Miguel Shares His Story on MTV’s ‘This Is How I Made It’

Miguel has become one of R&B’s most promising stars, but it didn’t happen overnight. He shares his long and difficult journey to success on MTV’s “This Is How I Made It.” The L.A. native speaks about growing up in a multiracial household in San Pedro, Calif., and not conforming to the status quo.

He was eventually signed to Jive Records, but it wasn’t long before he was slapped with a lawsuit by his former label. A broke Miguel ended up spending all his money on legal fees, and savors the day he played his first paid gig.

“Making it for me has everything to do with staying true to myself, creating things that inspire me and hopefully inspire others,” said the “Adorn” singer.
