Known as “Kiki” to close friends and relatives, Puerto Rican native Ricky Martin has made girls go crazy with songs like “Livin' La Vida Loca” and “Shake Your Bon Bon.” But Martin was first known as hospital orderly Miguel Morez on General Hospital. “What I love about doing a soap opera character is that you can never be sure what will happen to him next,” The Menudo alum said back then. After two years on the show, Martin left to star in Les Miserables on Broadway. The multi-talented singer then went on to release albums that have catapulted him to international fame.
