Enrique Iglesias - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Enrique Miguel Iglesias Preysler (born May 8, 1975) is a Spanish pop singer-songwriter. His career started in Mexico on Indie label Fonovisa who helped turn him into one of the most popular artists in Latin America and in the Latin market in the United States, selling more Spanish albums than any other artists in that period of time. Before the turn of the millennium he made a crossover into the mainstream English market and signed a unique multi-album deal with Universal Music for an unprecedented $48,000,000, with Universal Music Latino to release his Spanish albums and Interscope to release English albums, Enrique Iglesias has so far sold over 47 million albums worldwide.

By the way, the first time I heard of him was when he beat Ricky Martin... in one of your top awards shows:

In 1998, Iglesias released his third album, Cosas del Amor (Things of Love)....

He won an American Music Award in the category of Favorite Latin Artist against Ricky Martin and Los Tigres del Norte.

Hey go to town.

I'll apologize to poor kcurie on your behalf.  I've obviously stirred something deep within your soul, something which you feel compelled to work out here in front of millions. ;-)

"The Americas" and "America" are not interchageable terms.

The Euro Cup finals are quite a way down from the Olympic Games, you know...

Also, choosing someone from Miami avoids uncomfortable issues about choosing this or that European country over others...

Nobody expected the Spanish Inquisition!

And he's from Miami for all intents and purposes.
