A CLASSICAL VERSION . . . NOT JOSH GROBAN
Dr. Smith taught vocal music to thousands of children across America and on Okinawa, Japan. She performed in numerous choirs, operas, churches and became guest soloist for military churches on Okinawa. It is not unusual for her to be stopped on the streets of Detroit and hear, "Hi Dr. Smith! Remember me? You taught me at (name of school)!" or to be notified by a Facebook person who remembers her as the vocal teacher. Some of her students have made successful musical careers in New York.
