The youngest of six siblings, Blessing Offor was born in Nigeria, and 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 now via Chris Tomlin’s Bowyer & Bow imprint in partnership with Universal/Capitol Christian Music Group. Listen to Brighter Days HERE.
2022 has proven to be a breakout year for the Nashville-based singer/songwriter. Recently, Blessing garnered a 2022 Dove Award nomination for “New Artist of the Year.” Earlier this year, Blessing released his debut EP Brighter Days to critical acclaim, with the self-titled track peaking at #2 on Billboard’s Christian Airplay chart. Blessing made his national television debut on NBC’s The Kelly Clarkson Show, and subsequently released the Brighter Days (Live Sessions) EP, featuring intimate live versions of tracks from his debut EP. Additionally, Blessing collaborated with GRAMMY® winner TobyMac on the latter’s most recent single “The Goodness.” The track has officially reached the top of Billboard’s Hot Christian Songs chart - slotting in at #1 – marking Blessing’s FIRST appearance at the top of the chart.
