Onomen has released a Gospel album called 'Not Letting Go'.
The title song 'Not Letting Go' is a song about holding on to God despite the circumstances. 'Every word, lyric, and melody in this album is a response to God's never-ending love and his perfect plan for me,' Onomen says. 'My intention was to release an album with words that would encourage and remind us of God's consistent love and perfect plan.'
'My primary goal in writing "Not Letting Go" was to express my heart's response in these simple words: "I AM NOT LETTING GO." Months before that, I had been pondering the overwhelming love of Christ, which does not change despite our shortcomings. I've seen that when we fail, He has already made provision for our redemption through Jesus, isn't that amazing? I told myself that if He won't let go, neither will I. So even if I'm not meeting expectations when I should be, and I'm only hanging on by a thread, I won't let go. I chose it as a solo piece because I want everyone who hears and sees it to enjoy it.'
After years of writing and composing songs for various local and national choirs, Onomen, a Nigerian-born Canadian, made her debut with the single 'I Love You' in 2021. Prior to the release of this debut album, 'Not Letting Go', she has released two other singles, 'My King Is Coming' and 'Holy Spirit.' Onomen is an impassioned gospel singer who believes that music can bring healing and clarity. She has worked with several choirs comprised of the elderly, adults, young adults, and children, and her goal is to continue raising passionate worshippers for these challenging times. Onomen currently works part-time as a vocal trainer and part-time with a choir she co-founded.
