Khalid joined this year's TIME 100 Gala after being included in the magazine's list of most influential people. Way to prove his doubters wrong!

Yep, the "Young Dumb & Broke" singer revealed he was bullied back in high school: "I can remember, being in high school - my senior year - going to a basketball game and the whole opposing side chanted 'Khalid can't sing'. And honestly I wanted to cry and I went home and talk to my mom and she was like, 'They're just mad because you're chasing after your dreams. You can't give up on that dreams, you got to keep on.'"

Khalid continued giving advice to aspiring artists, "I believe that persistence is key to keep going and you got it."
