“With his infectious joy that encourages a sense of contentment, thought provoking lyrics that elicit a second listen, and an inviting voice that draws you in like a familiar friend, Blessing Offor proves that by simply by being who he is, he in indeed special. As the second artist signed to Chris Tomlin’s Bowyer & Bow imprint, in partnership with Universal/Capitol Christian Music Group, Blessing is poised to share his thoughtfully crafted pop instincts and unique perspective with the world.
Blessing’s writing resume reads like that of a veteran. His co-writing credits include Tomlin, Ed Cash, Natalie Hemby, Dallas Davidson, Tyler Hubbard (Florida Georgia Line), Breland, Trevor Rosen (Old Dominion), Lucie Silvas, Corey Crowder and Sarah Buxton, among others. He’s also been featured on recent projects from both Tomlin and Lee Brice.
‘I’m getting to work with people that make me a better writer and artist,’ Blessing reflects. ‘I love cross-pollinating. I think some of the greatest fun in all of this is to sit in someone else’s world. I’m always honored when somebody wants to collaborate.’
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. He also believes his Nigerian blood and immigrant mentality push him to work harder than any of his peers.”
