Kim Walker-Smith            

Christian Singer-Songwriter & Worship Leader

Kim Walker-Smith is a contemporary Christian music singer-songwriter and worship leader.

Her debut solo studio album, Here Is My Song, was released through the Jesus Culture record label in February of 2008. Walker-Smith is best known as the worship leader for the Jesus Culture Band and Jesus Culture events, and a worship pastor for Bethel Church in Redding.

Walker has cited Misty Edwards of the International House of Prayer and Suzy Yaraei of Morning Star Ministries, both prominent worship leaders in the evangelical community, as her greatest musical influences.

In her early adulthood, Walker moved to Redding, California to attend a Christian college, but was struggling with her grades and wasn't happy attending university. One night while driving around she cried out to the Lord and came across a 24-hour prayer house that had been recently set up by Bethel Church. Venturing inside, Walker was captivated and attended their church service the following Sunday.

After a year she left university to attend the Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry (BSSM). She graduated from the BSSM after completing their two-year program, and after two more years was hired by the church as a worship pastor.

In 2005, Walker's powerful voice won her $25,000 cash in an "American Idol" type of competition called "So You Want to Be a Star," which aired on Chico television station KRVU.

In 2017, Walker-Smith released her third solo album, On My Side, which hit #1 on the U.S. Christian Albums chart.

Although they spend a lot of time on the road, Walker-Smith and her husband, Skyler Smith, make their home in Redding, California, along with their children.
