SPANISH pop sensation Alejandro Sanz has been awarded an honorary doctorate at Berklee College of Music in Boston.

Sanz, from Algeciras, accepted the accolade in front of a crowd of 1,200 at the US institution, and gave a speech thanking his father who bought him his first guitar.

Dressed in a traditional cap and gown, the singer told the Berklee students to never give up on their art.

“There will always be a chord beyond your tiredness and frustration.” he said.
