Blessing Offor Lyrics

[Submit a Song]

Back to: B

The youngest of six siblings, the Nigerian-born singer/songwriter immigrated to the United States with his uncle at the age of six. Born with glaucoma in his left eye, Blessing’s parents selflessly sent their son to America in the hopes that he would be able to receive optimal medical care. Several years later, a powerful spray from a water gun damaged his retina, removing the sight in his right eye, as well, yet the disability has yet to deter him. Blessing doesn’t believe his blindness is a hindrance; rather, it’s a gift that affords him a heightened sense of attunement to the world around him.

Eventually, after a stint in Nashville, he landed in New York City.

“Honestly, one of my life goals is to have a No. 1 in every genre,” Blessing ambitiously remarks. “There was a point in my life when I realized that genre was more or less just about differences in vernacular and syntax more than anything. So a good country song, if you put some different instrumentation on it, is a good soul song.”

The singer had a hand in writing each of the selections found on his upcoming debut on Bowyer & Bow/Capitol Christian Music Group. The EP - produced by Hank Bentley (Crowder, Jeremy Camp), Ed Cash (We The Kingdom), and Sam Ellis (Ingrid Andress) - is slated to arrive in 2022.
