Jamal Shuriah

Jamal Shuriah was born in the Bronx, Nyc! His aunt is an avid theatre goer and was the one who first discovered his hidden talents. She signed him up for voice lessons and anything else theatre related. His first performance opportunity happened when he sang for "Martin Luther King day," at his Elementary school in first grade. Graduating from the Hartt School with a BFA in Musical Theatre, is where he gained most of his theatrical training. His dance training took place mostly at Broadway Dance as well as from various choreographers he's met along his travels. His interests include traveling, cooking, sketching, and learning any new trade he can get his head around. He booked his first big job with Disney Cruise Lines, playing roles such as Simba in "Golden Mickeys," Jaq in "Twice Charmed, and Scar and Jafar in "Villains Tonight."

His favorite saying would have to be to "Make Things Happen!" it's up to you to fight for your dreams.
