Omar Wilson - The Good Life
Thursday, July 29, 2010

The old axiom that those who don’t know the past are doomed to repeat it doesn’t really apply to Omar Wilson. The raspy voiced soul singer knows the past, but there’s one aspect of it he’s hoping to repeat.

“I look at everybody from Bob Dylan to Old Blue Eyes, to Bob Marley,” he explains, “they were just like us. They were young, they were inspired, they were passionate and they were setting their mark, what the world’s gonna look at them as forever, in stone. That’s all I think about every day. Eighty years from now when I’m dead and gone are people still gonna be inspired, are people still gonna be able to gravitate and be a part of my music?”

With artists like Aaron Neville and LL Cool J approaching him after shows to give him words of encouragement, and Angie Stone and DMX lining up to work with him, Wilson is already on his way to achieving those goals.

A tirelessly hard worker, Wilson’s second single, “The Good Life,” is about to hit airwaves, he’s readying his first official album, The Voice, for a late summer/early fall release, and he’s heading to LA later this month to shoot the pilot for an upcoming NBC show titled Hot Chocolate Soul. Soul Train still managed to catch up with him, though, to find out more about his old school musical ideologies, the inspirations for his style, and why he’s campaigning to be the people’s R&B singer.
