Enrique Iglesias is unarguably one of the most popular Latino crooners today. His father is one great music legend so it would have been a walk over if he took on his father’s name but Enrique had more pride than that. He entered music pretending to be an unknown Guatemalan singer with the false surname “Martinez” as he wanted to forge a carer based entirely on his own talents. He is known by many as the ‘King of Latin Pop’ and is also a passionate lover of charity.
