Spaniard Alejandro Sanz (born Alejandro Sánchez Pizarro) is the second son of María Pizarro Medina from Alcalá de los Gazules and Jesús Sánchez Madero from Algeciras. Even when he began playing guitar at the age of seven and composing his first songs three years later, the young musician started attending management classes after moving from the neighborhood of Pueblo Nuevo to Moratalza.

At the age of 16, Alejandro Sanz recorded Los Chulos Son Pa' Cuidarlos. However, his official debut, called Viviendo Deprisa, came in 1991 after signing up with Warner Music. Si Tu Me Miras followed in 1993, featuring contributions from Nacho Maño, Chris Cameron, and Paco de Lucia. With 3, recorded in Venice, Italy, and produced by Miguel Angel Arenas and Emanuele Ruffinengo, the Spanish singer/songwriter achieved international top-selling status.

His next album, Más (1997), launched him internationally, with famous singles such as Corazón partío and Amiga mía. It also became the most sold record of all time in Spain, with almost 3 million copies sold. In 2001 he released El Alma Al Aire which broke into the Billboard Hot 200 in the United States for the second time, as Más had done before. His 2003 album No Es Lo Mismo won a 2004 Grammy Award for best Latin pop album.In 2005, the song "La Tortura" was displayed to the public, a duet by Sanz and Colombian songstress, Shakira.
