Smokie Norful Celebrates CD Release with Hometown Concert and Kicks off Week of Appearances

Grammy Award winner Smokie Norful begins a week of appearances and performances as part of a full-scale promotional tour for his new album Forever Yours.

Norful, best known for his award-winning, crossover hit “I Need You Now,” returns with Forever Yours, his first all-new studio album in 8 years.  Forever Yours offers great versatility which is a clear result of working with a number of talented and accomplished producers including Tony Dixon, Derek D.O.A. Allen, Aaron Lindsey, Elvis Williams (Blac Elvis) and Warryn Campbell. From ballads (the strongest weapon in Norful’s arsenal) to contemporary and pop-styled songs to upbeat praise and worship, Forever Yours has something for everyone.

Currently his Top 10 single “No Greater Love,” is rising on the Gospel chart and his recent performances of new songs “Imperfect Me” and “I Need A Word,” have been touching listeners around the country.

Smokie will celebrate the release of the project with an “Evening with Smokie Norful.” The hometown concert and exclusive conversation will take place at his church, Victory Cathedral Worship Center, located at 369 N. Weber Road, Bolingbrook IL 60490, on Friday August 1st. Doors open at 6pm and the event starts promptly at 7pm. Admission is free with the purchase of Forever Yours. For fans unable to get to Chicago, the event will be streamed live on

He’ll then head to Washington DC, New York City, Atlanta and Memphis for several more appearances. Check out the schedule below for more information go to
