is originally from Pell City, Alabama and has been a Southern Gospel Music
lover all of her life. Her Dad, Buck Smith, has been the manager and first
tenor of the well-known Royal Masters Quartet of the Birmingham area since
Anita was a little girl in elementary school. She has fond memories of
special weekends when she was allowed to go along.....usually being one of
the first ones on the bus, asking where they were going.
She spent many of
those adolescent weekends on her Dadís groupís bus, where she saw
first-hand in the concerts what the Lord could do in the lives of those who
turned to Him. She sang and traveled in youth choirs as a teen and later, as
a young adult, was heavily involved in the bus ministry of a large church.
She has also been a Sunday School teacher and led a church Women's Group
Ministry. People are struck by her sincerity and by her conviction as she sings
beautifully of her Savior.
It is fitting
that Anita now invests her life in this ministry, as she gave her heart to
the Lord at a Gospel Concert in her pre-teen years. Now, she rejoices
that God has given her the opportunity to use her lovely voice to spread
the message of the Gospel to those in need.
