    In 1970, Sesto moved to Los Angeles and started to learn English. After successfully starring in the Spanish version of Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical Jesus Christ Superstar in 1975, Sesto began to gain fame as a singer and composer. Year after year, he reached the top of the charts all over Latin America and in Spain, leaving us classics like Algo de mí (Something from me) (1972), Amor...Amar (Love.. to be Loved) (1972), Melina (1975), a song about Melina Mercouri, ¿Quieres ser mi Amante?

(My love, what have you done to me?) (1991), number one in the Billboard magazine, plus several hits around the whole world. During the 70's, Sesto created many hit songs and a great fortune, and almost every song came from his sole inspiration, being the author, interpreter, composer, and producer of all his works. They catapulted him as a consummate multi-talented artist. With an extraordinary reputation between the year 1980 and 1991 he composed the song and sang the theme for Colorina with Lucia Mendez. Being Colorina one of the most successful telenovelas in the 80's, he also produces for her a pop ballad hit album named Cerca de ti. It was a smash hit.

    After recovering from a liver transplant, in 2003 he managed to make a successful comeback with his album Alma, surprising the audience with the song Mola mazo (It rules) in an exercise of self-assertion. The Alma CD includes some songs in English: Selections from The Phantom of the Opera and a duet with Andrea Bronston. Camilo Sesto returned to the scenario back in 2004 in to the International Festival Viña del Mar in Chile.
