Tommy Boi delivers sweeping vocals on this powerful and hopeful pop ballad about living freely and openly as your true self. “Blessing In Disguise” is now available to stream and download on digital music platforms worldwide.
With Tommy Boi’s booming vocals and dynamic vocal range, he reflects on growing up feeling trapped and the struggle of coming out as gay in his community. “This song is about facing your true inner self and praying to god that person can see the light of day. Praying that the person inside banging to be free actually makes it out,” explains Tommy Boi. “As the child of two pastors, I grew up in a very Christian household. I was doing all the right things in their eyes and was kind of a golden boy. But there came the point where I fell in love with a boy, and after that, I went through a couple of really tough years battling coming out publicly and being rejected by a lot of the community I was raised in.” His heartfelt expression of struggling to come out to the world as gay reminds audiences they are not alone in their journey and not letting external expectations and pressure control their lives. With Tommy Boi’s rich vocals, the delicate simplicity of the piano, and swelling of strings, he delivers a captivating pop ballad to express his hardships as a gay man alongside the many others who are struggling and fighting to live a life true to themselves. “Blessing in Disguise” was co-written with Austen Butler and produced by Elliot Polokoff.
