LIU_Post_Miguel_interviewBrookville, N.Y. - Grammy-award winning R&B artist Miguel met with members of the LIU Post student press and the Association for Campus Programming during a pre-concert meet-and-greet at Tilles Center for the Performing Arts at LIU Post on Saturday, April 20, 2013. Miguel performed on Saturday night at Tilles Center as part of the university’s annual Spring Fling Concert. All ticket proceeds benefitted the “It Takes a Village” book scholarship program, which provides textbook vouchers to LIU Post students.

Since his debut in 2010 with the album “All I Want Is You,” Miguel has earned numerous nominations for American Music Awards, BET Awards, Grammy Awards, World Music Awards and Billboard Music Awards. Miguel’s singles include “All I Want is You,” “Sure Thing,” “Quickie,” “Girls Like You,” “Adorn,” and “Do You…”

Though new to the scene, Miguel has already accrued accolades as a fresh sound in R&B, earning the 2013 Grammy for “Best R&B Song.” He was nominated in several other categories at this year’s Grammys including “Song of the Year,” “Best Rap Song,” “Best R&B Performance,” and “Best Urban Contemporary Album.”

LIU Post students receive discount tickets to many Tilles Center performances and, in some cases, have the opportunity to meet performing artists and celebrities prior to concerts and events.
