Rebecca Linda and Frank:
I listened to the pre-mastered Hope
CD yesterday and what a great album. It’s your best to date
Your vocals are wonderful, you’ve got
great material, the instrumentation is wonderful and the backup
vocals are right on the mark. The production value is really
high. I don’t know what there is to re-master. Perhaps
one harmonica riff that’s a little loud, but I think this is
basically a finished product. Very nice work.
We’ll be playing “Slow Dance More” on
the show when the mastered version is available.

Hi There" just

you to know how much we love all your songs so went to their web site.
You are so lovely. Hope you come to Bridgeport Ct and do a concert one
From: Charles R. Crews, PhD
The songs you have written and sung are fantastic! To hear part of
my life set to music is an amazing feeling. Many times I have thought about
our life, and to hear that other people have seen the struggles we lived
has caused me to soften up, kind of cathartic. Thank you for sharing
these with me.

Hi Rebecca & Robert:
I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the
autographed CD, We Will Remember; it was a pleasure meeting
you both, and I enjoyed Rebecca's performance. I listened to the CD
cut, and I'll bet it brings the audience to their feet when you
perform it, around the country; the OSD vets showed how much they
enjoyed, We Will Remember! Best wishes in your efforts.

Dear Ms. Smith,
I love your song
"Texas and Tennessee" and today was reviewing some of Joe
Baker's compilations and rediscovered "Purrfect Love."
What a terrific song! I will not only be playing it on my show,
but am emailing it to a dj friend of mine back east who might be
losing his cat, "Miss Little", who has been with him for
many, many years. He and I are both animal lovers, and I know
your song will bring him a great deal of comfort. Bless you for
all the music you make, and know that this particular song will have a
very special meaning for my friend.

Hello to the Smith Family!
Dr. Smith, when Brandon ran into you last week at school he
brought me a business card. I haven't been online and checked
your sight recently and Steve and I were blown away by how fast
things are happening for you both! Wow! What a blessing
that is for you both, what a gift this truly is! I loved
looking at your photos and was so happy to see the billboard.
Unbelieveable! This is so well deserved! I will keep
checking your site from time to time to try to stay updated on how
things are going for you. Thanks for sharing!

Greetings from New Mexico
How are things going with your concerts, tours, recordings, etc?
Been thinking about you a lot lately and enjoying your
"Timeless" album. We don't normally listen to CDs since we
have the radio station. But it's so nice to just put your CD on once
in awhile and listen to your lovely voice and be blessed time and
My dad was born in Clovis, NM and raised partially in Arkansas and
partially in Houston, TX. My mom was born in Oklahoma and spent some
of her growing up years in Texarkana before her family moved to
California. My nephew and his family live in Austin and we got to go
down and see them in 2006. So Texas has a special place in my heart.
I love your song Texas and Tennessee. Have never been to Tennessee,
but hope to be able to go someday.
Everlasting Love is my all time favorite. I can see why it was a
hit. And I get tears in my eyes as I listen to you and Dottie. It is
so hard to believe she is with the Lord now singing with the angels.
So glad you had that opportunity to sing with her... what a
Be encouraged today - you are loved with an Everlasting Love!
From Joe Liles Re: "We Will Remember"
written by Robert Frank Smith, recorded by Rebecca Linda Smith
Rebecca . . . thanks for sharing this
beautiful, powerful song with me. Its a fine creation and the
singing is great, too. I hope it gets lots of play and
Rebecca Linda (Garcia) Smith was born into a
military family and spent most of her young life growing up between
the United States and Germany. She began singing when she was four
years old. The start of her singing career was performing for
different school functions and in churches throughout Europe during
her teenage years. As Rebecca Linda grew in her faith, she also
cultivated her musical talents. Now, Rebecca is concentrating on
having her music be a testament to 'renew' as many people as possible.
And this exact instance occurred last time Rebecca and her husband
were promoting her new CD in Nashville. The story goes that DJ Neal
Cannon of WJBD 1350 AM received a call from a listener saying that the
song "Jesus, Lord Of My Life" saved the listener's life.
After hearing the words the fan immediately gave his life to Jesus!
Rebecca's music has been burning up the airways and this summer she
begins a 15-day, nine-state broadcast media tour throughout the
Southeast. Rebecca Linda's life took many twists and turns, from
serving in the U.S. Army, to obtaining her master's degree in
education, to developing gestational diabetes, to the death of her
ever-loving father. These events seemed to point her toward God's
purpose for her future — pursuing a music career. She has sung in
churches, at weddings, memorial services, and various social and
community events throughout her life. Yet, this could not quench the
burning desire Rebecca still had to sing for the Lord on a full-time
basis. She has since begun applying all her efforts into her ministry
as Rebecca Linda Smith-Renewed. Rebecca's desire to stray from her
music and enlist in the Army comes from a very familial desire.
"My entire family has served the military and our country in some
form or fashion. My father set the example for all of us. My oldest
brother is a retired Army officer, as is my husband. My younger
brother and sister also served in the military. We believe in serving
our country and in giving back because we have been given so
much," said Rebecca. Rebecca Linda's first CD, All For You, sums
up how she felt about serving the Lord. Rebecca said "The songs I
chose are those that have touched my life and renewed my desire to
sing for Him as a ministry." Her project, Jesus' Grace,
has a common theme in most of the songs — we are all sinners
saved by Jesus' grace — and a powerful and anointed message of
eternal hope as well, she said. Rebecca has released her new CD, which
she prays will touch lives and serve to restore those who need to be
renewed in their spiritual walk and commitment to the Lord. Jesus'
Grace was released through her new label, Renewed Records. Rebecca
Linda and her husband Dr. Robert Frank wrote or co-wrote 10 of the 14
songs on the album. "Many fans say she is well rounded with her
array of music styles, which include Christian Country, Southern Gospel, and Inspirational Country music genres
after crossing over from Adult Contemporary Christian music" said her husband Robert Frank. He ended by noting,
"We are looking forward to continuing travels throughout the
country and abroad as we share God's message through personal
testimony, music, and song."
"Jesus Grace" is distributed by Renewed
Records and affiliates worldwide.
