UPDATED 3/1/14: Steve T is still in the Hospital
We’ve spoken with several people close to Steve and all have indicated that Steve is doing much better. It may be several months before he makes a full recovery. DJ Cho’zyn Boy posted this photo on Facebook recently showing that Steve is pushing forward, despite his current physical limitations.
We’ve also gotten word that Steve and Nonna have been having daily Bible Studies from the hospital.
The Townes Family Fund fundraiser for Steve and Nonna has also been going well. With 16 days left, the campaign has over 500 donors and has raised over $27K of the intended $30K goal for their family. If you have not had a chance yet to give, we are encouraging everyone to prayerfully consider financial support for their family.
St. Louis-based super-producer J.R. confirmed that the couple in a local St. Louis news report who lost two children in a house fire on Monday were Christian hip-hop producer Steve-T and his wife, Full Ride Music Group rapper Nonna.
Steve-T has produced a number of hits for Flame (All In, Move, Show Out), JSon (Brand New) and Fedel (I Will Be). His wife Nonna, is signed to Thi’sl’s Full Ride Music Label as her single “One Woman Man” (also produced by Steve-T) was the first single from the label’s Gurl Code Compilation.
Fox 2 Now in Saint Louis reports:
A family is in mourning in Berkeley, Missouri, after two young children were killed in a house fire early Monday morning. This house fire happened on Airport Road just east of Interstate 170. There were a total of five people in the home when the fire started. A relative says those people were a husband and wife and their three young kids. Investigators say the two children who died were two- and four-year-old boys. We’re told an infant girl, along with the mom and dad, made it out. Full story: Fox 2 Now St. Louis.
Editor’s Note Steve and Nonna were full-time musicians. Besides losing two of three children, it appears that much of their studio equipment and personal belongings were also lost in the fire. In addition, it is expected that Steve will not be able to do much music over the next 6 to 12 months as he will have to recover from injuries sustained in the fire. As such, we are asking everyone who is able and led by the Lord to pray for and help financially support their family during this time. – Wade
