Brenda Smith worked with legendary record producer Billy Sherrill at age 13 and also an actress and model in Hollywood. While on Epic Records, she released, There Is A Place by Sharon Rucker and R.S. Kinky Friedman, string arrangement by Glenn Spreen. A very sweet country love song with a pop flair. Its about love that never dies, like Romeo and Juliet. Brenda sang this with a polished maturity beyond her years. Billy recognized Brendas writing talent and produced her first original recording called Midnight Flight To Frisco, strings arranged by Bergen White. Brenda co-wrote this with Geno Havens, a casting director from Hollywood. The string arrangement adds to the feeling of taking off in an airplane.

She'll get you standing, clapping and singing along too. Her optimistic outlook is inspiring. She has big dreams and a big heart. She is aways looking at the brighter side. That's why she is 'Sunshine'.

Brenda says, "I always look for the good in everyone and everything. I have faith that all things are possible.
