Miguel delivered an emotionally raw hometown performance of the Wildheart album last night (July 14). The new age R&B sensation held nothing back at the intimate Sonos Studio in Los Angeles, nearly breaking down at one point during the set.

The singer was going through it a few years back. “I was kind of down,” he said to the crowd, choking up. “You know how we all can be really hard on ourselves, and I was having a really weird moment – having challenges creatively and on a personal note – and I realized normality is such a subjective thing.”

Miguel’s show last night was everything but normal. The singer, clad in all white, progressed through his new multi-genre album in an art gallery lined with expressionless walls, giving a performance that left no room for distractions. The LA crowd was fully invested, playing off of his every move.

The half-black, half-Latino star rapped, “Too proper for the black kids, too black for the Mexicans, too square to be a hood nigga, what’s normal anyway” to kick off his “What’s Normal Anyway” record. As he finished the lines, he paused to let one lucky die hard fan snap a selfie with him. Miguel showed his appreciation throughout the night, even playing off of drunken shouts from a male fan. “We love you!” The fan yelled out. “Can I get a girl to say that?” he responded.

Miguel came out to “The Thrill” and a couple other songs off of Kaleidoscope Dream but quickly moved on to perform the Wildheart records, which included “Coffee” and “Hollywood Dreams.”
