Grammy Nominated, 4-octave range chanteuse, Alice Smith has a new single. Its an arresting rendition and breathtakingly powerful version of the American standard classic House of the Rising Sun (Aug 31, 2018). She decided to record and release the song after she played it live at her soldout Kennedy Center headlining performance in Washington DC earlier this year. Her Full LP Mystery compiled of all original compositions will be released at the end of 2018, as previewed on NPRs Tiny Desk and the CW hit TV series Black Lightning earlier this year. It will be followed by a headlining theater tour in early 2019 that will include shows at the world famous Apollo Theater in Harlem, NYC and The Lincoln Theatre in Washington, DC.Smiths prior release was a stunningly chilling version of Nina Simones I Put A Spell on You from the Nina Simone all-star tribute album Nina Revisited: A Tribute to Nina Simone RCA (2015), which included songs from Lauryn Hill, Usher, Mary J. Blige and more. She wowed a national television audience in 2017 with her performance of Spell at the BETHer Fights: Breast Cancer televised event. The song was also transformed through the artistic eye of Kahlil Joseph into beautifully captured visual art installation entitled Black Mary for the Tate Modern exhibition Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power in London in 2017.Smiths version of Fool For You popularized by Cee-Lo Green has garnered licenses including Gotham, Being Mary Jane, and Foxs hit series Empires inaugural episode. She once again captivated a national television audience on BETs Black Girls Rock in 2013. Smith also performed Glory for the nationally televised 47th Annual NAACP Image Awards in 2016.
