Multi-talented singer songwriter Blessing Offor has released his double single debut “Brighter Days / Tin Roof,” available on all digital streaming platforms. This marks Blessing’s first release with Chris Tomlin’s Bowyer & Bow imprint in partnership with Universal/Capitol Christian Music Group. Blessing’s powerful voice and proclivity for melody take center stage, showcasing his range while juxtaposing the driving rhythms of “Brighter Days” with the gorgeous tones of “Tin Roof.” If not already evidenced by his slick craftsmanship, Blessing is a go-to songwriter in Nashville, accruing writing credits with top talents Chris Tomlin, Natalie Hemby, Breland, and others.
“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.”
Tonight, fans of Grey’s Anatomy may hear a familiar voice as “Brighter Days” will appear in a brand-new episode of the long-running ABC staple. To hear Blessing’s spot in the award-winning show, tune into Grey’s Anatomy tonight at 9:00pm ET on ABC.
The youngest of six siblings, the Nigerian-born singer/songwriter immigrated to the United States with his uncle at the age of six. Born blind in one eye, Blessing’s 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 school teachers helped nurture his talent, and he soon found himself at Belmont University honing his craft in Music City. Hints of pop, Motown, and soul flourish across Blessing’s music as he sings of optimism, hope, and finding silver linings in dark clouds.
