Julio Iglesias – News, photos, videos, biography …


Julio Iglesias was born in Madrid on September 23, 1943 under the name Julio José Iglesias de la Cueva. With 78 records to his credit and more than 250,000,000 copies sold, he is undoubtedly the greatest Latin singer ever known to date.
Before getting into music, Julio exercised his talents as a goalkeeper in the very famous club Real Madrid. Unfortunately in 1960 his hopes of becoming a professional player were lost. A terrible car accident forces him to end his plans. During his convalescence, the handsome idalgo began to play guitar and singing. Son of a gynecologist, he finished his studies at Cambridge where he was a law student before entering a singing competition. His performance on La Viga Sigue egal, in the romantic crooner style, earned him victory.
In 1970, it was the release of his first album Sov. Immediately the young singer goes on tour first in Europe and then in the United States. But his popularity really exploded in 1975 with the title Manuela. Three years later, the CBS record company made him sign a contract. Multi-lingual singer (Spanish, French, Italian and English) Julio conquers the hearts of women all over the world or almost. In 1980, new album and new triumph with the album Hey followed a year later by From child to woman and Moments in 1982.
In 1983, England and America fell under the spell of his compilation Julio. But from 90, Julio Iglesias focuses on the Europe where he comes from and signs among others Por Una Mujer (1989), Love life (1990), Calorie (1992), La Carretera (1995), Corazon Latino (1998), Under my eyes (1999), and Noche de cuatro lunas (2000) …
Not content with a more than successful solo career, the artist has also shared many famous duets with the greatest international voices. Thus, he sang with Frank Sinatra, Paul Anka, Willie Nelson, Diana Ross, Ali-4-one, Dolly Parton, Arielle Dombasle, Dalida …
In 2007, in his last disc Something chosen from France, he performs with Françoise Hardy Leave anyway.
In his private life, Julio Iglesias was able to prove that he was a true lover of women. In 1971 he married Isabelle Preysler who gave him a daughter and two sons: Chábeli, Julio José and Enrique. They divorced a few years later. The crooner now lives with Miranda Rijnsburger, a Dutch model with whom he had three boys and two girls (twins). Julio Iglesias transmitted the music virus to his children, since two of his sons are also singers.
