Philadelphia’s Bilal transcends the neo-soul label with his classically trained voice, capable of singing opera in seven languages, establishing him as one of the most versatile artists today.

His distinctiveness brought him into the Soulquarians, a fluid collective featuring talents like Common, Jay Dee (aka J Dilla), Ahmir Thompson of the Roots, D’Angelo, Erykah Badu, Mos Def, Q-Tip, and Raphael Saadiq.

His standout neo-soul album, which included collaborations with Mike City, Robert Glasper, and several Soulquarians, reached Billboard’s R&B albums chart’s Top Ten. Having worked with artists such as Beyoncé, Musiq, Clipse, Sa-Ra, Jay-Z, and more, and earning a Grammy nomination for Best Urban/Alternative Performance, Bilal’s show is a must-see event.
