ShaWanda Smith is a native of Dayton, Ohio. Growing up as the daughter of a Pastor, ShaWanda was introduced to a love of music that soon became her reality. In Christ, she began singing at an early age of 5 and had the opportunity to lead her first song with the church’s adult choir. This opportunity allowed for everyone to see the calling that God had on ShaWanda’s life.
While Shawanda is no stranger to writing and performing her own music, she has shared the stage in ministry with Jonathan McReynolds, John P. Kee, and Karen Clark Sheard to name a few. She serves as a front Line singer and Praise & Worship team member for the Churches of God in Christ (COGIC), International Music Department (IMD). Recently, Shawanda, her husband Will and 5 children were blessed to relocate from her hometown to St. Louis, Missouri where she currently serves as the Worship Pastor at The St. Louis Dream Center/Joyce Meyer Ministries.
Shawanda recently signed with an up and coming entertainment house, C-Note Entertainment (St. Louis, MO) and has released two singles from her recent works, “My Turn” and “Emmanuel.”
It is Shawanda’s sincere desire to touch every heart, inspire the mind, and stir the soul of every listener. She is a living testimony of the faithfulness of God and will not relent until the whole world hears. She is committed to keeping God at the forefront of the ministry and not comprise the “Good News” of His word through song.
Shawanda also has two albums available on digital music media outlets, “Reflections of His Love” and “You”.
