ebony_omar_headshotYears of preparation, hard work and sacrifice undergird every note of the new release, “You Reign” from Detroit’s latest Gospel standout, Ebony Omar. When “You Reign” debuts on March 19, 2013, it will be the latest step of consistency and marked progression in the ministry of this budding new artist who made the final 10 for the “Sunday’s Best” auditions for the Detroit region.

Growing up around music, it was clear to Ebony Omar Perry what his passion in life would be. His musical influences included Marvin Winans, Kim Burrell, Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston. His earliest success in music began at the age of 8, when he sang a cover of the Sam Cooke classic “What a Wonderful World.” At the age of 13, he began directing the senior choir at his church and went on to win several choral competitions while in high school.

Ebony Omar studied science to become a teacher and work in education. He continued his post secondary education and obtained a Masters in Principalship from Central Michigan University.

He founded a choir, “The Levitical Voices,” who traveled the state of Michigan performing in front of thousands and became known for their distinct sound. Ebony Omar went on to join Perfecting Church where he was placed in the Detroit Recording Choir: Perfected Praise and the Praise and Worship team.

He has been compared to the likes of Isaac Carree, Brandy Norwood, Kenny Lattimore, Tonex, and Joe. Ebony Omar is easily recognized by his distinguished tenor voice. While working as a teacher for the Detroit Public Schools, Ebony Omar kept music alive within the schools of Detroit, forming and directing choirs at Rosa Parks Middle School and Durfee Middle School. During this time, Ebony Omar shared the stage with musical greats such as Donald Lawrence, Oscar Hayes, L\’Renee, Martha Munizzi, Kurt Carr, Triumph Church Choirs and Pastor Marvin Winans. He received words of encouragement from musical “Big Brother” Richard Smallwood, and guidance from the Holy Spirit.

His new release, “You Reign” will delight Gospel listeners and will be available via iTunes and Amazon on 3/19/13.
