Miguel Bio

Feb 17, 2013

R&B singer Miguel released his sophomore album Kaleidoscope Dream to rave reviews from music critics and blogs and he has continued to climb up the charts this year, gaining more and more fans as he goes. Find out more about Miguel in his Kidzworld Bio!

Mini Miguel

Miguel Jontel Pimentel was born in San Pedro, Los Angeles, California on October 23, 1985. He has one brother and his mother is African American and his father is Mexican, his parents divorced when he was 8-years-old. Miguel has said that his mother encouraged him to listen to old R&B at a young age, while his dad loved to listen to jazz, classic rock, funk and hip hop. By the time Miguel hit 13, he knew that he wanted to be involved with music, and at 14-years-old he started writing his own songs and trying to record them with four track recorder before he met a member of the production team Drop Squad through a friend in high school and spent the rest of his high school days learning the ropes in a recording studio in his spare time in hopes of getting a record deal himself one day.

All I Want Is You

In 2004 Miguel penned a deal with the independent record label Black Ice, and set to work on his first studio album, but by 2006 the record was shelved and Miguel was back to square one. Black Ice did release one single, “Getcha Hands Up,” but by this time Miguel had decided that he wanted a whole new look and sound and walked away from the deal. Miguel’s manager set to work sending out his songs to different labels, and it was his highly personal song “Sure Thing” (a song that Miguel never intended anyone to hear even) that caught a major music exec’s attention. Miguel signed to Jive Records just one month later. He later released his debut album All I Want Is You, but was sued by Black Ice for breach of contract, and the album didn’t come out for another 2 years. Coming out in 2010 All I Want Is You was a “sleeper hit,” - not doing well on the charts initially, it later became a fan favorite.

Kaleidoscope Dream

Miguel’s next album Kaleidoscope Dream was released in 2012 and critics loved it! He had perfected his sound and look, and was ready to take on mainstream audiences. Kaleidoscope Dream was featured on favorite lists and music blogs and it steadily crept its way up the charts. In fact, the single “Adorn” was nominated for Best R&B Song at the 2013 Grammy Awards and won! It was also nominated for Song of the Year and Album of the Year.
