Steele came out the victor in a fierce display of talent which saw the top 10 contenders in this year’s competition going head to head at the National Arena on Sunday night.

Her song, Arise Mighty Warrior, which serves as a call to Christians to be fearless on the battlefield for Christ, found favour with the judges and was undoubtedly a crowd favourite.

Aside from the title and the winning trophy, Steele walked away with a cash award of $500,000 courtesy of the JCDC, another cash award of $100,000 courtesy of JamCopy for Writer of the Winning Song, a Laptop courtesy of Universal Service Fund, day passes courtesy of Royalton, White Sands, gift packages courtesy of Palace Amusement, Bresheh, Bookophilia, Black Ink and May Sparkling Juice.

The night’s other winners were Dannareo Fearon who copped second place with his song, Order My Steps and Dycinta 'Sister Althea' Nunes-Holgate, who walked away in third place for her song, Bawl Out.
