990s. His popularity has not diminish at all in his third decade of recordings - he is still capable of selling millions of records and selling out concerts around the world.
Currently, Julio Iglesias is in the studio recording a new English Album titled "Romantic Classics" which is due out in September of 2006. Romantic Classics is a series of the greatest love songs in American culture, and features the hits "I want to know what love is", "Careless Whisper", and "Right Here Waiting" all major hits of the past 20 years. A series of promotional events, followed by a world tour will help promote the album after its release.
Julio Iglesias' web page is currently under construction, and will feature information from "Romantic Classics" when it is updated later this year.
Julio Iglesias' south Florida mansion on the exclusive, security obsessed, private Indian Creek Island is currently on the market for $28 million dollars making it one of "Ten Most Expensive Homes in the South" in 2006 according to Forbes Magazine.
