Beloved singer-songwriter and producer Camilo Sesto died on Sunday. He was 72.

Sesto's family confirmed the news via his official Twitter page. "Dear friends, We are very sorry to inform you that our great and dear artist Camilo Sesto has left us. Rest in peace," the message read.

The cause of death was not revealed by the family but according to Spanish public television TVE, Sesto died from cardiac arrest at a hospital in Madrid, Spain.

Born Camilo Blanes Cortes in Spain, Sesto became a household name in Europe and across Latin America after the debut of his first album Algo De Mí, which translates to "something of me," in 1971.
