I didn't set out to win Operación Triunfo, I just wanted to share my music. I prayed every night to have someone hear me and give me a chance.
New York, NY (PRWEB) January 2, 2008
Spanish pop star, David Bisbal appears on V-me 's Estudio Billboard January 8 at 10:00pm(ET) with encore on January 13 at 8:00pm.
After performing unnoticed for five years in a local Spanish indie band, David Bisbal appeared in 2001 on the Spanish music reality show, Operación Triunfo where he finished as first runner up. Quickly signed to a recording contract, he launched an international career that includes the 2003 Latin Grammy for Best New Artist. "I didn't set out to win Operación Triunfo, I just wanted to share my music. I prayed every night to have someone hear me and give me a chance."
David Bisbal speaks with host Leila Cobo about his family and the inspiration he gets from them. He also reflects on the hardships of touring and being away from the people he loves most, and the challenges of life in the media spotlight. "Somehow with music, everything turns positive, even some issues in the media. I've always known that my music and the people I love are like a shield to me."
While David Bisbal is an international pop star, he explains that he tries to add a little touch of his homeland in every song -- drawing on his roots in Southern Spain. On Estudio Billboard he performs a very traditional Spanish song dedicated to his homeland, Almería, tierra noble, along with the award-winning Amar es lo que quiero from his latest album, Premonición.
