Born in Savannah, Georgia, Mali Music (né Jamaal Pollard) is poised to be one of music’s most celebrated multi-genre singers. His sound is influenced by neo-soul kings Bilal and D'Angelo, but the Fresno, CA-based soul singer is deeply anchored in the spirit, being the Minister of Music at Faith on the Move Ministries. Before making his debut as an artist, Mali garnered notice as a producer, providing production and vocals for artists like Crystal Aiken. The singer's critically-hailed debut album was The 2econd Coming. He then shifted to a more secular sound which will be showcased on his upcoming second LP, 2014's Mali Is.
