A few highlights on “Living Legend” includes the introductory song, “Find A Way”. A hard hitting soulful blues song where the movement is reminiscent of classics done by great artists like Aretha Franklin. It’s a story about my up-bringing, watching my families struggle, inspired me to “Find A Way” out of the struggle. The Song “96”, is a Pop/R&B radio-friendly mid tempo song co-Written by R&B Legend Keith Sweat. “96” is about a man in a relationship asking his lady to go back in time to the beginning when the romance was brand new. Then of course there is the rendition of, the classic “It’s A Man’s World”, originally recorded by The God-Father of Soul, James Brown, “I recorded this song with Al Green’s original Hi Records Band in Memphis, TN at Royal Studios. It was a moving experience and a highlight in my career,” adds Omar. “The One”, is a sultry and sensual song with a nostalgic feeling of Marvin Gaye that also embodies various dance elements such as salsa and two-step. This album also includes my latest single “Love Song”, a mid-tempo R&B Groove dedication that confesses the greatest love a man could have for a woman.
