You can now call him Dr. Iglesias!
This past weekend, Latin pop icon Julio Iglesias received an honorary doctorate degree from Boston's Berklee College of Music.
Enrique Iglesias' dad was honored for his career, which has spanned over 80 albums, in addition to his contributions to American and International culture.
He was joined by Sony Music Entertainment CEO Doug Morris, drummer Harvey Mason, and Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Dee Dee Bridgewater.
Coincidentally, Enrique Iglesias has partnered with the Latin GRAMMY cultural foundation to award one Berklee College of Music student a four-year scholarship of up to $200,000.
"Partnering with the Latin GRAMMY Cultural Foundation, whose mission is to support and foster the next generation of Latin musicians, is not only rewarding but also is aligned with my personal beliefs. Not everyone gets to do what they love, and to be able to help someone achieve their goals is extremely gratifying," Iglesias said.
Congratulations to both Iglesias men!
