Todd returns with his latest solo album, There's A Light - available August 26, 2016. The lead single and title track is the album’s anthem, delicately weaving its message of conquering darkness throughout the entire record.
“Calling All Fathers,” the powerful new single from Todd Smith, arrives just in time for Father’s Day. Penned by Smith and award-winning producer/songwriter Ed Cash, “Calling All Fathers” was largely inspired by his own journey as a husband and dad to five daughters. Already resonating with fans around the world with more than 120,000 views of the song's lyric video in its first week, the deeply personal anthem encourages fathers to embrace their God-given roles with accountability and confidence.
“I hope ‘Calling All Fathers’ will serve as a challenge to all of us dads to be the men we are called to be,” say Smith. "I don’t always know what to do or feel like I measure up as a father, but God gave me this responsibility, and He will equip me. We need to be fathers willing to put ourselves between our families and the dangers of this world. As men, we can be driven by the fear to succeed, distracted from being engaged with our kids and truly leading and teaching them right from wrong.”
“Ed and I began writing this song last summer, amidst several moral crises our society was facing,” he adds. "The state of our country made me wonder, 'where are the men— the leaders?' If we men will stand up, committed to believing in the Word of God, confessing our sin, humbling ourselves and walking in authority with Jesus, what a witness that will be in our community—and world—and what an impact it will have on our families.”
