Season 22 of The Voice debuted only on 20 September 2022 and we might already have a contender for this year’s title. It is of course Omar (Jose) Cardona we are talking about.
It did not take long into the performance for Omar to shine through. He wowed the coaches, earning a four-chair for his powerful rendition of Journey’s “Separate Ways.”
Let us tell you all that you have been wondering about him in this writing called ‘Omar Cardona Bio’.
Omar Cardona On The Voice 2022
Everyone was blown away by Omar Cardona’s performance and so came some wonderful reviews from the judges. “I haven’t heard a voice like that since the ’80s”, said Gwen Stefani as he also remarked that we never get to hear men sing like that anymore.
John Legend, who was the first to turn after hearing only 12 seconds of Omar’s vocals, recognized in Omar a crazy range that most male singers could never pull off. John also praised him saying he is the kind of artist that could win the show. And so like that, the “All Of Me” singer/lyricist was able to sell himself as a coach to his favorite contestant.
During his audition, Omar said he identifies as a pop artist, but also respects the 80s rock and would love to create his own blend of pop/classic rock music.
Omar Cardona Career/Job
The Voice was certainly not Omar Cardona’s first time performing on stage. He has been a full-time performer for 15 years now, singing at platforms like theme parks, cruise ships, and sporting events.
As of 2022, Omar had already traveled the world and performed in over 20 countries. He sang for Disney, performed at Universal Studios Japan, headlined on cruise ships, and sang background vocals for Jordan Fisher.
At the time of this writing, Omar also performed gigs as a frontman with his band, Epic Party Band. According to the band’s website, they are a multi-generational “SuperBand” that performs concert-style, high-energy shows.
Formerly, for more than 10 years, he also worked for a corporate event company.
Does Omar Cardona Have A Girlfriend?
Yes. Omar Cardona did have a girlfriend as of the time of this writing. Her name is Dani Montalvo (Torres).
A ‘selenophile’ according to her Instagram @xodanimontalvo, Dani was also based in Orlando, Florida as of 2022.
Lately, on 20 September 2022, she took to her IG to express that she is constantly in awe of Omar and who he is. Adding to “I love you” and “I am so proud” she also exclaimed “my boyfriend !!!! I’m screaming !!”
Danielle was born and brought up in Manhattan, New York.
The couple has been together since December 2020. When they marked their one whole year on 19 December last year Danielle took to an IG post to gush that Omar is considerate, selfless, patient, loyal, strong, funny, secure, humble, honest, genuine, gifted, loving, and “literally a dream in human form”. Never had she met anyone so fluent in her, she said, and many other things.
While Omar did not seem as much expressive about his feelings for Danielle (at least in the public). As compared to Danielle’s social media we only saw her a few times on his. Most of the time it is Danielle who keeps on writing about how beyond grateful she is to have Omar in her life.
Yet, he did tell NBC (for The Voice) that he was not interested in singing in front of people until a girl he liked auditioned for the school play. And that by his senior year, he was the lead in the school play and prom king with his girlfriend.
