Date of Birth: April 3, 1956
Miguel Bosé is a singer and musician. He was born in Panama, Republic of Panama. But his nationality is Spanish. His father, Luis Miguel Dominguín, worked as a bullfighter, while his mother, Lucía Bosé, was a renowned actress of Italian origin.
Miguel was raised in a privileged environment, where he had access to culture and art. From a very young age, guided by his mother, he felt a great interest in acting, in fact, during his life he performed some acting roles. Although, he later changed his mind discouraged because his efforts did not give prompt results. For various reasons, at the age of fourteen he rejected the role of the young Tadzio that his godfather, the Italian filmmaker Luchino Visconti, had offered him within the cast of his famous Death in Venice (1970).
He studied high school at the French Lyceum in Madrid, there he played his first film roles in some films of little recognition and budget, shot by the Italian Luccio Tessari. Upon graduation, the young man decided to locate his residence in London, where he began to study theater and dance as a student at the prestigious Lindsay Kemp School of Dance and Mime. Actually, Bosé had the opportunity to study in prestigious institutes thanks to the considerable fortune and good relations of his parents. Also, he had the opportunity to go to Paris to study dramatic art (at the Maurice Béjart School of Dance).
He also studied declamation in Rome and dancing and singing in New York, where he even perfected his acting training at the prestigious Actor’s Studio. These trips allowed him to get to know different cultures up close and also to learn other languages in an acceptable way. When he returned to Spain he made the decision to venture into music, and in 1975 he debuted as a professional singer with a modest single entitled Soy, the production and release were in charge of one of his first discoverers, the vocalist Camilo Sesto. But, this production and the following went unnoticed by the public and the critics.
It was in 1977, when Miguel Bosé quickly became the idol of adolescent girls throughout Spain when he interpreted the song Linda, by the Italians I Pooh, in Spanish. This theme was recorded and became a resounding success. Then, the song also gave title to his first LP, launched Miguel Bosé to stardom and marked the style of his first years on the path of music: characterized by sweet, friendly and commercial melodies, in short, something that seemed very attractive was her sensual dance. Thanks to Linda it was also described as a sex-symbol of teenage girls.
He released his second LP under the title of Miguel Bosé (1978), we must mention that Anna was his new commercial success, the young singer crossed the borders of the Spanish market to occupy the charts in several European countries. Shortly after, Bosé released “Chicas!” (1979), and returned to occupy the first positions in sales with a theme of overwhelming success: Super Superman. Starting in the 1980s, there was a boom in male performers who tried to take advantage of Bosé’s fame to emerge. Although many succeeded, it was very complex to live up to this singer who became a phenomenon on the European music scene.
Every time he sang in different languages in his galas and presentations, his albums occupied an important space in the world. In his massive tours he had to sing many of his famous songs, for example: Más tú (1981), Bravo Muchachos (1982), Made in Spain (1983) and Milano Madrid (1983). All these albums continued to preserve the freshness and commercial lightness of Spanish and reaffirmed its status as a sex symbol. Bosé decided to carry out a drastic change in his musical style and in his image. The album in which this change took shape, titled Bandido (1984), had the collaboration of lyricists and instrumentalists. His fame was such that the record label, Warner Music, reinforced Miguel Bosé’s new image with two LPs, Salamandra (1986) and XXX (1987). Later, he released another highly successful album, called The Boys Don’t Cry (1990). Although his records were good, they did not reach the popularity of the first hits. Bosé did some work on the big screen. He was in Pedro Almodóvar’s High Heels (1991), which allowed him to relaunch his musical career.
Later, he released Bajo el signo de Caín (1994), an album where he took advantage of the material and artistic returns of his recent cinematographic triumphs. Miguel Bosé had the collaboration of flamenco artists, such as the members of the Ketama group. The same style is perceived in Labyrinth (1995). While involved in several television projects, he recorded eleven great Latin music songs, which were released under the suggestive title of Once ways to put on the hat (1998).
Bosé directed Séptimo de Caballería, a program broadcast by Spanish Television. The program admitted all kinds of artists and musical styles, alternating the performances with the interviews that Bosé conducted with the different singers and musicians. In 1999 he received the Music Award for Best Television Program, but later his program began to be relegated by viewers. Bosé, was away from the world of fame due to a strong car accident that occurred in Extremadura.
After his recovery, he undertook a new artistic and professional project in the year 2000, when the singer Ana Torroja (ex-vocalist of Mecano), collaborated with him on a very long tour of concerts on stages throughout Spain and numerous places in Latin America. Starting the 21st century, Bosé released Sereno (2001), a more commercial album, in which he left testimony of different personal experiences. Serrat received the Special Award from the Spanish Recording Industry for his contribution to music, within the Amigo Awards ceremony. The following year, for Sereno Latin Grammy 2002 for Best Album performed by a male soloist.
He released Por vos muero (2004), then Velvetina (2005), a musical work close to such modern and complex musical styles as dance, trip hop and chill out. The result was a product of attractive quality, the disc was received with enormous success in numerous Latin American countries. Clearly, his facets as an actor and television presenter have also contributed to reinforcing his musical successes. The singer assured that after the birth of his last two children in 2011, Diego and Tadeo, he decided to put aside the life of harmful excesses: alcohol and cigarettes. Although, he assured that he was never irresponsible with his career due to these addictions.
