Michael W. Smith
Versatile, creative and multi-talented would all be accurate descriptions of an artist who has created award winning pop albums, moving instrumentals, Christmas classics, and powerful worship projects. Michael W. Smith, however, would simply describe himself as a very ordinary family man that has been blessed with a career he could never have imagined.
Michael W. Smith has lived a life that, if it were in a book, would be hard to believe. In addition to extensive domestic touring 2013 alone took him to locations such as the White House, The Grand Ole Opry, a sold out Carnegie Hall debut and in remote locations as diverse as Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Singapore, Bahrain and United Arab Emirates.
With multiple Grammy, Dove and American Music Awards, along with over 15 million records sold, he is most certainly established as a giant in any genre of music. However, it is the lives impacted, the hope renewed, and the ever-changing opportunities to change the world through the message of his music, that keeps him motivated.
Music has always been and will always be his passion but perhaps now, more than ever, Michael W. Smith has a clear understanding of his calling. He doesn’t think much about the latest trends or what the “next big thing” is going to be. As a result he is creating music that is almost timeless in its approach. As much as he has accomplished and the things he has done, he will tell you, in all sincerity, that he believes “the best is yet to come!”
