Devyne Stephens On His Holiday Gala:

Music mogul Devyne Stephens, CEO of Upfront Megatainment, will honor luminaries like NBA legend Julius "Dr. J" Erving, superproducer Polow Da Don and veteran news anchor Monica Pearson at his annual holiday gala, âThis Christmas.â

Usher, Kelly Rowland and Atlanta mayor Kasim Reed are also expected to be in attendance at this year's event, which raises money for Upfront's foundation, which teaches aspiring artists/producers the intricacies of the industry and of business in general.

âAfter seeing, firsthand, the impact that music artists have on todayâs youth, I knew creating music-focused programs was the best way for me to give back. Our programs support artistic initiatives that build self-esteem and confidence and develop skills that can be used in education, the community or the workplace," Stephens told AllHipHop. âThe annual holiday gala and fundraiser is one of the most important fundraiser efforts our foundation continues to host. Money raised this year will go towards music and art programs we have planned for 2012.â

The 2011 gala will honor notables that have made a huge impact in the areas of entertainment, sports, and media.
