Around 1981 The Smith Family Singers began their journey as the Biloxi Jubilees. It was the dream of the founder, Minister Smith, to have his own musical group. The first members were Nathaniel Smith, Rose Smith, Theo Cross, Nanny Rogers, Marie Thomas, Adrian Smith and April Smith. We sang all over MS, AL and LA. We evolved into the Smith Family Singers as the older non-family members phased out to pursue other avenues.
As the children grew older they came into their own as official members of the group. The first crew was Adrian (Bass), April (Piano), Nathaniel II (Drums), Rose and Nathaniel Smith (Lead Guitar). When Adrian and April went to college, the second crew stepped up to fill the void. The second crew consisted of Nathaniel II, Clemencia, Kevin, Karin and Raymond Smith. Eventually the two crews blended together. Today the members of the group consist of our matriarch, Rose Smith, the children, their spouses and the grandchildren.
We are continuing the legacy of our founder the Late Chief Apostle, Dr. Nathaniel Smith. We ask for your continued prayers and support as we continue to lift up the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in song.
