SINGER AND SONGWRITER OSCAR WILLIAMS CELEBRATES HIS BIRTHDAY WITH THE RELEASE OF HIS NEW SINGLE, “CRUSHING IS NOT THE END”
MID TEMPO BALLAD FEATURES POWERHOUSE SINGERS, TONYA BAKER AND APRIL NEVELS
JANUARY 13, 2022 (DALLAS, TX) — Singer, Musician and Songwriter, Oscar Williams, has so much to celebrate. Not only is today (January 13th) his birthday, it is also the release of the sophomore single from his debut EP, Speak Life, Volume 1, entitled “Crushing Is Not The End.”
The song features two of today’s most dynamic voices, Tonya Baker and April Nevels and boasts prolific lyrics, “If you’re in a storm, you can make it, you get knocked down, get back up again, you may have heartache and some pain waiting for the sun to erase the rain and you want to know, does it get better from here.”
“Crushing Is Not The End was inspired by my pastor, Bishop TD Jakes and a book he wrote called Crushing. I wrote this song to remind people that there is life after tragedy, hope after heartache, purpose out of pain..if you hold on you will learn that crushing is not the end,” says Williams.
His debut EP, Speak Life, Volume 1, was released at this same time last year and Crushing Is Not The End was one of the standout tracks. In addition to contributing 100% of the writing on his debut EP, Williams is also responsible for penning songs for Grammy® winning artists Tamela Mann, Smokie Norful, Karen Clark-Sheard and others.
