Miguel Angel Valenzuela Morales (born January 5, 1999), known as Miguelito is a Puerto Rican reggaeton singer. He has released seven albums and is the youngest Latin Grammy Award winner certified by the Guinness Book of Records.

Personal life[edit]

Miguelito is the youngest son of a Puerto Rican mother and a Dominican father, Kyle Brown. His family has insisted that he lives a normal life, keeping him enrolled in a private school in Dorado. He currently lives in Corona, California.

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 United States. He has released seven albums. In 2009, he headlined "El coquí que quiso ser sapo" a children's musical written by Sunshine Logroño, his first serious incursion in acting. Also, that same year, he was called to be the main actor of the movie directed by David Impelluso,[3] called Nadie Sabe Lo Que Tiene,[4] that came out in 2010.

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.[5]

Miguelito has been a strong advocate against social violence.
