Hall was born on February 6 in Norwalk, Connecticut, but his family moved to Westport, Connecticut when he was around 10 years old.

Real Life Sound Of Music
When he was young, Hall would perform with his sister and parents, Bill and Mary Ann. They formed a singing group called The Hall Family Singers and held concerts, just like the Von Trapp family. They’ve been performing at the Levitt Pavilion in Connecticut for around 20 years.
