Welcome to the Shine on Greenwood Holiday Lighting Event
Shine on Greenwood 2023 is the inaugural Holiday Lighting Ceremony for Historic Greenwood Avenue in Tulsa Oklahoma. It will feature a mixture of live Holiday, R&B, and Gospel Music led by Tulsa Native Tony Mason and some of Tulsa's finest musicians, singers, and spoken word artists. The event will feature a count-down to Holiday lights lighting the street on Greenwood Avenue along with recognizing a non-profit and their contribution to the Tulsa community. There will be a toy give-away and gifts for those in need of a little Holiday support. We hope to spread some good old Holiday joy and goodness during this Holiday season. Invite your friends and bring your family to Historic Greenwood Avenue and join us for the Shine on Greenwood Holiday Event 2023 November 25 from 6:00pm-8:30 pm.
This event is brought to you by The Ambassador Project Int'l/Mastone Music Productions and Greenwood Main Street.
This event is designed to bring that good old fashioned joy and thanksgiving that comes during the Holidays to Historic Greenwood Avenue! It is also designed to help pay homage to those who built Historic Greenwood and honor their sacrifices and legacies for decades to come. We recognize the need to acknowledge those who went before us in hopes that we can give honor where it is due. We also recognize the need to help lift the burdens that sometimes accompanies the holidays; as some focus on what they have and what they don't. We are aware that is sometimes difficult to deal with the loss of a loved one and that it is especially heightened during this time of the year. Thus, it is our sincere hope that The Shine on Greenwood Event will serve to be an event that helps soften the burden felt during these most beautiful of seasons. We want to bring that shine and sparkle to your holiday this year! Also, it is our desire to be a conduit of gift giving as we plan to recognize the Supporters of Families with Sickle Cell disease with gifts for a few children affected by this disease. Come join us this year for the event. Shine on Greenwood Holiday Event will help to create memories you can add to your lives and carry throughout the days to come! See you there!

Shine on Greenwood Holiday Event is part of a vision created by Tulsa native Tony Mason. Tony Mason is the CEO of Mastone Music Productions/The Ambassador Project Int'l and TMMI. Tony has a proven track record of success in the area of music, whether in ministry or entertainment and his name has become synonymous with success in the music industry. Once called "the man with the golden voice", by Billboard Magazine he has been likened to the great voices of our time as being compared to the likes of “Stevie Wonder” by legendary singer songwriter and producer “Tony Orlando”. Tulsa (GAP Band) lead vocalist and superstar Uncle Charlie Wilson says "Tony Mason can sing anything!" Hailing from the city of Tulsa OK, this multi talented singer, songwriter, producer, musician and author has been primed and is once again bringing his musical prowess back to the forefront! Tony has written for and performed with such nationally known artists as, Charlie Wilson, New Edition, Jodeci, Tony Orlando, Wayman Tisdale, The Bar-Kays, the GAP Band, the DAZZ Band, Jonathan Butler, SWV, SOS Band, Denise Williams, Keith Sweat, Morris Day and the Time, Kirk Whaylam, Gerald Albright, Howard Hewitt, Israel Houghton, Fred Hammond, Donnie McClurkin, Smokey Norfil, and many others. Tony and his brothers Gary and Clifford (Tre) Mason formed a family trio called MASON who released their debut album "Livin on the Edge" in 1987 on Elektra Warner Brothers Records. Their LP spawned two top 40 singles. The first titled "Double Exposure" written by Tony and renowned writer and producer Kae Williams Jr of Philadelphia, landed at #38 in Billboards top 40 during the same year of release. However the songwriting duo of Mason and Williams second single "Pour it On" landed at #2 Billboard Dance in 1987! The Group MASON consisted of Gary Mason (bass guitar), Clifford (Tre) Mason (lead-guitar) and Tony Mason (lead vocalist and guitarist). Tony has recently returned from the highest grossing R&B Concert tour of 2022 called “The Culture Tour” Featuring New Edition, Jodeci and Tulsa’s own Uncle Charlie Wilson as a background vocalist for Charlie Wilson! The 31 city tour included venues like Madison Square Garden, The Boston Gardens, and many other top arena's where Tony was able to sing solo on Charlie’s Tour with the legend himself. During the height of the COVID pandemic Tony also appeared on NBC Universal’s Season 19 edition of “The Voice”; which aired during November 2020.
Inspired mostly by the things he has seen, learned, and felt, Tony expresses his music, and experiences in many ways. His songs reach into the deepest part of human emotion, soul, and spirit, and cause you to think about every word he sings. He embraces such musical styles as: urban, R&B, hip-hop, jazz, pop, Gospel, Urban Contemporary Christian, adult contemporary, rock, metal, and country. Having compassion for global missions and welfare, Tony wrote and produced a song in support of the victims of the "Tsunami" in Indonesia entitled "There is Hope"; and has received acclaim from the citizens, and dignitaries represented there for this hope giving song. In all Tony is concerned about the human condition and hopes that his will help others reconsider life, love, and purpose!
