Born Luis Miguel Coronel Gamez on the 3rd of February 1996, in Tucson, Arizona USA, Luis Coronel is a 22-year-old singer and songwriter of Hispanic descent. He is perhaps best known for his achievements in the world of Latino music, more specifically for being an American-born Mexican singer of regional Mexican music, and thus contributing to the popularity of this genre with his now famous name. He has been active in the lucrative singing business since 2012.
Early Life and Education
There is currently no information regarding the specifics of Coronel’s education, and thus his high school and/or college are unknown. Certain sources state that his father died quite early in his teenage years, while his mother’s identity remains unknown to this day. When it comes to his siblings, Mireya and Bebe are the names of his older sister and older brother respectively. It is also public knowledge that Luis started his career quite early, since he joined a local church choir to practice his vocal skills as early as the age of six, although early on he didn’t think of becoming a singer, since he then took an interest in boxing.
Strange as it may sound, Luis actually began his singing career when still boxing – at one time he decided to sing having finished a boxing match, and this performance was recorded. For pure amusement and perhaps as a way to keep his memory alive, Luis had this video uploaded to YouTube at a later date, and future fans then discovered this video and Luis got a round of applause in the comments, while the video was turned into a sensation soon after. The public reaction then inspired Luis to make more singing videos, sacrificing his boxing career in the meantime, seemingly a good move, since Luis was eventually noticed by a major music production company entitled DEL Records. Thanks to the influence of his growing fanbase, one of the chairmen of the said company, called Angel Del Villar, quickly noticed the potential that Luis apparently had, and offered him a contract.
Starting with the abovementioned event, at only 16 years of age in 2012, Luis became a superstar practically overnight. His first studio album entitled “Con la Frente en Alto” came out in September 2013, through DEL Records and gained a Gold RIAA (Latin) certification. It took the 80th place in the US in the weekly Billboard magazine, while it went as high as number two on the Top Latin Albums chart, and it was also considered the number one US Regional Mexican Album at the time. In September 2014, Luis achieved similarly with his new album entitled “Quiero ser tu Dueño”, also under the label of DEL Records, and it landed in 33rd spot in the US Billboard magazine, and claimed the number one spot on the Top Latin Albums chart, and also again the #1 US Regional Mexican Album spot. Finally, in October 2017, Luis published his so-far latest album, entitled “Ahora Soy Yo”, this time under the label of Sony Music Latin, claiming the 121st spot on the US Billboard chart, and number two on the Top Latin Albums chart.
When it comes to the awards and nominations that Luis has obtained to date, he’s totaled nine nominations and seven wins – one of his most significant rewards to date is the Latin Billboard Music Award in the New Artist of the Year category in 2014, while he was also nominated for Telemundo’s “Premios Tu Mundo” award in the Feeling Social category in the same year, but this time he didn’t win.
While Luis is now a full-fledged singer who is fully devoted to his profession, in his own words, boxing is still part of his daily life. He mostly indulges in this fighting discipline to relieve everyday stress that likely comes from long hours in the studio. Also, he can be seen attending boxing matches with his girlfriend, which further proves that his interest in the sport has survived.
What Is Luis Coronel’s Net worth?
Have you ever wondered how high Luis Coronel’s net worth is, as of early 2018? According to authoritative sources, it has been estimated that the current value of Luis Coronel’s total accumulated wealth is around $2 million, greatly influenced by his achievements in the world of singing, especially as a representative of the regional Mexican music genre in the US.
Regarding his sexuality, Coronel has made no public statements, although he is heterosexual, and has been seen attending multiple events with his girlfriend Adilene Idalie, while there’s also a video of him singing to her that he uploaded to his official Facebook account.

Concerning the physical characteristics of the young singer, sources state that he is at the regular height of 5 feet and 8 inches (1.71m), and that he weighs 132 lbs (62kg). He is of white ethnicity and Hispanic descent, while his hair color is black and his eyes are dark brown.
Social Media Presence
Being as popular among the youth as he is, it would make sense for Coronel to keep his social media profiles active. With a look at his Facebook account, it’s easy to determine that he is doing just that, since his over 5.6 million followers stand as clear proof. Coronel’s Twitter account doesn’t quite compare, with 450.000 current followers, but his Instagram profile doesn’t fall behind his Facebook too much, with a current high of over two million followers.
