Stephen John Jnr.
In 1999, Stephen was nominated for Best Male Vocalist and Best Gospel Performance at the Trinidad and Tobago Music Awards, copping the Best Gospel Performance award.
It was in 1998 however, that Stephen came to the fore when he won the Trinidad & Tobago Local Full Gospel Song Festival with his own composition “Leaving It All Behind”. He also copped the Best Composed and Best Arranged Song awards.
Stephen continues to grow, recently being nominated in three categories at the Marlin Awards 2008 the Caribbean’s most prestigious gospel music award; Contemporary Vocal Performance of the year Male, Jazz Recording of the year and Special Event Recording Of the year.
Stephen John Jnr’s life is his testimony. His strength was tested in the tender years of his life as he watched his mother battle to single handedly raise five children. He himself also endured battles of his own; having been spared death many times and coming close to losing one of those battles in a car accident in 1992. It was at that point, Stephen developed a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Stephen started singing publicly at the age of fourteen (14 yrs) and began honing his vocal and composing gifts as a member of the Youth Pulse Choir, led by the famous local singer and songwriter, Sterling Gittens.
Stephen has also been sharing his gift with our Caribbean neighbours having sung in Jamaica, at Fun In The Son Festival 2002, Bahamas, at ASAPH 2003, Barbados, Gospel Festival 2007 and 2008, Antigua and Barbuda and Curacao. In both 2003 and 2004, he captured second place at the Caribbean Gospel Festival Finals held in Curacao. He also received the award for Most Original Song in those two consecutive years. Stephen has released one album to date titled In You Presence. This album has received interest locally, regionally and internationally.
Stephen functions as a worship leader at the assembly which he attends with his wife and three children. Stephen holds an Associate Degree in Performing Arts.

Lovely voice and rhythms - I do lots of African drumming-especially Senegalese sabars. Although I'm not a Christian I do like your songs.

I hope that you do not take my comments on the Pipeline as an attack on you or your beliefs. I truly do respect all that you believe and the message of love that you are trying to spread.
We simply disagree on this topic and, I hope we can debate with no animosity.
Please let me know if I cross the line.
Still loving your tunes.
