The Steeles are a group of brothers and sisters: J.D., Fred, Jearlyn, Jevetta and Billy Steele. They have been singing together since they were young children growing up in Gary, Indiana, and began to develop their style and soul in Minneapolis. The award-winning Steeles have recorded and performed with Prince, Donald Fagen, Morgan Freeman, George Clinton, Kim Carnes, Blind Boys, James Cleveland, Mahalia Jackson and many others. They have just performed their 20th holiday show at the Ordway Performing Arts Center in downtown St Paul, and have performed around the world. Some will know Jearlyn and Jevetta from “A Prairie Home Companion,” and many will remember JD Steele from last year’s Big Top Gospel Night with Larry Long. For more information, contact Lake Superior Big Top Chautauqua at 888-244-8368 or visit www.bigtop.org. The show starts at 7:30 p.m.
