Urban Gospel’s Maurice Smith release new CD, ‘I Still Believe’
(The Pulse of Entertainment) “It’s about my walk with Christ,” Urban Gospel’s Maurice Smith said about his latest single “I Still Believe” produced by Doobie Powell (The Clark Sisters). “I came to the realization I still believe. Everybody’s road is different.”
Maurice said seeing what happens in the music industry can be discouraging.
“I had to step back and really learn the truth about me,” he said. “To believe…”
Smith started in the music industry as a backup vocalist for such industry heavy hitters as Estelle, Sinead O’Connor, Robin Gibbs of the Bee Gee’s, Tears of Joy, Hezekiah Walker, Yolanda Adams, Jonathan Nelson and Dorinda Clark-Cole. He has performed on BET’s “Bobby Jones Gospel” and “106 & Park” and NBC’s “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.’ Maurice is lead vocalist for Trevone Perry & Devine Purpose and Anthony Ponder & Ministry’s Desire.
In explaining his discovery about disbelief he said, “The root of it all is disbelief. People change their sex because of disbelief in how God made them. You overcome disbelief with belief. Even though it’s plain and insight they don’t believe. I do believe there is a point where God has to reveal himself.”
As a soloist he debuted in 2014 with the single “You’re All I Want,” which was followed in 2017 with “You are Great.” His third single, “I Still Believe,” was recently released as the lead single to his 2020 debut EP.
“Trust God will give you what you need,” Maurice emphasized. “Once you know how to believe, you can’t go back.”
