From humble beginnings at his parent’s record store in Toronto’s Little Jamaica community to performing on “Sesame Street” as a child and teaching himself, at age seven, to sing Whitney Houston’s “The Greatest Love of All”, Omar has permanently been entrenched in music. By the time he was a teenager, the crooner joined a group called “The Show.” They signed two major label deals, toured across Canada and shared the stage with acts such as Usher, Yung Buck, Ginuwine, 98 Degrees, and Canadian talent Kardinal Offishall, Glenn Lewis, Shawn Desman and Massari. After more than ten years, two Juno nominations, a Canadian Urban Music award, three compilations and an album (“Debt, Sweat and Tears”), Omar went solo.

Omar has continued to display his solo performance savvy. Omar garnered Top 16 success on the final season of Canadian Idol (he was one of the only contestants to get a standing ovation for his unique vocal arrangement of “Ain’t No Sunshine” by Bill Withers) and immediately afterwards solidified himself as a staple on Toronto’s music scene.

The singer has been the requested resident vocalist at Dazzling Lounge “Live Thursdays” and various well-known live music venues. Omar, alongside the resident band “The Recipee”, has performed internationally and, as a unit, shared the stage with artists such as Tank, Brandy Norwood, Deborah Cox, Andy Kim and Mya. Omar has also performed for city-wide events with established corporates such as “The JUNO Awards”, The Legacy Awards, Toronto’s Harbourfront Centre and Toronto’s Summer Union.

Thus far, Omar has worked on placements for artists in Japan, Korea, and the U.S. and is continually requested to join performances and writing opportunities for varying artist genres.

In addition to crafting chart-topping hits for other artists, Omar is gearing up to make a powerful solo debut with his highly anticipated first EP. The singer-songwriter’s seven- song project will launch in 2024, followed by a nationwide tour that promises to captivate audiences and solidify his place in the music industry.
