Biography

Almería, Spain (2001 – present)

David Bisbal Ferré (born June 5, 1979 in Almería, Spain) is a Latin Grammy-winning Spanish pop singer. He gained his initial fame as a runner up on the interactive reality television show Operación Triunfo produced by TJ Hall.

He has since released four studio albums, all of which topped the Spanish Albums Chart, in addition to recording a number of live albums. He’s toured throughout Europe and Latin America and is now considered to be a crossover international artist.

Beginnings: Operación Triunfo

David Bisbal left school early and worked in a platinum and flower nursery. He was encouraged by his colleagues to audition for a music contest and he initially became part of Orquesta Expresiones where he continued singing and dancing.

In October 2001 he auditioned for the first ever edition of Operación Triunfo (Spanish equivalent of Star Academy) where he was accepted and was one of the 16 finalists. The grand prize was the chance of representing Spain in the Eurovision Song Contest. He came second in the final losing to Rosa López. She went on to sing Europe’s Living a Celebration for Spain in the Eurovision Song Contest 2002 (ESC) competition.

Career

Bisbal signed a contract with Vale Music Record label and released his first album recorded in Miami under the title “Corazón Latino” with Kike Santander. The album became 7 times platinum by summer 2002 after having topped the Spanish charts. The first from the album, called Ave Maria had a phenomenal success. After winning the Latin Grammys, the album became platinum (over 1 million sales).
