Ricky Martin’s rise to fame started when he was just 12 years old and performed in the band, Menudo. In 1999, Latin pop exploded into the US music scene when Martin performed “The Cup of Life,” which was the official song for the 1998 FIFA World Cup, at the 41st Grammy Awards. That same year, what can be described as Martin’s most iconic song “Livin’ la Vida Loca,” was released and paved the way for other aspiring Latin artists to make their marks in the English-speaking music world. Aside from singing, Martin has an impressive resume which boasts roles in hit tv shows like “General Hospital” and “Glee,” and he also penned his Best Selling autobiography, “Me.”
Ricky Martin has been a very busy man these past few years performing for audiences all over the world. His pulse and vibrant performances has made Martin a popular performer. “Throughout my career, I have been fortunate to be able to share my culture through music while creating an exciting atmosphere where you have no choice but to have the best time, to dance and sing until we forget all our problems, to let go and be completely free; this new show will not be the exception,” Martin said.
