Personal life[edit]

Professional career[edit]

Starting his career in Puerto Rico, he has already performed in Latin America,[1] including a 2007 tour in Ecuador, Colombia and the Dominican Republic,[2] as well as the mainland United States. He has released three albums. In October, he headlined "El coquí que quiso ser sapo" a children's musical written by Sunshine Logroño, his first serious incursion in acting.

Miguelito is the youngest person to win a Latin Grammy Award. He won the award for Best Latin Children's Album on November 13, 2008. He was nine years old.[3] He is known as "El Heredero" because he has admired and decided to begin his career in music because of the famous 'reggetonero' Daddy Yankee.
