Miguel Performed an Intimate Acoustic Set in a Michigan Family’s Living Room

With tracks like “The Valley,” Miguel might not be the first artist to come to mind as a family-friendly performer. But recently the artist took to an unusual stage—a Michigan family’s living room—to perform in support of Make Room, a campaign to raise awareness for struggling renters.

Miguel’s heartfelt acoustic renditions of “Coffee,” “What’s Normal Anyway,” and “Adorn” speak to his own tie to the cause: “I grew up in a single parent family, and my mom often struggled,” Miguel said before he began performing. “I would see her work really hard and come home and be tired and give everything she had to us. And so it’s really cool to be able to hopefully just let you know that people are paying attention.”
