Lorenzo Owens has a gift of song that moves the soul. Vibe Magazine exclaimed, "Owens is a true balladeer. His silky smooth soulful voice glides through melodies with ease." Oprah Winfrey exclaimed, "He has star presence, star quality and star essence! Need we say more?"
Lorenzo joins talented singers like Brian McKnight and Maxwell who are introducing new tones in the R&B genre. With a sound reminiscent of legends Smokey Robinson, Marvin Gaye and Donny Hathaway coupled with timeless, poignant lyrics, Lorenzo delivers a thoughtfully creative musical experience.
A Milwaukee native now residing in Chicago, Lorenzo discovered his passion for singing while in college. He reflected, "I understood that there was an irreplaceable energy I received from people when I sang." After being selected out of thousands to compete on Oprah’s Pop Star Challenge, Lorenzo impressed millions with his rendition of Stevie Wonder's All is Fair in Love and quickly solidified his place as a finalist in the competition.
His hit Rainbows, which was prominently featured in President Obama's campaign commercials, moved millions more with its inspirational message of hope and change. His uplifting theme Wanna See You Smile was recently featured in Verizon's national advertising campaign.
Lorenzo's last CD, Better Days: The Encore, advanced his artistic work. Songs like Light -N- Darkness, with its exhalations of love; Wanna See You Smile; and Passionate Inseparable distinguish this CD by its positive love message. His magnificent voice and dazzling smile supported by the production prowess of Grammy award-winning producer, Michael J. Powell (Anita Baker, Tyrese, Aretha Franklin), will undoubtedly establish Lorenzo's fan base in record time.
His soon to be released single, What Kinda Man will challenge his listeners with yet another perspective of love as he delves into the shadow worlds of domestic violence and healing. He is an artist not to be missed.
