OMI (born Omar Samuel Pasley) is the breakout singer/songwriter behind the hit song Cheerleader. He will perform the song on America’s Got Talent on August 12. In between promos and rehearsals at Radio City Music Hall, OMI made a New York Video Diary. He said: “I didn’t see it [fame] coming this fast. And having such a global impact, I don’t think it’s something anybody can expect.”
For his brief stay in New York City, OMI has had to sing Cheerleader over and over…in radio studios, on boats…but he says his New York experience has been great. “I loved every minute of it.” So have his fans. America’s Got Talent airs Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 8pm on NBC.
