NEW MUSIC RELEASE

INSTRUMENTAL ALBUM RELEASE

"A Song for Mother" is dedicated to all mothers, especially Rosie Booth (my mom) & Dolores Smith (Bennie J. Smith's mom). Composed as a song to comfort me when I became sad thinking of my mom, I would close my eyes and push the play button. Listening to the beautiful sound and simple melodies, the song helped me remember all the great times with my mother. I hope sharing "A Song for Mother" can help comfort anyone who are sad when thinking and missing their mother. If you are Blessed to still have your mother, please tell her every day that you Love her. Tomorrow on this earth is not guaranteed my family & friends!

BENNIE J. SMITH RELEASE OF EARTH, WIND, & FIRE COVER / I'LL WRITE A SONG FOR YOU ......RELEASE DATE: JUNE 28, 2022

 

My BFAM Bennie J. Smith finally did it! He performed/recorded one of Earth, Wind & Fire's monster ballads. Since the days of Kentucky State University (Pep Band) and The Calculus II Band, Bennie J. performed lead vocal covers of EWF songs such as: Boogie Wonderland, Shining Star, Can't Hide Love, Love's Holiday, That's The Way Of the World, Magic Mind, Getaway, and In The Stone. I always wondered why he didn't attempt to do vocals on Reasons or I'll Write A Song For You. Bennie J. have a beautiful falsetto voice with the range that can do those beast of a song performed by the amazing Phillip Bailey of EWF. But in the year 2022, Bennie J. Smith finally performed/recorded the song I'll Write A Song For You! My Frat brother & Music collaboration partner did an awesome job on this cover my FB Family & Friends.
