Church-goers were blown away by Khalif’s powerful, mature vocals, ultimately labeling him as the “the boy with the golden voice.” Besides his amazing singing abilities, Iam Khalif became known in his neighborhood as a talented dancer and choreographer, often performing “shows” on the front stoop of his parent’s row house.
