    Introducing Gospel Artist Oya Thomas on LIF Talk with Cherie!

    in Music

    Oya Thomas has spent her life delighting in the freeing, connective force of music. The beginning of her musical and spiritual journey can be traced back to Oya’s earliest experiences – joyful impressions that have added a genuine playfulness to her work’s mantra even as she matures as an artist. At the age of three, deeply inspired and encouraged by her father and personal hero Ezekiel and his distinctive voice, she began to sing tirelessly, writing poems and stories on the spot and setting them to music. Her ability to express herself fluidly through song strengthened the bond between the members of her tight-knit family as they gathered around the piano to revel in her enduring enthusiasm and colorful world perspectives.

    In Oya’s words, “To feel is such a great experience in and of itself, and to be able to do it with something I have inside me, from the depth of my spirit is like a wonderful sharing that I cannot put into words. A smile, applause singing along, someone saying how good I made them feel makes everything worthwhile. These experiences are gratifying to me as an artist and performer and because I know I am helping someone else connect to their emotions in a positive way. I always said I wanted to use my talents to see God’s great earth, and so I am.”

    With deep, immovable roots nourished by her father’s love and support as well as an innate fervor for growth as an artist and a human being, Oya continues to ignite her exceptional spark through her art.

    Spirit of Oya is her debut solo album.

    Oya - Transformation

    in Spirituality

    Oya is a cleansing force. Invoke her to clear the air and create a safe space to settle disputes.
    We see the process of things being swept clean as she is the hurricane and winds that remove objects and completely reface the landscape/properties of ownership. Within the vortex of her storm Oya holds all that that she removes so, in essence, she represents the supplanting or reassigning of power and resources. She brings resources from one place to another, just as a storm does.
    She has the ability to be housed and worked with through your ability to see through the storms ferocity will allow you to see the actual fortune that the storm carries.
