Alejandro Sánchez Pizarro, better known as Alejandro Sanz, is a Spanish Latin-pop singer-songwriter. Sanz has won three Grammy Awards and over 15 Latin Grammy Awards. He has received the Latin Grammy for Album of the Year three times, more than any other artist.
The singer is notable for his flamenco-influenced ballads and has also experimented with several other genres including pop, rock, funk, R&B, and jazz. Born in Madrid to parents from Andalusia, Sanz began playing guitar at age seven, taking influence from his family's flamenco roots.
Sanz released his debut album at age nineteen, although he did not gain commercial success in Spain until his second release, Viviendo Deprisa. His next two records, Si Tú Me Miras (1993) and 3 (1995) also fared well commercially, but it was his 1997 breakthrough album Más that garnered international success.
El Alma al Aire followed in 2000, selling more than a million copies in its first week. In 2002, he became the first Spanish artist to record an MTV Unplugged album. His collaboration with Shakira on the 2005 single "La Tortura" reached number one on several charts worldwide.
He experimented with more diverse styles of music with the albums No Es lo Mismo (2003) and El Tren de los Momentos (2006), while his 2009 release, Paraíso Express served as a return to form for the musician.
Sanz signed to Universal Music Group in 2011 and released his tenth studio album, La Música No Se Toca, in 2012, followed by Sirope in 2015. His twelfth studio album, #ElDisco, was released in 2019. #ElDisco was nominated for Best Latin Pop Album at the 62nd Grammy Awards.
