The band's name comes from the phrase Insha Allah, Arabic for "If God wills it. " "We thought of the name after our dad came back from Iraq," said Inshalla's lead vocalist, Mychael Wright. Mychael and his brother, Morgan, the band's drummer, said they weren't nervous for their father's life when he was sent to Iraq to cover the war. Their dad, Kelly Wright, is a reporter for Fox News Channel. He was sent to Iraq just before Saddam Hussein was captured, the boys said. Just as it might have been God's will for their father to return months later, it was probably fate for the boys to practice music.
