The Downtown Smithfield Development Corporation is pleased to announce that Natural Wonder will headline the 34th annual Ham & Yam Festival presented by Stevens Sausage and Agri Supply, with a free concert scheduled for 8:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 5.

Led by Gabriel Bello, a #1 Billboard-ranked vocalist, producer and multi-instrumentalist, Natural Wonder, the Ultimate Stevie Wonder Experience, channels the energy and artistry that has made Stevie Wonder an icon across decades and genres. Whether it’s the Motown-era hits like “Signed, Sealed, Delivered” and “My Cherie Amour,” the fusion-flavored “Superstition,” the signature harmonica solo of “Isn’t She Lovely,” or Stevie’s modern masterpieces, Bello and the industry veterans impress with a seemingly unending barrage of hit songs that span the Stevie Wonder catalog. Natural Wonder brings real musicianship, a dynamic show, and a deep, studious love of the Stevie Wonder legacy to the stage for an epic performance that recreates the look, feel, and sound of a Stevie set that blows audiences away.

“We are thrilled to have Natural Wonder at the 2018 Smithfield Ham & Yam Festival,” states Sarah Edwards, festival organizer and Executive Director of Downtown Smithfield Development Corporation. “They’re an incredibly talented and entertaining group with a show full of hits that will have the audience up dancing and singing along!”
