Jacob Khalil BIO

Jacob Khalil is a Texas born, New York City based entertainer who effectively blurs the lines between jazz and modern pop music. His sound is often described as something between John Legend and Harry Connick Jr. and his original songs have been hailed by Broadway World as, “Radio ready…chart toppers.”

Jacob maintains a busy schedule of performing nightly in New York City, touring nationally, and collaborating with songwriters and producers in Los Angeles and Nashville. His voice has been featured on hundreds of recordings, including the feature films “Cryo”(June 2022) and T.C. Christensen’s “The Fighting Preacher.” He has headlined a showroom residency in Las Vegas, performed “This Is The Moment” on live radio with Frank Wildhorn, and he is often called upon to sing the national anthem for NBA games and other special events.

Jacob is a proud Palestinian-American musician. Originally from Sugar Land, TX, Jacob first experienced music at the feet of his mother, a Louisiana native with a voice for singing jazz, R&B, and soul music. After years of imitating his mother, Jacob began to find his own sound in everything from classical music to musical theater to Top 40 hits he heard on the radio.
