Alejandro Sanz: 13 Stellar Songs From The Spanish Pop Star
Few artists in any genre — or any language — have been as successful and influential as Spanish singer/songwriter Alejandro Sanz. With 18 Latin GRAMMY and three GRAMMY wins to his name, Sanz's worldwide influence is truly massive.
His first recognition from the Latin GRAMMY recognition came in 2001 when he took home Album, Record and Song Of The Year honors for El Alma Al Aire and its title track. Since then, Sanz's star continued to rise, fueled by a prolific output of original music and several high-profile collaborations. He performed on the 44th Annual GRAMMY Awards with Destiny's Child in 2002, and at the Latin GRAMMYs he partnered with Shakira in 2006 on "La Tortura" and with Alicia Keys in 2009 on the English crossover "Looking For Paradise."
Earlier this year, Sanz was named the 2017 Latin Recording Academy Person of the Year, not only for his unparalleled success as an artist, but for his substantial philanthropic contributions to organizations such as Doctors Without Borders, Save the Children and Greenpeace, among others. The singer/songwriter will be honored during a prestigious gala on Nov. 15 at Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas.
