Jamel grew up listening to classics, such as The Chi-Lites, Luther Vandross, Calvin Richardson, and Musiq Soulchild with his father. As a child, he mimicked these great voices, thus began his love of music. Jamel started singing in the church choir at an early age, at Plaza United Methodist Church.
By the time he entered elementary school, he had begun performing at local talent shows and showcases. At age 10 he wrote my first song, and by high school he was recording my first song! He furthered his music education and attended King’s College studying Modern & R&B sounds. With “Kiss From The Sky” JAMEL is looking to change the game of pop / R & B music with his soulful approach to the artform.
