About Louise Smith

Louise Smith is a veteran songster, songwriter, and musician. She was meant to sing and play the piano! She was born to write a different kind of song. Her mother declared she used to sing in the crib, and when she was a toddler to a young child, she would bang on flat surfaces as if it were a piano.  By age 5, she was given a 22-key organ by her parents.  Before she turned six years old, she would make up little songs. 

 


 

Then one day after kindergarten, she played her 1st song which was a hymn she heard in church Sunday after Sunday, Just as I Am.  Her skill grew by leaps and bounds.  By the time she was seven, she was writing songs and singing them in her home and church.  Her talent was strong enough for her parents to upgrade her small starter organ to a spinet 88 key piano. After turning seven, she started playing for her Sunday School choir.  Then the unimaginable happened.  She was asked to teach the senior choir vocal parts and to play for the church.

She knows she was called by God to sing, write, and play piano.  Music is her life and music has saved her life. At the most tumultuous times with sickness, clinical depression, and low self-esteem, God soothed her with some of her music mentors such as Danibelle Hall, Andre Crouch, Tramaine Davis-Hawkins, Roberta Flack, Aretha Franklin, Patty Page, Karen Carpenter, and Ann Murray. God cultivated her voice through all the men and women who ministered to her.

Louise loves gospel music most but has a jazzy accent; whom she calls JAZZ-PEL.  She is typically a balladeer writer and singer. She is a hymnologist and arranger.

Louise has had two singing groups in previous years, one group called the Charity Singers and the other called the First Commandment Singers, both from Florence, SC. 

Louise has been writing songs well over 50 years.  She has recorded three original albums of her own, as she has recorded with countless recording artists, to include The New Jersey Mass Choir with Donnie Harper, Derrick Brown and W.O.R. (Weapons of Righteousness), trumpeter extraordinaire Husband Linton Smith, and Alfonzo Udell and the Chosen Chorale. She has shared the stage with Shirley Caesar, The Gospel Music Workshop of America, Richard Smallwood, Helen Baylor, John P. Kee, Babbie Mason, Lee Williams, and Dorinda Clark Cole.  Louise has won many vocal music contests, to include the  the Singers Music Arts Conference (SMAC), founded by Dorinda Clark Cole.

Louise’s music can be found on the world wide web and personal appearances with hard copies of her music. She is available to minister in any capacity of music or as a speaker.
