“During a major time of grief, bereavement & loss, I had to rely on God’s presence totally,” said Smith. “I have always preached about it … multiple deaths made me now live it! Now I understand that even when we have to deal with the absence of those closest to us God’s presence is a gift.”

An ardent supporter of Gospel music, Smith, has regularly given gospel artists and worship leaders from across the country a platform at The House of Hope, and he is now excited to share his music ministry.

Based in Atlanta, Smith continues to build his multi-media brand that includes film, television, content production, books, and music.

“I am deeply excited to launch my label Pebble Street Records,” Smith said. “It is the fulfillment of a lifelong dream, an opportunity to pay tribute to my musical roots and also to allow other gifted people to produce music! God gets the glory.”
