Born & raised in Queens, NY where legends such as James Brown, Eli G, Lena Horne, and James Todd Smith (to name a few) come from it's no surprise that Jelani Maleeq (Born Jelani Milik Morris) seemed to have an innate talent in the arts that shined at a very young age. The reason why Maleeq/Milik change the spelling of his name is because Maleeq means (Manifesting Another Legend to Edify Entertainment from Queens)"once again putting queens on the map" he says. His Grandmother (who was a lead vocalist in a swing band/ opera singer) quotes "he started singing and dancing as soon as he could walk and talk." Noticing his budding talent she didn't let his gifts go to waste. At the age of 5 he was taking up dance and drama lessons and was put in the gospel choir in his families local church. These talents would follow him through elementary and jr high where later in high school Maleeq added to his repertoire majoring in choreography & performing arts. The same performing arts bug caused him to major in theater arts in college. Along with his long list of performances Maleeq also made time to join the The J.J. Howell Ensemble, Nu Gamma Psi inc., and is currently teaching classes (ballet, jazz, african, and hip hop) @ the YMCA. . .
