Have you met Ihsan Bilal?

by Lisa Brown-Hall
Every once in awhile an artist comes along who’s voice and sound is so unique you are forced to stand up and take notice- Ihsan Bilal firmly fits the bill.  A native of Moreno Valley, CA, the eccentric beauty who began singing at the tender of age of 6 honed her talents after being accepted to the illustrious Duke Ellington School of the Arts in DC.  The talented Bilal recently released her highly anticipated new album Big Red Box and of course the Her Style team was on hand for her release party.

If you are in the DC area, Ihsan will be performing at The Apple Store in Georgetown:
When: Friday, August 19th, 8pm-8:45pm
Address:
1229 Wisconsin Avenue NW Washington, DC 20007 (202) 572-1460
