"The World Should Know"

“Lorie Smith's ministry has been such an inspirational tool of encouragement and empowerment. Not only does she have an awesome unforgettable melodic voice, it's laced with wisdom attained by the reality of life.

Love ya...” - Minister Walt Whitman - Founder/Director of The Soul Children of Chicago

"End-Time Voice To The Nations"

“Lorie S. Smith is an end time voice to the nation and the nations! I have had the pleasure of ministering along side this woman of God on many occasions. Love for her craft, her ministry to the people and her love for Jesus Christ, has propelled her into a place of ministry like no other. She has ministered to a local congregation that I pastured there in Chicago and they have with one voice shared their heart felt love and appreciation for her life and service in the Gospel/Christian music industry. I anticipate the release of her new CD project will be nothing less than another out pouring of her life through spirit filled intimate worship with the Father.” - Pastor Elliott K. Sommerville - For His Glory Ministries, Atlanta, GA

“Evangelist Lorie Smith has submitted herself under my leadership for the past seventeen yearts. I have the opportunity to examine first hand the gifts, and talents developed over the years. I can honestly say, as my spiritual daughter, her willingness to obey and trust God to me is without a doubt exceptional. Her diligence in ministry in-house (teaching, ministering in song as Praise and Worship Leader and Youth Ministry Director) as well as outreach, (traveling nation-wide to different regions, denominations and backgrounds) have also given me this opportunity to witness how much God has invested in her for His Glory. Evangelist Smith has been given my endorsement to minister because she has proven her loyalty, diligence, and submission to God and myself as her covering.” - Dr. Lauretta Pickett - Founder/Pastor, God Is Real International Ministries


Cover Me, CD Single (2005)-Produced by Vincent Wiley of GTG Productions. All songs written by Lorie Smith.



Cover Me - This project features everything from up tempo songs such as “In Your Presence,” to the slower but extremely powerful title track “Cover Me,” as well as songs of worship and adoration.

Lorie’s personality, inviting warmth and genuine love for God transcends her music. Her songs touch everyone. Her lyrics reflect the real needs, desires, and struggles that every person experiences. She let’s her listeners know that God still loves us and is there by our side through all of life’s tests and trials. Lorie crystallizes her purpose in music and in life with this forthcoming album. It is a bright and beautiful reflection of the artist, created with a very clear end in mind; to touch hearts and let every generation know the love of God.”

Q&A - What would you say to artists launching into the gospel music industry in regards to there relation ship with God?
