Hunky Latin singing sensation Enrique Iglesias will be swiveling his hips and crooning to the masses on May 31 at the Nokia Arena in Tel Aviv.

The 35-year-old son of Julio Iglesias is one of the most popular singers in the world with countless Spanish and English hits to his credit. With matinee idol looks and his father’s vocal talents, Iglesias burst onto the music scene in the mid-1990s, and by 1997, had sold 17 million Spanish-language albums and won the 1996 Grammy for Best Latin Performer.

That was only the beginning, however, because when he began to release albums recorded in English, beginning with 1999’s Enrique, he became a global phenomenon.

Since then, he’s alternated between English and Spanish albums, but last year released his ninth record, Euphoria, his first bilingual album, and another blockbuster.

If his looks and talent weren’t enough to keep him in the gossip columns, Iglesias has been the main squeeze for tennis star Anna Kournikova for the last decade.

There may not be Beatlemania breaking out at the Nokia Arena in May, but there will undoubtedly be lots of screaming going on.
