Multi-talented singer songwriter Blessing Offor has partnered with Chris Tomlin’s Bowyer & Bow imprint on Universal/Capitol Christian Music Group to release new music. His double single debut “Brighter Days / Tin Roof,” is available on all digital streaming platforms.
The youngest of six siblings, the Nigerian-born singer-songwriter immigrated to the United States with his uncle at the age of six. Blessing was born blind in one eye, so his parents sent him to the United States in an effort to restore his vision, though unfortunately he lost his complete eyesight by age 10.
Gravitating towards the piano before losing his vision, Blessing’s teachers helped nurture his talent, and he soon found himself at Belmont University. Now Blessing is a go-to songwriter in Nashville, accruing writing credits with top talents Chris Tomlin, Natalie Hemby, Breland, and others.
Known for his powerful voice and very melodic sound, Blessing juxtaposes the driving rhythms of “Brighter Days” with the softer tones of “Tin Roof” on the release.
“I’ve really been looking forward to sharing my songs with everyone,” Blessing says. “Every one of them feels like I’m sharing a part of myself for people to relate to. That’s what ‘Brighter Days’ is about. The idea that we all experience dark days, but it’s those days that lead us to, and that makes the brighter ones worth waiting for.”
