Ricky Martin entered the scene as one of the many talented youngsters in Latin boy group Menudo, who were one of the biggest Latin American acts of the '80s thanks to hits like 'Hold Me.'

He went solo in 1991, but found mainstream success in America when he released his first English-language album in 1999. Featuring the hit single, 'Livin' La Vida Loca,' his self-titled debut went platinum seven times, certifying his star status. His performance that same year at the Grammy awards captivated the nation, and Martin's been gliding ever since.
