Personal life[edit]

Khalil Ramos was born January 22, 1996 in Parañaque City, Philippines to parents Lito Ramos and Tessa Nepomuceno, who are entrepreneurs. As of 2011, he was in his third year at Colegio San Agustin-Makati.[7][8]

Khalil was inspired by his father, who started to train him to be a singer at the age of 5. His talent were influenced by Michael Jackson, David Cook, Journey, and John Lennon. However, his musical taste matured from the influences by Queen, Aerosmith, and The Beatles while growing up.[9] In 2011 he trained with Jay Glorioso of the UP Diliman College of Music and Juilliard School of Performing Arts.[8]
