(Enrique José Martín Morales; San Juan de Puerto Rico, 1971) Cantante puertorriqueño. Ya desde niño mostró su inclinación por el mundo artístico; empezó como modelo infantil y pronto ganó un premio por un anuncio de televisión de alimentos para niños. Al mismo tiempo participaba en el grupo de teatro y en el coro de su colegio.

En julio de 1984 entro a formar parte del grupo Menudo, con el que en 1986 grabó la telenovela Por Siempre Amigos. En dicho grupo permaneció hasta los 19 años, cuando inició su carrera como solista. Se trasladó a Nueva York y trabajó como modelo para sufragar sus estudios de canto y actuación.

Un año después se trasladó a México y fue contratado para la obra teatral Las Zapatillas Rojas. El éxito lo llevó a protagonizar Mi Mamá ama el Rock. Esto supuso el inicio de una carrera de éxitos imparable. Una importante cadena de televisión le pidió que participara en la serie Alcanzar una Estrella I y II, donde actuó junto a estrellas juveniles como Sasha, Bibi Gaytán, Angélica Rivera, Pedro Fernández y Erick Rubin. Fue tal el éxito de la telenovela que se lanzó a la venta un disco titulado Muñecos de Papel donde Ricky interpretó el tema Juego de Ajedrez, que tuvo una gran aceptación. Realizó una extensa gira por la República Mexicana para promocionar el disco y luego participó en la película Más que alcanzar una Estrella, por la que obtuvo el premio El Heraldo.

En 1991 grabó Ricky Martin, su primer disco como solista, del cual salieron seis sencillos que se colocaron entre los diez primeros lugares de las listas: Fuego contra fuego, Dime que me quieres, Susana, El amor de mi vida, Ser feliz y Vuelo. Gracias a esta primera producción, Ricky obtuvo ocho discos de oro en México, Chile, Argentina, Colombia, Puerto Rico y Estados Unidos. Con este álbum realizó una intensa gira por casi toda Latinoamérica, presentando un show con el que rompió récords de taquilla. En Venezuela recibió la Orquídea de Plata por su gran popularidad.

Debido al éxito del joven cantante, se creó una gran expectación en Brasil, donde en 1992 grabó un disco en portugués con Daniela Mercury. En febrero de 1993 tuvo una memorable participación en el Festival de Viña del Mar (Chile), donde obtuvo la Gaviota de Plata. En ese mismo año, de la mano de Juan Carlos Calderón, lanzó su segundo disco, Me Amarás.

En el mes de septiembre de 1993 se instaló en California para participar en la serie televisiva Getting by. En 1994, la cadena ABC lo contrató para la serie Hospital General, donde interpretaba al atractivo Miguel Morez. Desde entonces se convirtió en inspiración de modistos internacionales como Jean Paul Gaultier o Giorgio Armani y se le ha destacado como uno de los hombres más sexis del mundo.

Carlos Santana Latin Soul

sanata6

 

 

Delivered with a level of passion and soul equal to the legendary sonic charge of his guitar, the sound of Carlos Santana is one of the world’s best-known musical signatures. For more than four decades—from Santana’s earliest days as a groundbreaking Afro-Latin-blues-rock fusion outfit in San Francisco—Carlos has been the visionary force behind artistry that transcends musical genres and generational, cultural and geographical boundaries.

Long before the category now known as “world music” was named, Santana’s ever-evolving sound was always ahead of its time in its universal appeal, and today registers as ideally in sync with the 21st century’s pan-cultural landscape. And, with a dedication to humanitarian outreach and social activism that parallels his lifelong relationship with music, Carlos Santana is as much an exemplary world citizen as a global music icon.

Santana’s star arrived in the era-defining late 1960s San Francisco Bay Area music scene with historic shows at the Fillmore and other storied venues. The group emerged onto the global stage with an epic set at the Woodstock festival in 1969, the same year that its self-titled debut LP Santana came out. Introducing Santana’s first Top 10 hit, “Evil Ways,” the disc stayed on Billboard’s album chart for two years and was soon followed by two more classics — and Billboard #1 albums — Abraxas and Santana III.

Ever since, for more than forty years and almost as many albums later, Santana has sold more than 100 million records and reached more than 100 million fans at concerts worldwide. To date, Santana has won 10 GRAMMY® Awards, including a record-tying nine for a single project, 1999’s Supernatural (including Album of the Year and Record of the Year for “Smooth”) as well as three Latin GRAMMY’s.  In 1998, the group was ushered into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, whose website notes, “Guitarist Carlos Santana is one of rock’s true virtuosos and guiding lights.”

Among many other honors, Carlos Santana received Billboard Latin Music Awards’ 2009 Lifetime Achievement honor, and, he was bestowed Billboard’s Century Award in 1996.  On December 8, 2013 he was the recipient of the 2013 Kennedy Center Honors Award. Rolling Stone has also named him #15 on the magazine’s list of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time” noting that “Santana’s crystalline tone and clean arcing sustain make him the rare instrumentalist who can be identified in just one note.”  And, with the 2014 release of Corazón, Santana surpassed the Rolling Stones and, along with Barbara Streisand, is one of only two music acts in Billboard history to score at least one Top Ten album for six consecutive decades from the 1960s on.

Santana’s new album Corazón (RCA/Sony Latin Iberia) released May 6, 2014 is a collaborative effort with the biggest names in Latin music including ChocQuibTown, Lila Downs, Gloria Estefan, Fabulosos Cadillacs, Juanes, Ziggy Marley, Miguel, Niña Pastori, Diego Torres, Samuel Rosa of Skank, Cindy Blackman Santana, Romeo Santos, Soledad, Wayne Shorter, and more. This is Santana’s first Latin music album of his iconic career.  The album is certified U.S. Latin Double Platinum and was the top selling Latin Music album in the United States for six consecutive weeks. HBO Latino & HBO Latin America celebrated the release with multiple HBO specials through a two part TV event: a behind the scenes reality themed special called “Santana: De Corazón” and the airing of his mega concert and documentary “Santana-Corazón: Live From Mexico, Live It To Believe It.” On September 9, 2014 a DVD/Live CD of the event was released documenting the show in its entirety. Both specials, and the DVD, include performances from the all-star line up that graces the album Corazón.

In the fall of 2014, Carlos Santana released his memoir “The Universal Tone: Bringing My Story to Light” which offers a page-turning tale of musical self-determination and inner self-discovery, with personal stories filled with colorful detail and life-affirming lessons. It’s a profoundly inspiring tale of divine inspiration and musical fearlessness that does not balk at finding the humor in the world of high-flying fame, or at speaking plainly of Santana’s personal revelations and the infinite possibility he sees in each person he meets.

Beyond music, in the lifestyle and entertainment realm, River Of Colors (ROC) has enjoyed tremendous success with the Carlos by Carlos Santana and Unity by Carlos Santana brand names.  Founded in 1997, ROC is dedicated to bringing products to market that embody the passion and integrity of Carlos Santana—and that are true to his distinctive style and taste.  ROC’s endeavors encompass products including shoes, handbags, headwear and sparkling wine, as well as signature musical instruments including electric guitars and hand percussion instruments. ROC products are distributed at better retail stores internationally.

The arc of Santana’s performing and recording career is complemented by a lifelong devotion to social activism and humanitarian causes.  The Milagro Foundation, originally established by Carlos Santana and his family in 1998, has granted more than five million dollars to non-profit programs supporting underserved children and youth in the areas of arts, education and health. Milagro means “miracle,” and the image of children as divine miracles of light and hope—gifts to our lives—is the inspiration behind its name.
