Ricky Martin is a Grammy Award-winning international pop superstar who's sold more than 50 million copies of his sound recordings and DVD/videos worldwide. With his "Livin' La Vida Loca" single in 1999, Ricky Martin triggered an international Latin music explosion. That same year, he won a Grammy Award for Best Latin Pop Performance for "Vuelve," a full-length Latin recording. Among Martin's other numerous awards, he was named World's Best selling Pop Male Artist and World's Best selling Latin Artist at the 12th Annual World Music Awards. At the 10th Annual Billboard Music Awards, Martin was named Male Artist Of The Year and Male Hot 100 Singles Artist Of The Year. His eagerly awaited new English language album, Life, is the artist's first release since his worldwide smash, "Almas del Silencio" (Souls of Silence), debuted at Number One on the Billboard Top Latin Albums chart in May 2003, with the largest first week's sales of any all-Spanish language album. "I Don't Care," the first single from "Life," features guest artists Fat Joe and Amerie. Martin got his start in show business as a member of the iconic Latin boy band, Menudo, from 1984-1989, before launching his solo career in 1990. American audiences first discovered Ricky during his stint on the soap opera "General Hospital."

Multiple Grammy Award-winning artist Seal emerged from England's music scene in the early '90s to become one of the most distinctive vocalists of the decade. His unique fusion of soul, folk, pop, dance, and rock elements brought him critical and popular success worldwide. Seal's 1991 debut album, Seal, featuring the hit single "Crazy," sold over three million copies around the world. In 1994 he released his second album, also entitled Seal, featuring the songs "Prayer for the Dying" and "Kiss from a Rose," which won a Grammy Award and became a Number One pop single around the world. Seal's next albums included Human Being and Seal IV, which featured the Grammy nominated hit song "Love's Divine." The career-spanning Best: 1991-2004 was released in October 2004, featuring never-before released acoustic versions of his hit songs.

Trumpeter Chris Botti is a gifted instrumentalist, a talented composer and a charismatic performer. His recently released album, To Love Again, is a collection of pop jazz standards featuring nine superstar guest vocalists, including Sting, Paula Cole, Michael Bubl´┐Ż, Jill Scott, Paul Buchanan, Gladys Knight, Renee Olstead, Rosa Passos and Steven Tyler. To Love Again follows the extraordinary success of Botti's groundbreaking last album, When I Fall In Love, which has sold more than 500,000 copies to date. On both albums, Botti is joined by the London Session Orchestra. Botti joined Sting as a featured soloist on his "Brand New Day" tour. He has also worked with Paul Simon, Joni Mitchell, Natalie Merchant and renowned film composer John Barry, among others. Botti's other albums include First Wish, Midnight Without You, Slowing Down the World, Night Sessions, December and A Thousand Kisses Deep.
