In a time where our news feeds continue to be dismal, songs like “I Am Healed” are a welcome breath of fresh air. While the song is an inspiring tale sung wonderfully by Omari, the video takes it to new levels. Filmed in a picturesque wooded area, the colors pouring from the North Carolina foliage of Maggie Valley surrounding Omari jumps from the screen and invigorates those who watch just as much as the encouraging lyrical flow. “I Am Healed” is featured on 2019’s collaborative ‘Healing Project.’ The album features an array of gospel singers including Kevin Downswell, Alaine, Paul Scott, and more.
Omari was born at the start of 1980 on the beautiful and colorful island of Jamaica in Kingston. The birthplace of reggae, music was always around him. So much so he started singing at the age of 12. That soon led him to sing in school throughout college, as well as in his church. He planned to take on the world of secular music, but after being saved he knew the only path he wanted to be on was paved in gospel music. In 2007 that path led him to release his debut single, “Help,” which was praised in The Star Newspaper as “one of the hottest and most inspirational gospel songs in the industry.”
Since then Omari has been nominated and taken home a cascade of accolades including the IRAWMA award in the category Best Gospel Song in 2010, five Marlin Awards nominations, and more. Today he is proud to have participated in the ‘Healing Project,’ and has announced plans of a new album coming later this year titled, ‘Royalty.’
