Miguel Puts On A Living Room Performance For Struggling Michigan Family

News

Miguel is using his music to help support families in America who are having trouble paying their rent. Teaming up with Make Room USA, an organization dedicated to raising awareness for the country’s housing crisis, the singer put on an acoustic concert in the living room for 44-year-old Devona Rollin’s struggling Michigan family.

“I grew up in a single parent family, and my mom often struggled,” Miguel said of joining the cause. “I would see her work really hard, and come home and be tired, and give everything she had to us. And it’s really cool to hopefully let you know that people are paying attention.”

Rollins shared her story with Make Room, detailing how the loss of grandfather, imprisonment, drug use and being single mother of three has shaped her journey, Now running her own business and opting for a safer neighborhood with a better school district for her children (her daughter, and her niece and nephew whom she has custody of), Rollins shared that she spends more than half of her income on rent.

Miguel participated in Make Room’s “Concerts For The 1st” series, and sang his smash hit “Adorn,” as well as cuts from his new Wildheart album, “Coffee” and “What’s Normal Anyway.” Peep footage of the performance below, and learn more about Rollins’ story here.
