PAGE Magazine 08 M Latin Beat Jmiel brings his passion for music Written by Jesus Figueroa Staff Writer Reggeaton singer Jmiel continues to evolve his unique style by pushing the limits of his creativity. The regeaton-pop style which has gotten a good response from music fan and continues to change as Jmiel gets more confidence in his style. Jmiel has played shows and charitable events around Massachusetts. “I support cancer charities because my aunt got me into it,” Jmiel said. “She died of cancer and I continued to support cancer charities because she was my biggest fan and supporter.” The style stands out and although it is reggeaton he has decided to add pop elements since it’s what he says he grew up with. Jmiel recently release his single “La Oportunidad (The Opportunity)” which is upbeat with catchy lyrics. It’s different from previous work and stands out among other songs from the same genre as well. “Do something different than before,” Jmiel said. “No risk, no reward.” With such an attitude he delivers a song with such rhythm that it will motivate listeners to dance. This young singer’s career may hold great promise if he keeps on delivering more music with strong sounds and unique beats. Jmiel said he likes fusing different sounds with his music — from pop to Colombian and salsa. His influences stem from artist spanning many genres such as Winsin y Yadel and Ne-Yo, but he wishes to one day collaborate with a variety of artist — such as Enrique Iglesias, Ricky Martin and Marc Anthony. Jmiel hopes to take more risk with his sound and create music to make listeners get up off their seats and dance or jump, something that makes them not want to stand still.
