Miguel Biography (Wikipedia)
Miguel Jontel Pimentel (born October 23, 1985), better known as Miguel, is an American singer, songwriter and record producer. Raised in Los Angeles, he began creating music at age thirteen.

After Jive's dissolution in 2011, he moved to RCA Records and released his second studio album, Kaleidoscope Dream in 2012 to critical acclaim. On June 29, 2015, Miguel released his third studio album, Wildheart, which also received universal critical acclaim. Miguel incorporates R&B, funk, hip hop, rock and electronic styles into his music, and has been compared to vocalists Babyface and Prince.
