Miguel's career commenced at age 11 when the young Miguel was spotted performing at a birthday party in Veracruz by a Mexican record executive, and was promptly given a record deal. He rapidly became a teen idol.
Later developing a more sophisticated image modelled on singers such as Julio Iglesias and Frank Sinatra, Miguel began singing less pop-orientated material, and went on to make a highly successful career as an adult singer, making many recordings and performing in numerous countries. His 1991 album Romance, a collection of Latin boleros, became the first ever gold-selling Spanish language album in the United States. Miguel also sang "Come Fly With Me" with Sinatra on the latter's 1993 all-star collection, Duets.
In 1998, Miguel co-starred in the film Fiebre de Amor, and also contributed on the soundtrack.
