Stephen John Jnr.
“My desire is to see people healed and delivered by the power of Jesus Christ, through my music as it reflects the trials, challenges and triumphs of my own life."
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 raise five children single handedly. Stephen also had to endure 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, Stephen developed a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
He 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.
It was in 1998 that Stephen came to the fore when he won the Local Full Gospel Song Festival with his own composition “Leaving It All Behind”. He also copped the Best Composed and Best Arranged Song awards.
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.
Stephen has also been sharing his gift with our Caribbean neighbours having ministered in, Jamaica, Bahamas, Barbados, 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 functions as a worship leader at his assembly which he attends with his wife and three children. Stephen is currently pursuing and Associate Degree in Performing Arts.
‘My aim is to become a professional music minister, i.e. songwriter, singer and arranger. I aim also to be well grounded in the truth so as to assist those who need restoration of their whole being.”
