Multi-talented singer songwriter Blessing Offor has released the latest single, “How Much You Mean To Me,” from his upcoming debut EP Brighter Days. Ethereal synthesizers anchored by distant guitars set the mood for the new track before Blessing’s captivating voice takes the spotlight. With his smooth, wide-ranging vocals, Blessing goes on to disclose a love he has found that “no song can contain,” and “no words can ever explain.” Blessing’s expressions of positivity and affection backed by catchy, earworm melodies lay the bedrock for his upcoming EP.
To coincide with the single, Blessing has also released a live video for “How Much You Mean To Me (Live from East Iris).” The video gives an intimate glimpse into Blessing’s musical abilities, as he self-accompanies on the piano while giving an effortless vocal performance. Watch “How Much You Mean To Me (Live from East Iris)” above.
Blessing is set to release his debut EP Brighter Days on February 25th via Chris Tomlin’s Bowyer & Bow imprint in partnership with Universal/Capitol Christian Music Group. Filled with thought provoking lyrics alongside Blessing’s powerful voice and expert musicianship, Brighter Days is full of infectious optimism that jumps right out of the speaker. Blessing’s ability to bring emotion to life is apparent, and each song acts as a window into Blessing’s extraordinary make-up. The EP’s title track and lead single has already been making an impact, as “Brighter Days” has seen placement in episodes of ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy and CBS’s The Equalizer.
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. Blessing’s seven song EP Brighter Days is out on February 25th.
