Breaking News: Kim Walker-Smith records a song without laughing
Kim Walker-Smith, the powerhouse worship leader for Bethel Music and Jesus Culture, has recorded dozens if not hundreds of songs in her illustrious career.
Her raspy voice and passion come through as she belts out every note. Worshipers around the world are moved by her beautiful and powerful voice.
One of the things she is also known for is her spontaneous worship that contains a quiet chuckle or a giggle. In her classic song, “I need you more,” she has an audible smile that many have called an informal guffaw.
Walker-Smith shocked everyone with her new worship single, “Holy Laugh.” Critics listened intently expecting to hear her patented quick snort. But, worshippers were surprised to find that nowhere in “Holy Laugh” was there even a quick chortle or a suppressed giggle.
No snickers or even a hint of cackle.
When asked about the irony of her album title, Walker-Smith snorted with her contagious smile she said, “I want to be known for more than just a howl!”
Dissolving into laughter she managed to squeeze out the words, “I want my worship songs to be serious and contemplative.” Soon she became hoarse with laughter but croaked, “This song is my legacy, I want to be remembered as the serious one.”
As this reporter was preparing to leave, Walker-Smith was rolling in the floor with gasping for air. We found it all very funny…until the ambulance came.
Then we felt guilty for not realising that she was asphyxiating.
