Miguel Ángel Cancel Vázquez (born June 28, 1968) is a Puerto Rican-American police officer and singer who began his career with the Puerto Rico-based boy band Menudo.

Menudo[edit]

A native of Chicago, Illinois, Cancel joined Menudo as a singer in 1981, replacing Óscar Meléndez. In 1983, Cancel left Menudo at the age of 15, a year before the mandatory retirement age of 16, due to a sudden voice change. He was replaced by Roy Rosselló.

After Menudo[edit]

1980s[edit]

In 1984, Cancel released his first solo recording, the pop rock single entitled "Fun Fun Fun Fun" (English/Spanish).[1][2] The single was produced and written by Doug Fieger, lead singer of The Knack, and issued on Cancel's newly formed independent label, Miguel Enterprises.[3]

1990s[edit]

In 1998, Cancel joined El Reencuentro, a group consisting of former Menudo members. The band recorded and issued an album of previously released Menudo songs and toured throughout the world in promotion of the album.

2000s-present[edit]

In 2003, Cancel became a police officer of the Coral Gables, Florida Police Department. In December 2004, he was ejected from the back seat of a Coral Gables police van resulting in the loss of two fingers from his left hand.[4]

Cancel currently lives in Los Angeles, California, and serves as a police officer with the Los Angeles Police Department.

In 2012, Cancel announced that he would again be returning to the music industry as a solo artist, his first solo effort having been in 1984.
