A dazzling performer, singer, and all-around artist, Jeffrey Iqbal began his musical career early on, at the age of 10. Born in the U.S. and raised in Delaware, Jeffrey’s parents immediately realized his love for music. As quickly as he could, Jeffrey started developing an understanding of North Indian classical vocals and instrumentals, becoming skilled with the harmonium and dexterous on the tabla. But what he really wanted to do was sing, so he expanded his classical training to include ghazals, qawwalis, and added Bollywood music into his repertoire. Today, Jeffrey performs around the world sharing his unique talents and strongly-held belief in “unity thru music” with hundreds of thousands of fans.
“I am so grateful for all the support I have received from all of my fans and friends around the world! I’m nothing without that support and love from you, and I feel so fortunate to have you in my corner.”
In 2007, Jeffrey was selected by A.R. Rahman—the Oscar®-, Golden Globe-, and Grammy®-award winning composer of Slumdog Millionaire—during a televised talent search to appear on Zee Tv’s Sa Re Ga Ma Pa. This made him the first American-born artist to represent the U.S. on the most prestigious South Asian-televised singing competition. On the show, Jeffrey toured the world with such artists as Shreya Ghoshal, and became the first American-born musician to sing for a Bollywood film.
