Raphael Background

Born Miguel Rafael Martos Sanchez, Raphael's family relocated to Madrid when he was just nine months old. He took up singing at the tender age of three. A year later, he joined a children's choir. And, when he was just nine years old, he was celebrated as the best child voice in Europe at a Salzburg, Austria, contest.

His professional career was launched when he inked a deal with the Dutch record label Philips. His first releases were "A pesar de todo" and "Te voy a contar mi vida." Raphael embraced his own signature style from the start; he is recognized for acting every one of his songs while performing on stage, underscoring his gestures with extreme dramatic effect. It is not uncommon for Raphael to improvise on stage, especially when localizing a tune to suit the venue he's singing at. He also embellishes his stage performance with Latin-American costumes, and he dances folk dances incorporating kicking and destroying a mirror or borrows from the moves of a bullfighter or flamenco dancer.

He additionally carries an expansive vocal range, which he frequently used at the start of his career as to educe a choirboy style for some songs.

At the prestigious Benidorm International Song Festival, Raphael claimed first, second and third awards with the songs "Tu Conciencia," "Llevan" and "Inmensidad" when he was only 19. Raphael represented Spain at the XII and XIII Eurovision Song Contest in 1966 and 1967. Although he didn't win, he took both 7th and 6th position. It was the first time in Spain's history that they ranked high in the contest. Shortly after, Raphael became a star with international acclaim. He took stages worldwide in Russia, Japan, Latin America, the United States and Europe. "Yo soy aquel" (his trademark song), "Mi gran noche," "Cuando tu no estas," "Tema de amor," "Digan lo que digan" and "Desde aquel dia" solidified his status as a world-class singing star.

Raphael additionally began a successful career as a film star. He appeared in Cuando tu no estas and Al ponerse el Sol, as well as Digan lo que digan, El golfo, El angel, Sin Un Adios and Volvere a nacer.

As Raphael's popularity grew in Latin America, he cut Latin American folk standards like "Sandunga," "Huapango torero" and "Llorona."

In the fall of 1970, Raphael made an appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show. He sang "Hava Nagila" and "Hallelujah." He performed again in December 1970 with the songs "The sound of the trumpet," "When my love is around" and "Maybe."

El Mundo de Raphael debuted in 1975, which was Raphael's own Spanish Television program. The program featured Raphael performing alongside other international stars. Raphael also led his own radio program. He and his wife conducted interviews with other extraordinary personalities. Raphael also included soap opera star on his resume. He was cast on the Mexican production of Donde termina el camino.

In the early 1980s, Raphael earned even more success with songs like "Como yo te amo" and "Estar enamorado." During 1984 and 1985, he cut a pair of albums with tunes penned by Jose Luis Perales such as "Estoy llorando hoy por ti" and "Amame."

In 1998, Raphael published a set of memoirs that covered his childhood to his marriage in 1972. And, in 2000, Raphael participated in Jekyll & Hyde, the stage musical, for seven months.

Today, Raphael continues to entertain around the world, captivating the attention of audiences wherever he goes.
