He embraces the future with an aggressive determination that challenges the music industry to take notice and drives fans to gravitate to his music.
When asked who is Jali and what is his vision, he easily shares, ” I must say that my future endeavors in this industry are to be the best artist/composer that God would allow me to be. Also, to be very successful in opening up future doors for not only other musicians but people that have great talents in other fields that can be beneficial to the industry; whether it is film, photography, video, management, booking, publicist…etc”. He continued on to say,” Things that touches my inner being would be reflecting on my past and how far I have come. The things I have witnessed, and what trials & tribulations I’ve been through as a person, not an artist; and how much it makes me understand and value the simple things of/in life. My parents and family are strong supporters of me and my career.”
Originally known as Jamie Kennell, JaLi was born in Columbus, Georgia. He later moved to Phoenix City, Alabama to deepened his southern roots. From an early age, many considered JaLi an old soul which would later reflect in many of his songs and writings. JaLi’s love for music started where many great R&B legends story began. In his church choir at the age of seven and until this day when he is home in Alabama, he continues to attend that same childhood church with his mother on Sundays. While a junior at Central High School in Phoenix City, Alabama he was a member of a trio called Unkut. After performing in local shows as a member of the group he felt his heart was no longer in it so the entire group decided to cut their ties and each branched out to pursue individual opportunities.
Jali knows there is nothing in the world he can’t accomplish and achieve as long as he continues to believe and put trust and faith in GOD…. the world is within his reach.
