ABOUT OMAR WILSON
As a three-time Showtime at The Apollo Amateur Night winner, Omar Wilson is no stranger to the music scene. He has been able to grace stages abroad opening for the like of Boyz II Men, Justin Timberlake, The Neville Brothers and others. His music speaks to his own personal experiences growing up in an urban environment bridging the gap between Hip-Hop and Soul. Growing up 30 minutes from New York City, church members at the Calvary Baptist Church in his hometown noticed his ability to have a spiritual impact through his singing at the young age of seven years old. While performing regularly in New York, fans gravitated towards his unique, gritty vocals. It was at that point that Omar realized what he was born to do, Soul Music. Omar was named Best R&B Male of the Year for two consecutive years at the Underground Music Awards. He has worked and written with Multi-Platinum selling recording artist Angie Stone and DMX featuring them on songs he wrote. Angie Stone was quoted saying “Working with Omar Wilson came naturally and he is one to watch!”. A few years back, Omar released the single, “Faith” featuring DMX.
Omar’s voice and personality is contagious. He leaves a long standing impressions wherever he goes, wherever he sings and with whoever he meets. Omar will be releasing his debut album, “Living Legend” early 2019.
