A graduate of Morgan State University, Naomi's musical gifts became apparent during childhood when she began song-writing and performing in her community. Notoriously known as 'the girl who sings', Naomi organized singing groups, worship teams, and choirs within the organizations she was affiliated with, even as a teenager. Her vocal experience includes rhythm & blues and jazz -- but in 2006, she vowed to use her voice as an instrument through which
"God can communicate His desire to have an intimate relationship with each and every person he placed on the earth."
In 2015, Naomi pinned and released the beautiful ballad, "Holding On", a song of hope that encourages listeners to cling to God during times of trouble. The ballad unveils a transparency of emotions while inspiring one to remember that God is everything you need and that He is always within reach. The song has made tremendous impact throughout the country as it has received national media coverage in outlets such as the Examiner Newspaper and the AFRO American Newspaper, and was featured on the nationally syndicated radio talk show, The Bev Smith Show.
Following that effort was the powerful and emotionally charged anthem, "Break Free" which inspires people of all walks of life to remove the boundaries that threaten their forward progress. As an artist who strives to effect positive change in society, Naomi B. often lends her platform to address and raise awareness of important societal issues. She is a staunch advocate for the empowerment of women and girls, and recently received an honorary certificate of recognition, signed by Congresswoman Maxine Waters for her work to educate and empower young women in her community.

In the spring of 2017, Naomi released a music video for "Break Free" to help bring greater awareness to the issue of human sex trafficking. She also released "He Lives", a flavorful and contemporary take on the classic hymn "Because He Lives."
