People en Español Gets Up Close & Personal with Ricky Martin


New York, NY–(HISPANIC PR WIRE)–September 6, 2005–People en Español’s October issue hits newsstands on Monday, September 5 featuring an exclusive interview with Latin pop sensation Ricky Martin. After a four year hiatus, the Puerto Rican singer returns to re-engage his English-speaking fan base with his new album entitled “Life,” – a musical montage of rhythms and sounds from all over the world.

The singer, who wrote and produced the album, also collaborated with today’s leading talents such as Fat Joe, Amerie, the Black Eyed Peas and Daddy Yankee on what promises to be an international success.

“I like working with young talent because they are risk takers,” says Martin. “And I also wanted to let the world know about the talent that stems from my country.”

Over the past several years, Martin’s extensive travels to India, Brazil and the Middle East not only influenced his musical creativity but also publicized his courageous fight to help children in Third World countries.

“How can I complain about wearing or not wearing Prada shoes?” says Martin. “I love Prada, but there are also 3,600 orphaned children due to the Tsunami. What am I complaining about?”

All this and much more in the October issue of People en Español.
