Omar Pérez-Then

Omar likes concon or crispy rice, as you may know it. He’s from the Dominican Republic, and no, he doesn’t play baseball, but he loves to sing and write songs. That’s the reason why he moved to Southern California in early 2007 to start the Commercial Music/Professional Vocalist program at Long Beach City College. For many years, he was an apprentice of the world-renowned Soprano María Remolá, was a “lover” on the cast of “Evita” – the Musical under the direction of Amaury Sánchez, and performed in a small latin band in his native Dominican Republic.

As of late, Omar released a passionate collection of his own compositions in Spanish, on his first EP album “O Mayúscula,” where he treats us with his own personal style he likes to refer to as “Caribbean Soul,” a fusion of his R&B/Soul influences and Caribbean roots. This sound has taken him to venues in New York City, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, and all around the Dominican Republic, his home country, where he has charmed audiences at Casa de Teatro, Hard Rock Cafe – Santo Domingo (as opening act for the Multi-Latin GRAMMY Winning artist, Noel Schajris) and consequently, his own residency for Lunes de Cantautor. Also, serving as supportive musician for artists like J Balvin, Nicky Jam, and Chino y Nacho at the HTV • Heat Latin Music Awards in Punta Cana’s Playa Blanca.

Kim Kardashian West: The Justice Project

Oxygen, the home for quality true-crime programming, debuts a compelling two-hour documentary, “Kim Kardashian West: The Justice Project,” on Sunday, April 5, at 7pm ET/PT.

With 2.2 million men and women behind bars in the United States, more than any other country, Kim Kardashian West is making it her personal mission to address the criminal reform crisis and make an impactful change. This documentary is an inside look at Kim’s efforts to secure freedom for Americans who she believes have been wronged by the justice system. 

In Oxygen’s two-hour documentary “Kim Kardashian West: The Justice Project,” after hearing the story of Alice Marie Johnson, a great-grandmother serving a life-plus-25-year sentence as a first-time nonviolent offender, Kim Kardashian West embarked on a road to advocacy as she campaigned for criminal justice reform and helped convince the White House to grant Alice clemency in June 2018. 

The show captures Kim as she lends a hand to right injustices and advocate for change by exploring the cases of Dawn Jackson, Alexis Martin, Momolu Stewart and David Sheppard, all of whom she and the legal experts she is working alongside believe have been unfairly sentenced. The documentary follows the origins of their individual stories, revealing the devastating circumstances that led them to take the actions that changed their lives forever.

In her crusade to shed light on the criminal justice system and help people who are impacted by incarceration, Kim travels to the prisons, speaks to the families and friends, lobbies public officials, and consults with lawyers as well as her own legal team from #cut50 to develop strategies to facilitate their release. Along the way, the film documents the progress that led to Momolu Stewart’s and David Sheppard’s releases. It also highlights Kim’s growing understanding of mandatory sentencing, the damaging problems of mass incarceration, and the importance of educational programs and rehabilitation efforts for a successful reentry into society.
