Beyond your typical teen heartthrobs (Bieber, any One Direction member, etc.), it’s rare to see the same level of hysteria in a crowd for a performer. But if you’ve ever been to a Miguel show, then you’ll know that he and his music are very capable of eliciting such a response.

Recently, the singer surprised Dana Middle School—his alma mater—during their talent show for a performance of “Adorn” from 2012’s Kaleidoscope Dream. If we’re going to be honest, though, this is hardly fair to all of those who entered the talent show, because Miguel effortlessly nails it. At least he also stayed around to help hand out the talent show awards with the Boys & Girls Club of Los Angeles Harbor members, of which he was a member when he was young.
