Camilo Sesto (n. Alcoy, September 16, 1946) is the stage name of Camilo Blanes Cortés, a singer, songwriter, music producer and composer of romantic ballads, pop and rock.

He has released albums in English, and some of his classic songs have been interpreted by Italian, Portuguese and German singers. With a frenetic activity level in the 1970s and 1980s, he remains one of the artists with the most number 1 hits, totaling 52, his number of top 40 list-songs being 18. In 4 career decades he is estimated to have exceeded 175 million copies sold worldwide, making him one of the biggest selling artists in the Spanish speaking world.

As a composer he has written songs for artists such as Miguel Bosé, Cristina, Francisco, Ángela Carrasco, Lani Hall, Audrey Landers, Lucía Méndez, Manolo Otero, Sergio Fachelli, Charytín Goyco, José José and Federico Cabo among others, and produced and translated into Spanish the lyrics of one of the albums of Air Supply.
