Miguel

Cinco de Mayo may be the day we celebrate cerveza and guacamole, but the real Mexican Independence Day is September 16. In honor of the holiday, we spotlight our favorite stars from South of the Border. 

Miguel is an R&B sensation whose name gives away his multi-cultural roots. The singer was born to a Mexican father and Black mother and raised with the best of both worlds. "We had tamales at every Christmas dinner," he said.
