In his eloquent and poignant story, Zeshan describes his unique upbringing from South Asian parents. After studying Opera in college, he decided to blend an eclectic combination of his talents. A conservatory-trained vocal virtuoso, he is as home with classic and neo-soul as he is with ghazal, qawwali, gospel or opera. Zeshan recently performed for President Barack Obama's birthday at the first White House Eid celebration.
His profound appreciation for culture, heritage, and arts is captured in his story. This story was recorded in partnership with StoryCorps and MALA.
