Miguel's Kaleidoscope Dream

By Moya Nkruma, Membership Coordinator, Rhythm & Soul


Miguel

2012 continues to be a great year for Miguel. Nominated for several Grammy and Billboard awards, winning a BET Award for Best Collaboration with Wale for "Lotus Flower Bomb" and, of course, taking home the honor of the ASCAP Rhythm & Soul Award for Top R&B/Hip-Hop Song for "Sure Thing" (one of my favorite songs, btw).

Miguel is one of those artists who possesses a gifted pen. Working here at ASCAP, I have had the pleasure of meeting Miguel on several different occasions. He is a talented songwriter and producer, and a phenomenal performer. He is also very humble and greets you like a friend. In our ongoing celebration of the release of Kaleidoscope Dream, the follow up to his 2010 album All I Want Is You, we're unveiling a video I filmed of his performance during a Myspace Secret Show at the Key Club in Hollywood - a show where hundreds of fans formed lines that wrapped around the block. I had a chance to catch up with him backstage and ask a few questions about his creative process and if he had any advice for his fellow songwriters.





I am definitely loving Kaleidoscope Dream and plan to buy it today. For now, I am currently streaming it on Spotify ...on repeat.
