About Michael W. Smith:
You do not want to miss out on the opportunity to see this talented performer live in Branson! With more than three decades of hits and influential gospel songs, he brings with him a delicately-honed craft and personal experience that adds to the emotion and real factor of the show. You will be swept away in worship as you enjoy wonderful hits. Not only is he a talented singer and songwriter, but he also has written songs for the likes of Sandi Patty and Amy Grant, the latter of which he toured with as a keyboardist. A true jack-of-all-trades, you will witness undeniable talent at this show.
He got his start as many singer/songwriters did - in Music City. His Nashville, TN stint, however, was not without struggle. He wrestled with the demons of alcoholism and drug use for years until he re-evaluated his life and forged a new and stronger relationship with God. Once he found himself and Jesus again, he succeeded in producing countless albums and hits, one of which even reached #1 on contemporary music charts. Just a few of his most popular songs include 'Friends,' 'Place in This World', and 'Above All.' He was even named one of the Most Beautiful People in the World from People magazine! However, he truly prides himself on providing an outlet for worship and music that brings people closer to God.
