Naomi Striemer

Musical Artist

Called ‘The Melodic Debut of the Year’, and hailed as the ‘Diva of the Decade’, Naomi Striemer was praised by Billboard Magazine in the same categories as the top vocalists of our time. “Remember the first time you heard Whitney, Mariah, and Celine…” She worked with legends such as Carlos Santana and American Idol’s Randy Jackson, and was quickly rising in the secular music industry.

But one conversation changed it all.

In the narrow hallway of a hip-hop studio, a chauffeur told her, “I had a dream about you last night. An angel came to me and told me he had a message for me to tell you.”

That message shook Naomi to the core and forced her to reexamine her life. Standing on the threshold of everything she had ever dreamed for herself, Naomi knew she had a decision to make. Would she stay and watch her dreams unfold, or walk away to pursue an incomparable God?

Naomi Striemer in Concert

Naomi tours the world with gifted story-telling, sharing her testimony, and powerfully crafted, spiritually uplifting music.

Naomi often speaks on topics such as: “Discovering God’s Purpose For Your Life”, “Our Plan versus God’s Plan”, “How the World Entices You”, and “Experiencing Major Highs and Lows”. Naomi’s first-hand encounters and God-centered focus is both engaging, heartfelt and relatable.
