DJ Khaled is popularly known by music-lovers for his collaborations with artists including Beyonce, Justin Bieber, Rihanna, Jay-Z, Drake and Snoop Dogg.

His fan base continues to increase among music lovers and celebrity artists from all over the world, especially following a performance of John Legend’s “All of Me” on NBC’s prime time hit show Little Big Shots.
