Bilal attended church at a young age and it was here that he grew fond of singing and jazz music. His father encouraged him and regularly took him to visit some of Philadelphia’s best clubs for music. He then went to study at the Philadelphia High School for Creative Performing Arts after which he moved to New York City and enrolled at the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music.
