Some people are destined at birth to pursue a particular profession – either because they were born into families whose members work in such professions, or because their lives have been channeled in this way since birth. One such person is Miguel Bose.
Bose is a singer and actor whose career in the entertainment scene began when he was still a teenager and who followed in the footsteps of his mother, who is also an actress in the entertainment industry. With over 25 albums, he also appeared in numerous films before the 2000s.
Miguel Bose Biography
The legendary singer was born on April 3, 1956, as Luis Miguel González Bosé in Panama City, Panama. His parents, of Italian and Spanish descent, are Luis Miguel Dominguín, a bullfighter, and Lucia Bosè, an actress.
Miguel grew up alongside his siblings Lucía Dominguín and Paola Dominguín. He was always with very creative people and lovers of art and acting, and so his creative instincts had been applied from a very young age. When he was a teenager, he had already started to play roles in movies. Interestingly, it wasn’t his mother’s influence but his sheer talent and good looks that opened the door for Miguel Bose to become an actor.
When he started out as an actor, he decided to study a little more art, while he also began to study dance and singing. Miguel Bose acted in many movies, like Vera, un cuento cruel (174), Cosa de locos (1981), La Reine Margot (1994) Libertarias…. (1996), and La Mirada del otro …. (1998).
As a musician, Miguel Bose released his first album “Linda” in 1977, followed by “Miguel Bosé” the very next year. In the following three years the album “¡Chicas! (1979), “Miguel” (1980) and “Más allá” (1981) were released. He also released other albums, including “Salamandra” (1986), “Los chicos no lloran” (1990), Velvetina (2005), Cardio (2010), and his latest album Amo (2014). Bose has also released a number of live and collaborative albums.
