Julio Iglesias on His Career and Wanting to Work with Justin Bieber
“Extra’s” Jerry Penacoli sat down with Latin singing legend Julio Iglesias, who is preparing to release the album “1," which highlights 45 years of his hit songs. Iglesias opened up about his career and who he would still like to work with.
The 69-year-old said his career-defining moment in America was the song, “To All The Girls I’ve Loved Before,” his duet with Willie Nelson. Julio explained, “I remember I couldn't speak English at all, and it took me a long time to sing, ‘To all the G-G-G-G.’ Now when I go back to that moment, I am very thankful because I think without that music, that song and Willie Nelson, I would not be here today.”
Speaking of duets, Iglesias said he would love to work several artists. “Justin Timberlake, Bruno Mars and Justin Bieber. I love that little guy... I was watching him the other day with the guitar singing and it was magic. He’s a guy who is going to stay on the road longer than people think.”
