Biography


Born as Enrique Martin Morales, Martin has achieved worldwide success, starting with his selection to substitute Ricky Melendez in Menudo in 1984 until 1989. His meteoric ascent to fame started in Menudo's homebase, Caguas, site of his first concert. He signed Sony in 1990.

It continued after he left Menudo, when he moved to Mexico and participated in soap operas like Alcanzar Una Estrella II and in the music group Munecos De Papel. Later, in Hollywood he played Miguel Morez on General Hospital.

One of Ricky's career high points was the recording of the Spanglish ballad "Cuidado Con Mi Corazon" with Madonna and William Orbit. The original version was written with Patrick Leonard and the first demo remains just one of many Unreleased Madonna Songs.

Ricky was chosen, along with Félix Trinidad in 1999, to lead Puerto Rico's worldwide tourism campaign, both exemplifying Puerto Rico's youthfulness, enthusiasm and never give up character.
