Personal Life and Family
Michael Jimenez was born to Aime Limon and Mike Jimenez in East Los Angeles. He has a younger sibling named Jade Jimenez (born October 2, 2001). His parents divorced when he was five years old, but he remains close with both of them. His mother works two jobs as a full-time hair stylist and as a part-time real estate agent. His dad owns a barber shop, and his grandmother used to own a salon.
Mikey gained his confidence as an artist by singing to the customers in the hair salon. He began singing after he watched his dad and grandpa sing, causing him to fall in love with music. School is very important to Mikey's mother, so he was not allowed to fully pursue music until he graduated.
He auditioned for ABC's Boy Band with Ne-Yo's "Because Of You” in 2017, missing his high school graduation for the show. He was put in the bottom twice, and ended in the top eight. He released his single “Back To Him” after the show ended, and was featured in the song “Nowhere Fast” with fellow-former Boy Band member, Miles Wesley. In January 2018, Mikey joined with former contestants from Boy Band to form the four-piece band 4th Ave. On July 30, 2019, he announced his departure, having different aspirations and visions.

- "'Will you date a fan?' Hm... I guess, yeah. 'Cause you guys are humans. And I'm attracted to humans. So... but you can't be weird. You gotta be cool. I'm a pretty chill person. You gotta be chill too."
- "Pugs give good hugs."
