Biography

With the smoothness of Teddy Pendergrass, the soulfulness of Frankie Beverly and the heart of a lion without fear. It’s easy to envision Omar Chandler: A regeneration of soulfulness that compels people to dance in the street. Amazingly his gravel voice emits a pulse stopping, harmonious sound that appeals to the heart of old school lovers, and the hip-hop generation. The Harlem- born Chandler’s music career began way before his first appearance at the Apollo Theatre Amateur night in the 80’s, which he won hands down, according to a very enthusiastic crowd.


Omar’s musical resume highlights the rest of the story: A featured appearance on Rob Base’s hip – hop classic, “Joy and Pain.” He released his debut self-titled album on MCA. He has also added his voice to reggae artist Shelly Thunder’s hit, “Working Girl.” And who can forget the melodious tempo that supported Rich Nice’s hit, “The Rhythm?” Working with notable artists such as Teddy Riley and Bobby Brown really helped expand Omar’s ever-growing popularity in the music industry. And without hesitation we add to that list, top R&B producers Rodney “Dark child” Jerkins, Bink Dog and Pharrell.


Snatching fares in New York City as a cab driver to climbing the ladder of success on the R&B music chart wasn’t an easy ride. Omar had obstacles he had to deal with. And one was trying to fit in. “If it don’t fit, don’t force it, let it happen naturally,” is his new motto. Following his mother’s wisdom and advice, “don’t get on a high horse, and stay humble” has sat Omar on a course to achieve all of his dreams. He doesn’t need to fit in, to satisfy the masses.


“To err is human; to forgive is divine” (Alexander Pope) is a sentiment, quietly thought of, or verbally spoken by many people, including Omar Chandler. That may have compromised his appearance on the music circuit, and had his many fans asking themselves, “Where is Omar Chandler?” The good news is that Omar has overcome some personal, untimely setbacks and he is back on stage performing, where he belongs. The inspiration for his new stage show "Omar Chandler's R&B/Soul Revue" comes from his love of performing on stage and entertaining people.


Omar proudly admits that the lure of the “Big Head Hundreds” is enticing, but it is not the reason why he sings. First and foremost I love to sing, Omar says. “And I will always sing, whether or not I’m getting paid!” Proudly Omar admits that his desire is, through this gift of singing that God has blessed him with, to help others to put a smile on their face, and in their heart. Now how is that for loyalty to an art you love?
