Alejandro Sánchez Pizarro (Spanish pronunciation: [aleˈxandɾo ˈsanθ]; better known as Alejandro Sanz; December 18, 1968) is a Spanish singer-songwriter and musician. For his work, Sanz has won a total of seventeen Latin Grammy Awards and three Grammy Awards. He has won the Latin Grammy for Album of the Year three times, more than any other artist. The singer is notable for his flamenco-influenced ballads, but he has also experimented with rock, funk, electronic, jazz and many genres from latin music.

Born in Madrid to parents from Andalusia, Sanz began playing guitar at age seven, taking influence from his family's flamenco roots. Sanz released his debut album at age nineteen, although he did not gain commercial success in Spain until his second release, Viviendo Deprisa. His next two records, Si Tú Me Miras (1993) and 3 (1995) also fared well commercially, but it was his 1997 breakthrough album Más that garnered international success. El Alma al Aire followed in 2000, selling more than a million copies in its first week. In 2002, he became the first Spanish artist to record an MTV Unplugged album.

His collaboration with Shakira on the 2005 single "La Tortura" reached number one on several charts worldwide. His albums No Es lo Mismo (2003) and El Tren de los Momentos (2006) showed Sanz experimenting with more diverse styles of music, while his 2009 release, Paraíso Express served as a return to form for the musician. He signed to Universal Music Group in 2011 and released his tenth studio album, La Música No Se Toca, on September 25, 2012, followed by Sirope on May 4, 2015.
