Updated on August 19, 2014

Enrique Iglesias Early Years

Enrique Iglesias was born on May 8, 1975 as Enrique Miguel Iglesias Preyslar. Iglesias was born in Madrid, Spain to singer Julio Iglesias and journalist Isabel Preyslar. Iglesias is the youngest of three children to Julio Iglesias. Iglesias's parents divorced in 1979 and Enrique remained with his mother in Spain. However, in 1986 Iglesias's grandfather was kidnapped by a terrorist group and Enrique and his brother Julio Jr. were sent to live with his father in Miami, Florida.

When living with his father in Miami, Enrique was mostly raised by his nanny, who was also the woman Iglesias dedicated his first album too. Since Iglesias was raised in both Spain and America he speaks fluent Spanish and English.

Iglesias On His Own

When Enrique Iglesias decided that he wanted to begin a singing career of his own, he did not want to be in his father's shadow. Enrique also did NOT want the fact that he was Julio Iglesias's son to help him get a record deal. Enrique wanted to get a record deal on his own without the help of his father or his family name.

In order to record his demo tape, Enrique borrowed money from his beloved nanny and created a demo tape. He recorded a Spanish song and two English songs under the name of Enrique Martinez. Enrique approached his father's old publicist and his father's publicist promoted Enrique as an unknown singer from Guatemala and was signed on the Mexican label Fonovisa. Enrique achieved all of this without his father's help and without the use of the Iglesias name.

Enrique Iglesias: First Album

Iglesias released his first album in 1995. The album went gold and sold more than a half a million copies in its first week. Iglesias won a Grammy Award for Best Latin Pop Performance and released the Spanish speaking singles "Si Tu The Vas", "Experiencia Religiosa", "Por Amarte", and "No Llores Por Mí."

Iglesias: More Albums

In 1997 and 1998 Iglesias released two more albums titled "Vivir" and "Cosas del Amar." Three singles from "Vivir" topped the Latin Singles charts. The songs were "Enamorado Por Primera Vez", "Sólo en Ti" and "Miente."


In 1998 Iglesias released his third album "Cosas del Amar" and it helped cement his place in Latin Music. Iglesias had two more hit singles from his third album called "Esperanza" and "Nunca Te Olvidaré",

Iglesias Crosses Over to English

By 1999, Iglesias was beginning to make the transition from Spanish speaking albums to English speaking albums. In 1999, Will Smith attended one of Enrique's concerts and Smith liked Iglesias so much that he asked him to contribute a song on his "Wild Wild West' soundtrack. Enrique recorded the song "Bailamos" and it became a number one hit in the USA.

After having mainstream success with "Bailamos", many big record labels were anxious to sign Iglesias. Iglesias went on to sign with Interscope Records and released his first English speaking album "Enrique." The album contained the singles "Rhythm Divine", "Sad Eyes", and "Could I Have This Kiss Forever."

Enrique Iglesias Finds Success in the 2000s

In 2000 Iglesias performed on Super Bowl XXXIV with fellow performers Christina Aguilere, Phil Collins, and Toni Braxton. Iglesias went on to have another successful hit single "Be With You" and in 2001 he released his next album "Escape."

Enrique's "Escape" album provided Iglesias's with his most successful single to date "Hero." Which became a staple on radio stations around the world and was an anthem after Sept. 11.


Enrique went onto release five more albums in the 2000s. Iglesias had further success with the singles "Do You Know", "I Like It" , "Tonight I'm Loving You", and "Turn the Night Up"

Awards

Enrique Iglesias has gone on to win more than 16 Billboard Music Awards and 26 Billboard Latin Music Awards. He has also won 5 America Music Awards, one Grammy, one Latin Grammy, and 10 World Music Awards.

Iglesias has been on 12 world tours, and has co-headlined a tour with Jennifer Lopez in 2012.

      (Paperback) The Blog:Bad Time for Poetry The Blog: Bad Time for Poetry was taken from a relatively short real intnreet blog maintained by Enrique Martinez Celaya during the period from August 24, 2007 to May 25, 2009. The limited sixty-nine entries have a broad range of topics intended to read much more like a personal journal instead of a blog that creates an artistic following. The Blog offers a glimpse into the mind of Martinez Celaya and the complexities that may exist there and are intended to challenge those who read them in a way that turns their thoughts inward on how one behaves in the artistic culture. During some entries, the reader may find strong intellectual opinions of artistic critics, touching personal events of friends and family, refreshingly honest statements, however blunt they may be, about personal responsibility for personal failures and scattered references to Martinez Celaya's own personal insecurities about his works. The Blog seems more of a cultural call-to-action for readers and artists as much as for the artist himself.
