Biography of Alejandro Sans

Alejandro Sanchez Pizarro, better known by his stage name Alejandro Sans, was born in Madrid on December 18, 1968, to a family of Andalusian immigrants. His godfather, Manuel Alejandro, a renowned composer who has written many popular songs for Rafael, played a significant role in Alejandro's musical upbringing. It can be said that Alejandro has been connected to the world of music since his infancy.

At the age of seven, Alejandro started playing the guitar, and by the time he was ten, he had already composed his first songs. In his youth, he was expelled from school for bothering girls during breaks. In his defense, he argued that the girls were not really against it and even invited him. Despite his complicated relationships with the opposite sex, he eventually managed to complete his education.

After school, Alejandro pursued studies to become an administrator while also giving guitar lessons to support his education. He recorded a few songs and approached the record company Hispavox with them, but he was rejected as lacking potential. Surprisingly, several of the rejected songs later appeared on the album "Viviendo deprisa" and became hits.

Fortunately, Warner recognized Alejandro's potential as a future star and launched their marketing machine at full throttle. Firstly, his common surname, Sanchez, was replaced with the shorter and more memorable Sans. In 1991, Alejandro released his debut album "Viviendo deprisa," which earned him seven platinum records in Spain alone.

With active concert performances, periodic album releases, and songwriting for other artists, Alejandro became the idol of the youth. In the mid-90s, after a series of extensive tours, Alejandro conquered the Latin American music market. Spanish music industry professionals claim that to this day, only Alejandro Sans and Miguel Bose are capable of consistently filling stadiums during their concerts.
