Fast rising R&B singer and songwriter, Jels J. Rue, also known as Jels Quiah has disclosed of plan to “heal the world with his music.”

Jels holds a degree in Business Marketing and Public Relations and currently lives in Los Angeles, California.

In a recent interaction, Jels also hinted about the new music projects he’s working on for 2021.

Jels, who started recording at the age of 14, also spoke glowingly about his Liberian roots.

“I am proud of my Liberian roots and African heritage so I like representing my origin”, Jels said. I have experienced war and suffering, it made me very suspicious of people and when I first moved to the US I got into lots of fights because I had a lot of anger I was holding inside me.

Born on September 18 1993 in Monrovia, during the Liberian war, he disclosed that and is the only child of a single mother and relocated to the U.S in 2001 with his mother as refugees escaping the Liberian civil war.

He said while in Liberia, he got hit by a car when he was 2 years old and the doctors thought he was going to make it “but thanks to prayers from his mother and grandmother I woke up from a 2 day coma.”

Although he had to learn how to do everything again, from crawling to using his hands, he believes God gave him a second chance in life.

After relocating to the US, Jels grew up in Philadelphia in the hood. He said had a rough time growing up, and was forced to be tough at a young age.

He got into fights because of the name he made for himself. According to him, there was a time he and his friends threw a huge party, but the promoter did not want to pay them so they got into a fight and had to leave early because the party got shut down by the police.

He said he went with some friends to a store to get some food, where 12 guys from the party, followed and attacked them. He was 16 at the time.
