As a 3-time Apollo winner, Omar Wilson is no stranger to the music scene. He’s opened for artists like Boys II Men and The Neville Brothers. 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 age of only 7. 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 2 consecutive years at the Underground Music Awards held at BB Kings in NYC. He’s recorded with Multi-Platinum selling 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!” Omar and DMX released a single called ‘Faith’ and they connected on the track instantaneously which is audibly tangible. Omar’s voice and personality are contagious. He leaves a long-standing impression wherever he goes, wherever he sings and with whoever he meets.
The newly released single “Passion” is a gritty, soul/hip-hop record fit for a movie soundtrack. The song describes a Bonnie & Clyde relationship. “Passion” is already climbing up the U.S charts and is available for purchase on all digital platforms.
