No one commands attention like O'Neil Watson when he speaks with authority and wisdom that comes from experience and his unwavering faith in God. Even with his unique R&B and Jazz fusion of gospel, O'Neil Watson is poised to take on today's gospel music scene.
Born and raised in St. Ann, Jamaica to parents Daphne and Earl, O'Neil's childhood was filled with an eclectic array of calypso, classical, pop and jazz. However, his greatest musical influence was found within the church, a blend of soul- stirring classic hymns and contemporary gospel. His ministry was birthed at the tender age of six as he was drawn to the choir. Recognizing O'Neil's love of music, his family encouraged him to pursue singing professionally. He performed in many musical productions and vocal competitions, winning several awards including the coveted Jamaican Cultural Development Commission Award for performing Arts.
