Part of Sing London – the world’s first all-city sing-along!
For the first time ever the master singer, Omar, leads a masterclass at the Jazz Café. Sing R&B and make a fabulous group sound with Omar and Shereece Storrod of Black Voices on Sunday 1st July, from 12 – 2pm. The session is free and all abilities are welcome

Singer, songwriter & musician Omar has been enchanting us with his eclectic mix of soul, jazz, blues, funk & reggae since his first top 40 hit There's Nothing Like This in 1990. Omar has since released six albums, working with some of the world’s best musicians, and has
been cited as an influence by the likes of
D'Angelo, Maxwell, Jill Scott, Erykah Badu & India Arie.
"When I grow up I wanna be Omar", Stevie Wonder.

Sing R&B with Omar is part of Sing London - a festival to unite the city in song. From 29th June – 8th July there will be over 100 events to get people singing - all kinds of people singing all kinds of music in all kinds of places: cafes, museums, piazzas, shops, libraries and even London buses!
