Also a popular singer, he scored an international 1961 hit with "La novia", later known as "The Wedding" in Great Britain and the US. In 1995 a 20 Greatest Hits CD was released, which included such hits as "La novia" and "El milagro". He also made a very popular Spanish version of a song from the Italian singer Domenico Modugno.
