Enrique Miguel Iglesias Preysler was born on May 8, 1975 in Madrid, Spain, the third and youngest child of singer Julie Iglesias and journalist Isabel Preyslert. Isabel Prysler’s aunt is Neile Adams, who was Steve McQueen’s ex-wife, so Iglesias is related to Steven R. McQueen, even through a chain of cousins. 

In 1986, Enrique’s grandfather was kidnapped by the Basque terrorist group ETA, causing Enrique’s sister Julie to send him to Miami to live with her father for safety reasons. Enrique’s father became more and more involved in his musical career, so you could say that little Enrique was raised by the family’s nanny. he attended Gulliver Preparatory School, where he performed in the play Hello, Dolly, showing off his skills. His mother is ethnically Filipino, but Enrique does not speak Tapalog,

He later studied business at the University of Miami. Iglesias did not want his father to find out about his plans in the field of music, and he did not want his father to make him famous. He borrowed money from a good friend of the family and independently recorded his own song, which consisted mostly of Spanish tracks, but also included two English tracks. After leaving university, he traveled to Toronto, where he was able to release his first album.

1995–1996: Enrique Iglesias

On July 12, 1995, Iglesias released his Enrique Iglesias album, which featured several soft rock ballads including Si Tú Te Vas and Experiencia Religiosa. His album was bought by more than half a million people in the first week, and in the following month the sales list was over a million.

Her song “Por Amarte” also became the theme song of the soap opera Marisol. The CD of his first album was “improved” by the Italians and the Portuguese since most of the tracks were translated into their own languages. Several tracks were released as a sampler from the album, which led to a number-one spot on Billboard’s Latin charts. The album was such a hit that it won the Grammy Award for Best Latin Pop Performance.

1997-1999: Vivir and Cosas Del Amor

In 1997, Iglesias continued his music career and released his album Vivir, which became such a big seller that Erique became one of the biggest singers in the English language. The album included tracks such as the Yazoo song “Only you”, whose Spanish translation is “Solo en Tí”.

Three songs from the Vivir album, Enamorado Por Primera Vez, Sólo en Ti and Miente, were released, and with their help Iglesias entered the Latin charts and in several countries where the official language was Spanish. With the support of his father and Luis Miguel, he was nominated for the Favorite Latin Artist category at the American Music Award.
In 1998, he released his new album, Cosas Del Amort. The album brought another success for Iglesias, as the most popular songs from the album were “Esperanza” and “Nunca Te Olvidaré”, which immediately entered the Latin singles chart, and this helped him to stabilize his position.

Iglesias went on a short tour interspersed with smaller stops, one of which was Acapulco, Mexico, where the series Paula and Paulina was filmed. This was followed by a tour of a much larger caliber, funded by McDonald’s.

He won the American Music Award in the Favorite Latin Artist category, beating Ricky Martin and Chayanne. The number he performed was Nunca te Olvidaré, which was also used in a Spanish opera.

1999–2001: Enrique and Escape

By 1999, Iglesias had become one of the most successful performing artists in the music market, thanks to Ricky Martin and Gloria Estefan, among others. In March 1999, Will Smith attended his concert and asked if he would do the theme song for Enrique’s movie Wild Wild West. His song ” Bailamos ” reached number one in America.

After the success of Bailamos, Iglesias was attacked by several well-known record companies in order to sign a contract with them for the young Latin musician. Finally, after several weeks of negotiations, Iglesias signed a contract with a company called Interscope. The man also recorded his first album, which contained only English-language songs, and the album was called Enrique. The album includes the song “Rhythm Divine” and “Could I Have This Kiss Forever”, which he sang with Whitney Houston.

In 2000, Iglesias performed at Super Bowl XXXIV alongside Christina Aguilera, Phil Collins and Toni Braxton. It was a shocking experience when Howard Stern repeatedly played Enrique’s song on his radio show, and finally accused the man of not being able to sing live. On June 8, 2000, Iglesias appeared on Stern’s show, where he played the guitar himself and showed off his musical skills. The second song from the album was “Be With You”, which reached number one on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart.

Escape became one of the biggest advertising albums. The next song to be released from the album was Escape and Don’t Turn Off The Lights, which soon topped the radio charts, not only in North America but around the world. Another track from the album was “Maybe”, which is in principle one of Iglesias’ favorite tracks, and the track “To Love a Woman”, which is sung together with Lionel Richie.

Iglesias organized the tour of his most successful album, which was called the One-Night Stand World Tour: the tour included more than 50 shows in 16 countries. The tour visited countries such as Great Britain and Romania. The second tour, “Don’t Turn Off The Lights” ended in the summer of 2002, when he gave two huge concerts, first in Madison Square, and later two more in Mexico at the National Auditorium.
