DeLeón Nights hosted a private event last night powered by Billboard at The Sayers Club. Soul singer Miguel took to the stage to perform a 45 minute set for the intimate crowd. He is the first artist to be inducted into the DeLeón 100 list. The list chosen by Sean “Diddy” Combs with the help of Billboard and DeLeón Tequlia recognizes artists who are tastemakers in music and do not follow the status quote.
Diddy said of the list,
I’m always searching for people who are bold, fearless and doing their part to shape the future. Now, in partnership with Billboard, I will be celebrating and sharing their inspiring stories with the world.
Miguel is the perfect artist to receive this honor because he has always stayed true to himself and remained humble throughout his career. He is far from a follower and has created his own lane in music. Performing classics songs like “Simple Things” and “Adorn“, the small crowd could not help but be engaged by his stage presence and amazing vocals.
