Michael W. Smith's Albums * Smith's Lyrics



Michael W. Smith - "Smitty" is 17 years into a career which began as Amy Grant's keyboard player, who's already been awarded 23 #1 songs, 1 platinum record, 6 gold records, two Grammy awards and 22 Doves awards. This year also saw Michael walk away with the prestigious Dove Award for Artist of the Year. His successes in the pop music field (which began with his top five hit "Place in This World" and the number one hit, "I Will Be Here For You") continues with his recent Jim Brickman duet "Love of My Life." Add to all that his recent coup as the first Christian artist to ever receive the ASCAP "Golden Note" Award for lifetime achievement in songwriting, (which puts him in the same company as Stevie Wonder and Elton John) and you have to wonder if it's all downhill from there.

Whether he's serving people through his church, through the ministry of Rocketown, through his music heard on radios and in concerts or through the halls of his own home with his five kids and wife of eighteen years, one thing is certain: there is truly a time for everything. And right now with "This Is Your Time", he has given listeners a time to reflect, to celebrate, to remember and to rediscover the freshness of our faith. Even though the project was born through a season of sadness and loss, the hope-laden songs triumph and create what may even be a time to dance. Ask Smitty what's next and he'll probably not be able to answer you. After all, faith is meant to be an adventure, and at this point in his journey, even though he's not sure exactly what's around the next corner, Michael W. Smith is still having the time of his life.
