She will be performing several songs from her album and then spending time speaking and signing autographs.
As a breakout-new artist, Starbucks will be selling her CD in their 1429 Third Street Promenade, Santa Monica, CA 90401 location through June 23rd and Lufthansa airlines will be playing her music on their world music channel throughout the month of June. For those that aren’t drinking coffee or flying, they can find her in Global Rhythm magazine that will be reviewing her album in their issue on stands July 5th. Her song “Mujje” will be featured on the magazine’s summer CD sampler. For those on vacation this June and July, they will likely hear her music in over 1000 spas and wineries nationwide as well.
Her current single “Mujje” is getting a lot of traction at internet and college radio stations and her Gospel single “He Won’t Leave You” produced and co-written by Warryn “Baby Dubb” Campbell continues to gain momentum at the Gospel format. Videos for both songs are also being worked to appropriate outlets. Omega is currently doing select tour dates and is looking to schedule a more extensive tour for the Fall.
Omega began her musical life as a child prodigy. At the tender age of four, she was enrolled into the internationally acclaimed African Children's Choir, a choir that usually only enrols African orphans aged 7-12. She toured the world with the choir, and it was from this experience that she blossomed into the singer she is today. Upon her return, Omega spent the next several years growing up in an orphanage, which her mother, who raised over 100 orphans, opened in Uganda. Surrounded by the suffering that characterized her country for the next 10 years of her life, Omega’s experience in the orphanage became one of the strongest foundations of her work ethic and continues to motivate her to give back to her society through her music.
