Born Enrique Martin Morales, Ricky Martin is a Puerto Rican celebrity, who was born on 24th December, 1971. Martin is an actor, singer, songwriter, and also an author. Martin earned celebrity status at a young age. In fact, he became somewhat famous when he first started acting in television advertisements at the age of nine. His singing career started at the mere age of 12, in 83, when he became a part of an all-boy pop group called Meundo. He was a part of the pop band for five years before he left and started producing solo Spanish albums all throughout the 90’s. He even received role offers for Mexican movies. It should come as no surprise that once he started accepting, Martin became a Mexican superstar in no time at all. He even starred in American shows as well, such as the soap opera General Hospital in 1994. Towards the late 1990’s, he performed ‘The Cup of Life’ at the 41st Grammy Awards. Martin’s success took off after the performance. He’s been a major influence in Latin pop in the US from that moment. Eventually, Martin became extremely famous internationally.
