WORKING WITH THE BEST!
Samantha-antoinette Smith started singing professionally over
35 years ago and has enjoyed singing Gospel, Blues, Jazz, Motown, Funk, & Pop music throughout her colourful career.
I joined The London Community Gospel Choir and stayed and perfected my natural craft with them for 21 years. "I have so many fond, unforgettable memories and worked with amazing top celebrities and artist, providing back up singing sometimes as part of a trio or as a back up choir including being amongst LCGC's top lead singer."
Also during this time with LCGC, Samantha-antoinette recalls being commended by The Late "Luther Vandross", where LCGC was backing him at The Royal Albert Hall for a live album recording called "An Evening Of Songs", during the rehearsal period, when the singers were asked to sing individually, on hearing Samantha's voice, "Vandross" said to one of his backing singers - “SHE HAS A GREAT TONE"!
A fantastic endorsement and fond memory Samantha-antoinette will NEVER forget!
