Luis Miguel Gallego Basteri (born April 19, 1970), known professionally as Luis Miguel, is a Puerto Rican born Mexican singer. An icon in Latin America, he is often referred to as El Sol de México, and he’s one of the most successful artists in Latin American history, having successfully performed in a wide range of musical styles, including pop, ballads, boleros and mariachi. To date, Luis Miguel has sold over 100 million records worldwide.
With Latin pop music, along with his hermetic personal life, and showmanship on stage, has made him an icon for nearly his entire career, which started in Mexico in 1981. Having won his first Grammy Award at the age of fourteen for his duet “Me Gustas Tal Como Eres” with Sheena Easton, he is the third youngest act in music history to receive this accolade. In 1991, the RIAA recognized the high sales for his 1991 album Romance, itself being the best-selling music album in Mexico, and one of the best-selling Spanish language albums of all time. Luis Miguel is the only Latin artist to have been awarded two Platinum certified Spanish-language albums in the United States (Romance and Segundo Romance). His most recent album, Luis Miguel, was released in 2010 and achieved gold and platinum certifications in four countries within three days of its release.
Luis Miguel is also known for his high-grossing live performances. He is an annual headliner in The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, and he has sold-out the National Auditorium in Mexico City over 230 times in over twenty years. With the Luis Miguel Tour, his most recent concert tour, he visited 22 countries in North America, South America and Europe. Having performed in a three-and-a-half-year span a total of 223 shows all over the world, this tour is the longest and highest-grossing tour ever made by a Latin American artist.
During his child years, his father Luisito Rey, who was also his manager, encouraged him to watch and analyze nearly every movie, recording, and concert performance of Elvis Presley.
In 1981, at the age of 11, Luis Miguel released his first album, Un Sol, by the Mexican branch of EMI Records. Two years later, he started touring Latin American countries including Colombia, Venezuela, Chile, his native Puerto Rico and Argentina. He scored a major hit with his single, “1+1=Dos Enamorados”.
In 1985, at age of 15, he took part at the Sanremo Music Festival, where he won the second place award with his song “Noi Ragazzi Di Oggi”. That same year, he was also presented with the “Antorcha de Plata” Award in the Viña del Mar Music Festival for his duet single “Me Gustas Tal Como Eres” (“I Like You Just As You Are”) with Scottish singer Sheena Easton. In 1983, he co-starred in the film Ya Nunca Más and in 1985, Fiebre de Amor with singer Lucero as his co-star.
In 1986, Luis Miguel gave his career a brief break, as his relationship with his father was souring due to alleged mismanagement, poor financial decisions and risking his earnings of his career. Shortly after signing with Warner Records, in 1987, he fired his father and started to work with Juan Carlos Calderón. Luis Miguel’s album Soy Como Quiero Ser in May 1987 sold well. The album featured covering hits such as “Cuando Calienta El Sol”, “Ahora Te Puedes Marchar”, and “Yo Que No Vivo Sin Ti”.
On November 25, 1988, Luis Miguel’s second album Busca Una Mujer was released. The first single La Incondicional became a top-ten hit throughout Latin America in the first half of 1989, thanks in part to the music video. The video was shocking to many fans as he had cut his signature long hair. This cemented his transition from a child star into an adult superstar. By the end of 1989, the second single Fría Como el Viento reached No. 1 on the Hot Latin Tracks. He also had a top-ten single Separados in early 1990, peaking at #8.
In 1990, he made a successful transition from a child singer to an adult showman with the album 20 Años and an ensuing string of sold-out shows first in Mexico then throughout Latin America and elsewhere in the world. 20 Años which sold 600,000 copies in its first week of release, resulted in release of three singles Tengo Todo Excepto A Ti, Entrégate, Amante Del Amor with the two former hitting number 1 on Billboard’s Hot Latin Tracks in 1990.
