After a summer in which he opened a performance for legendary music artist B.B. King, Stephen Norwood capped off the fall and kicked off the holiday season performing live at the 67th lighting of Macy's Great Tree in Atlanta as this year's Macy's Rising Star. The nationally televised event was attended by thousands, and Norwood's name was on the lineup with 2006 American Idol finalist Mandisa and country singer Josh Turner. In this artist profile, the 18-year-old Gwinnett resident talks to staff writer Deanna Allen about his big performances, as well as what's up next for him in his budding career.
