Singer, Actor. Born Roberto Sánchez, he is considered by many to be one of the greatest Argentine music stars. Widely known as "El Gitano" or "Sandro de América", he began his career when he was a child, imitating singer Elvis Presley. In 1960, Sandro formed his first band, but gained some notoriety after joining "Los de Fuego" in 1963. The artist's breakthrough came in 1967 when he came in first place at a Buenos Aires, Argentina festival, singing his song "Quiero Llenarme de Ti". Soon the singer was performing in larger venues such as New York City's Madison Square Garden in 1970 (becoming the first Latin American to do so). His popularity was such that in 1971 he performed in front of 60,000 people at San Lorenzo de Almagro's stadium in Buenos Aires. His acting career saw him perform roles in sixteen motion pictures and a popular Puerto Rican soap opera called "Fue Sin Querer". He recorded 52 albums, sold more than 8 million copies and was awarded a Latin Grammy for career achievement in 2005. (bio by: Nes Pagani)
