    Khiry (born November 8, 1973), Tajh (born December 10, 1976), Hakim (born March 27, 1975), and Bilal Abdulsamad (born April 17, 1978) started singing in their hometown of Carson, CA, when Bilal was five and Khiry nine. Originally, it was Khiry and Hakim, then Tajh and Bilal joined when they started entertaining in public for tips. Showing tremendous promise and God-given talent, their parents, Jabari and Angela Abdulsamad, encouraged them to follow their dream, telling them: "This is America, you can be anything you want." 
    The Boys initially started by singing at the beach in Venice, California, for spending money. Soon they decided it was time to take it a step further by performing at local talent shows and working the private party circuit. They became very well-known and popular in the Southern California area, and soon easily had several record companies wanting to sign them. 
    "Dial My Heart" zoomed to number one R&B the winter of 1988 and "Lucky Charm" duplicated the feat on April 1, 1989, and each stayed on top one week before falling off. "Crazy" became their third R&B number one the fall of 1990. 
    In 1994, when they thought they would come out with another album as The Boys, they redirected their outlook on life, and moved to Gambia, West Africa. From there they decided to create inspiration and spiritual music. They tried to go mainstream with their music but the record companies weren't ready. So they went underground and have been there for some years now. Now they are ready to come out. Their name name is Suns of Light.
