Miguel Ángel Cancel Vázquez (born June 29, 1968) is a former member of Menudo.


A native of Chicago, Cancel joined Menudo in 1980, replacing Oscar Melendez. His persona in the group was as the good guy[dubious ]. He became an instant hit among Menudo fans because of his charisma and vocal ability.

Cancel was a member during the worldwide Menudo craze of the early 1980s. In the 1981 album Quiero Ser, Miguel sang a duet with Xavier Serbia in Menudo's "Rock en la TV". He also sang "Es Por Amor" and the heart-touching "Cuando Pasara", a song which talked both about parents who abandon their children and parents who die too young to see them grow.

Miguel left Menudo in 1983 before his mandatory retirement age of 16 because he wanted his life to be more like a normal, non famous person. He was replaced by Roy Rosselló.

After Menudo

Cancel joined El Reencuentro in 1998. The group, made up of former Menudo members, went on a worldwide tour and recorded an album singing old Menudo songs.

Cancel currently works as a police officer with the Los Angeles Police Department. He was previously an officer with the Coral Gables, Florida police department. While with Coral Gables, he was seriously injured in 2004 when a police van overturned, losing two fingers of his left hand. Cancel was also named the July 2003 Coral Gables Officer of the Month by the Kiwanis Club of Coral Gables.
