This helped turn him into one of the most popular artists in Latin America and in the Hispanic or Latino market in the United States, and the biggest seller of Spanish language albums of the 1990s. in 1985, Iglesias’ grandfather, Dr. Julio Iglesias Puga, was kidnapped by the terrorist group ETA. He borrowed money from his family nanny and he recorded a demo cassette tape which consisted of a Spanish song and two English songs. His song ” Por Amarte” was included in Televisa’s telenovela Marisol, but with a twist: instead of Por amarte daría mi vida (To love you, I’d give my life), the words were Por amarte Marisol, moriría (To love you, Marisol, I’d die). The CD also yielded Italian and Portuguese editions of the album, with most of the songs translated into those languages. The album went on to win Iglesias a Grammy Award for Best Latin Pop Performance. He won an American Music Award in the category of Favorite Latin Artist against Ricky Martin and Los Tigres del Norte.
