Todd Smith (given birth to James Todd Smith) is really a singer and songwriter most widely known being a founding person in the CCM music group Selah. Delivered in Michigan, Smith spent his early youth in Detroit. His parents transferred the family members to Central Africa for missionary function when he was five yrs . old, not time for the Expresses until he was in his teenagers. After participating in Belmont School in Nashville, Smith produced the Dove Award-winning Selah in 1997 along with his sister Nicol Smith (afterwards Nicol Sponberg) and friend Allan Hall. The band’s initial album, End up being Still My Spirit, made an appearance in 1999. Their improvements of traditional hymns and well-known religious songs occasionally uncovered African choral affects. The trio released three even more albums before Nicol still left in 2004 to provide even more focus on her solo profession. The same season, Todd released his single debut, a Christian rock and roll album entitled Alive, on Curb Information. Amy Perry ultimately had taken over as a long-term third person in Selah. Furthermore to regular performances in the Christian graphs, the band strike the very best 50 from the Billboard 200 with 2006’s Bless the Broken Street: The Duets Recording. It was accompanied by three even more studio albums on the following decade, each striking the very best Five from the Christian albums graph. Smith’s second single LP wouldn’t show up until 2016. Led with the anthemic one “Contacting All Fathers,” There is a Light was shipped by Curb that August.
