BOSTON (AP) — Spanish pop sensation Alejandro Sanz stepped into a music school for the first time Wednesday and received an honorary doctorate degree from one of the world's foremost institutions devoted to his craft.

Sanz accepted the honor from Berklee College of Music in Boston before more than 1,200 people who had packed the school's performance center for the sold-out event. A group of 40 students performed his music.

The Madrid artist has sold more than 23 million albums worldwide and received numerous Latin Grammy and Grammy awards.

Sanz said that when he first heard he would receive the honor, he was delighted but thought someone wasn't thinking straight.

"I was very happy but I thought they were crazy," Sanz said. "But I wanted to learn about the school. It's my first time inside a music school, and I was very happy to get to know the students."

The school reserves the honor for artists who have the overwhelming respect of their peers. He joins the ranks of Duke Ellington, Steven Tyler, Melissa Etheridge and other music superstars.
