Tamara Omondi is a native of El Reno, OK and is the daughter of Delvin & Etta Nelson. She began singing in the church choir as a child and her first solo was to the song "Amen" at the tender age of 5. At the age of 14, Tamara entered vocal music at Etta Date Junior High under the direction of Sharon Cullison. Cullison began to shape her young voice, both at school and with private lessons. Helen Miner then took the reigns as Tamar's mentor at El Reno High School and guided her to three consecutive state championships.
Tamara received a music scholarship to Northeastern State University in Tahlequah, Oklahoma where she began her journey towards a B.A. degree in Music Performance.
Tamara has also been blessed to sing the National Anthem at various sporting events and had the privilege of opening for Grammy Award winning artist, Tamela Mann. Even with all of the opportunities that Tamara's gift has brought, she never lost her roots as a true worshiper. She's remained conscious to use her voice to bring healing and hope to God's children singing at countless church events, celebrations, nursing homes and hospitals. She has helped various organizations such as March of Dimes and other organizations to bring awareness about their causes.
Tamara is the Founder and CEO of Sox of Love, an organization that collects new cotton socks for children and teens in foster care, the elderly, homeless men and women and our veterans. Over 50,000 socks have been received over the past two years thanks to "Socks Angels" across the country.
Tamara and her husband, Patrick have two sons; Hossam (23) and Nathan (15) who are the lights of her life. Tamara's personal mission in life is no matter what platform she has available to her is to simply be His beacon of light, hope and love.
