Showtime – 8:00 PM
440 N. 32nd St.
DJ Ware & POWER 98.3/96.1 present Under the Mistletoe with R&B music’s Miguel at 8 p.m. on Thursday, December 14 at the historic Celebrity Theatre.
The 32-year-old singer, songwriter and record producer is gearing up for the release of his fourth album, War & Leisure, in December, following his highly acclaimed LP Wildheart. Miguel’s third album, Wildheart, was one of the albums of 2015 with its heavy psychedelic production and sexually-charged lyrics. It earned a Grammy nomination for Best Urban Contemporary Album, as its single “Coffee” earned a Grammy nod for Best R&B Song. His new record War & Leisure contains plenty of Miguel’s trademark smooth vocals, catchy hooks and atmospheric live instrumentation. While it isn’t overtly political, he couldn’t help but include some references to world events.
“I wouldn’t be myself if it didn’t make it into my music,” said the star. “So I think you’ll hear it sprinkled around the album.
Miguel’s 2012 album Kaleidoscope Dream debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200, and in 2013 its runaway track “Adorn” earned a Grammy. The song has been compared to Marvin Gaye’s “Sexual Healing” for its sensual tone and easy pace. In 2013, he also won the Soul Train Music Award for best R&B/soul male artist. That same year the single “Beautiful” with Mariah Carey became Miguel’s third million-seller in the USA, following “Sure Thing” and “Adorn.”
Miguel (full name Miguel Jontel Pimentel), whose mother is black and whose father is from Michoacan, Mexico, was raised in Los Angeles. He began creating music at age 13, and signed his first recording contract in 2004. His 2010 debut studio album All I Want Is You helped garner commercial standing. Miguel incorporates R&B, funk, hip hop, rock and electronic into his music, and has been compared to vocalists Babyface and Prince.
