Julio Iglesias: Bieber is magical

Julio Iglesias

Music icon Julio Iglesias is impressed by Justin Bieber and believes the teenage crooner “is going to stay on the road longer than people think”.

The 69-year-old music icon is deeply impressed with the teenage pop star’s talent.

Julio would in fact love to work with many young singers.

But Justin is particularly appealing to the legendary crooner.

“[I’d like to collaborate with] Justin Timberlake, Bruno Mars and Justin Bieber,” he told Extra.

“I love that little guy... I was watching him the other day with the guitar singing and it was magic. He’s a guy who is going to stay on the road longer than people think.”

Julio made it big in America and other English-speaking countries when he released 1984 album 1100 Bel Air Place.

He sang a duet on the record entitled To All the Girls I’ve Loved Before with Willie Nelson.

The hit sold millions of copies and Julio could not be more grateful to his fellow musician.

“I remember I couldn't speak English at all, and it took me a long time to sing, ‘To all the G-G-G-G.’ Now when I go back to that moment, I am very thankful because I think without that music, that song and Willie Nelson, I would not be here today,” he said.
