Spanish singer Alejandro Sanz received a gold disc from Universal Music Latin this weekend at The House of Blues in Hollywood, California, for "La musica no se toca," which came out just six weeks ago.
"This disc makes me really happy because it's so tough now to get gold or platinum discs since sales have gotten so complicated," Sanz said in a press conference after receiving the honor.
Universal Music Latin chief Victor Gonzalez, general manager Luis Estrada and executive Jesus Lopez presented the gold disc to the singer.
The album "was going to pay homage to music, especially the great icons that women, music itself and the sentiments conveyed in little stories signify for me within poetry," Sanz said.
"La musica no se toca," which features 13 songs, came out on Sept. 25 for download on Web sites like Amazon and iTunes.
Sanz has won 15 Latin Grammys and three Grammys. EFE
