Regarded as one of the world’s most popular singers, Julio Iglesias sang his first song, “La Vida Sigue Igual” at the National Singing Competition in Spain at age 25. By the ‘70s, Iglesias’ popularity soared throughout Europe and Latin America for his albums “Julio Iglesia,” “El Amor” and “Emociones.” In 1980, he set out to conquer the U.S and, within three years, Iglesias was performing before sold-out audiences at Radio City Music Hall and the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas. In 1983, with more than 100 million albums sold, Iglesias received the “Guiness Book of World Records” first Diamond Disc Award as the best-selling singer in the world. Ironically, Iglesias was never chosen to sing for his school choir.
