Miguel Ángel Muñoz was born in Madrid on July 4, 1983. Discovering a passion and talent for performance early on, Muñoz set his sights on a life on-stage. He made his cinematic debut at the age of nine in the film El Palomo Cojo, directed by Jaime Arminan. The film garnered attention and acclaim for Muñoz, becoming the first of many high-visibility roles. Muñoz's television credits include popular series like Mama Quiero Ser Artista and Al Salir de Clase. Feature motion pictures were soon to follow, including Gente Pez and Simbad: La Leyenda de los Siete Mares. Traditional theater laid the groundwork for Muñoz's musical pursuits. He played the narrator for the opera Bastian y Bastiana at Madrid's Teatro Real. It was his role in the television series Un Paso Adelante (UPA) that set him on the path to record industry success. Following his work with the show, he was a member of the group UPA Dance starting in 2002. Muñoz recorded four original projects with the group, earning six platinum records in the process. Muñoz released a series of singles leading up to his solo debut CD, Miguel Angel Muñoz, which was released in 2006. Promoting a follow-up project only a year later, Muñoz performed his song "Diras Que Estoy Loco" before audiences at the renowned Sanremo song festival in Italy. ~ Evan C. Gutierrez, Rovi
