Oni, as her friends call her is a Cologne-based American singer and composer. Your name translated means "strong wind" and reflects her voice, will and life philosophy. In 2011 she convinced the audience and jury with her musical performance and resilience, during the final round "The Winner Is" on SAT.1 . She won the concluding vocal duel and could walk away with 100,000 euros. However with the words "No Guts, No Glory"she went for joker and took the public vote: a million euros or nothing. And she won!!! One could use those words to describe Oni, because it is this confidence in her own skills that has made her the extraordinary singer, she is today ...
She was born in New York. She sang her first solo at rhe age of 3, wrote her first song at 8 and made her first recording at 9. Despite her career as an architect, she kept her passion for music. She 's shared the stage with many famous artists like Patti LaBelle, Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, George Michael, Jennifer Holliday, Stephanie Mills, Teddy Pendergrass, The Clark Sisters, Bill Cosby, Take Six, BeBe and CeCe Winans, Udo Jürgens, Nils Landgren, Faith No More und Jonathan Butler.
