Sing the very first notes of ‘Friends’ and you quickly hear a stadium filled with people join you. For decades now, the music of Michael W. Smith has had that effect on the Dutch. The Netherlands were among the countries that resoundingly responded to his ‘Worship’ album and subsequent releases. The list of hit songs in the Netherlands grew accordingly. ‘Healing Rain’, ‘Great Is The Lord’ and of course ‘Above All’ became staples through Michael W. Smith.
Smith undoubtedly is part of the upper echelons of Christian music. His particular brand of piano pop sensibilities, his warm and inviting personality and unending creative outpouring have made audience all over the world embrace him. Still, Michael W. Smith enjoys a special kind of connection with the Dutch. It was only natural to continue his celebrations and jubilee in Rotterdam on July 19th. It will be a full concert that will, for a large part, bring the worship of his recent work to the Netherlands.
Especially for this concert, Michael W. Smith will be joined on stage by a large Dutch choir from The Choir Company, conducted by Maarten Wassink. Naturally, favorites from albums like ‘Worship’ and ‘Surrounded’ won’t be left out.
Michael W. Smith ist seit Jahrzehnten weltweit ein fester Begriff der christlichen Musikszene. Der Sänger, Songschreiber und Produzent wurde 1957 in West Virginia, USA, geboren und entdeckte bereits in seiner Jugend die Liebe zur Musik. Er ist verheiratet, Vater von fünf Kindern und wurde mit zahlreichen Preisen ausgezeichnet, u.a. mit drei Grammy Awards.
