Über Miguel Bosé
Sexy, sophisticated and at times outrageous, Spanish singer Miguel Bose is one of the fathers of the current generation of Latin pop. The son of Spanish bullfighter Luis Miguel Dominguin and Italian actress Lucia Bose, he was born into the jet set, and became an instant pop star with his summer of 1977 hit, "Linda." In the eighties he abandoned bubblegum pop, lowering the tone of his singing voice and adopting a Bowie-esque style. He became associated with Madrid's underground movida movement and later played a transvestite in Pedro Almodovar's movie High Heels. In 2007, Bose made a return to the charts with his album Papito, a celebration of his thirty-year career featuring new versions of his past hits performed with guest artists including Shakira, Ricky Martin and Michael Stipe.
