No stranger to spreading light with his chart-topping inspirational music, award-winning new artist Stephen B. Steward is set to host the 2013 Pasadena Mayor’s Annual Holiday Tree Lighting on December 5th from 5:30pm-7:30pm PST.
Set to air on the Crown City’s own cable television network KPAS, the festive event, hosted at Pasadena’s City Hall, will see Steward act as the Master of Ceremony and a featured performer. On hand to lend a stirring live rendition of the classic Nat King Cole holiday favorite “The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire)”, Steward will be accompanied by accomplished 15-year-old pianist Sunee James – a participant in his nonprofit youth music program LOV Olive Branches.
Mayor Bill Bogaard will perform the ceremonial tree lighting at 6 p.m.
The event comes before Steward’s 2014 national debut album ENTER YOUR GATES, led by the inspiring single “With My Whole Heart” – his soul stirring collaboration with Grammy® winning gospel legend Andraé Crouch.
Steward is an award-winning gospel singer, songwriter, and producer whose contemporary worship stylings have seen him touted as one of the genre’s top rising acts.
Earlier this year Steward nab three 2013 Prayze Factor People’s Choice Awards and is currently nominated for three 2014 Rhythm of Gospel Awards including ‘Worship/Praise Artist of the Year’.
