AN acclaimed American singer, Michael W. Smith, kicked off his South African tour in style with an amazing performance on Monday night. Smith X who has sold more than 15 million albums, achieved 28 No. 1 songs, earned three GRAMMY® Awards, one American Music Award, and more than 40 Dove Awards X began his series of concerts at Christian Revival Church (CRC) in Bloemfontein before moving to Durban where he wowed audiences at the International Convention Centre (ICC).

From there, Smith will also be performing at the Grand West Arena in Cape Town on Thursday and Rhema Church in Johannesburg on Friday (29/05). The tour ends at Motetele Park congregation in Pretoria where he will perform on Saturday night (30/05). As expected, Smith’s fans converged on the CRC in their numbers to find spiritual solace and he didn’t disappoint as he dished out a great performance. The contemporary Christian artist, who said at the start of his show that he had more than 250 songs to choose from for his performance, performed songs such as Sky Spills Over, Worthy Is The Lamb, I See You, Open The Eyes Of My Heart, Miracle, Grace and Healing Rain (Let It Rain). Chapi Qhesi, who was among thousands of fans that attended Smith’s concert, said he enjoyed the show to the fullest.

“This is undoubtedly the best show I have attended. I totally enjoyed worship with Michael. I wish I could fly to Durban with him tomorrow to catch his show again. He was really amazing.”

Michael and his wife, Debbie, live in Middle Tennessee, where they raised their five children
