Manuel Carrasco

Manuel Carrasco (born Januari 15 1981 on Isla Christina) is a Spanish pop singer. He rose to fame during his participation in the second edition of Operación Triunfo where he finished 2nd. In the final episode of Operación Triunfo the three most popular artists of the show each sang three songs before an "expert" jury eliminated one song for each singer. The televoting public then eliminated another song for each singer, leaving one song by each of the singers. The public had a week to televote for their favorite. The three songs Manuel sang were Santa Lucía, Sueña Con Ese Momento and Viviré, Moriré which came 3rd in the Spanish pre-selection.

In 2004 Manuel participated in the Latin American song festival II Festival Mundial de Canción in Puerto Rico were he finished 1st with his own song Dibujar Tu Olvido.

He has released four very successful albums.
His first album Quiéreme was released shortly after the shows in 2003 and sold more than 200,000 copies. His latest album was released in 2008.

Manuel is still very popular and successful in Spain and Latin America.
