About Manuel Medrano

∙ Medrano got his first guitar as a Christmas “punishment” instead of a video game console, because he had failed a year in school.
∙ The video for his 2015 acoustic ballad “Bajo el agua” has garnered more than 400 million views.
∙ In 2016, he won a pair of Latin Grammy Awards: Best New Artist and Best Singer-Songwriter Album, for his self-titled debut LP.
∙ “Cielo,” Medrano’s 2020 dance-floor-ready collaboration with Chic’s Nile Rodgers, hit No. 3 on Billboard’s Mexico Pop Espanol Airplay chart.
