Grammy-Winning Music Legend Julio Iglesias ‘Super Excited’ About Performing in Sharjah This Week
Julio Iglesias is “super excited” about performing for the first time at Al Majaz Amphitheatre in Sharjah this week, on Tuesday, May 3rd. “I am very happy and super excited to perform at Al Majaz Amphitheatre in Sharjah as I have been told that this is a great venue and I cannot wait to be there,” he said in response to queries from Sharjah Media Centre.
When asked about his relationship with music and what it means to him, the celebrated singer and songwriter said: “Music is my life. I cannot understand life without music. Everything I do in my life is related to music.”
Responding to the question if he thought his music resonated with values like peace, friendship, communication and respect, which are championed by Sharjah and the UAE, Iglesias said: “Of course I do. Music is the perfect instrument to bring people together no matter what borders, colour or creed they represent.”
Sharjah is all set to host Julio Iglesias, who has sold more than 300 million records in 14 languages and has 80 albums to his credit, making him one of the best-selling artists of all time, this week at the spectacular Roman colosseum-style Al Majaz Amphitheatre.
With a career spanning nearly five decades, Iglesias, who also happens to be the father of Latin pop sensation Enrique Iglesias, came up with ‘Julio Iglesias’ Milestones’ in 1970 and has not stopped wowing the world since. He holds two amazing Guinness World Book of Records distinctions for selling the largest number of records in most languages (1983) and the Best Selling Male Latin Artist (2013).
