(DALLAS, Texas) — Christian music performing artist Michael W. Smith visited the Buckner Center for Humanitarian Aid on Wednesday, Dec. 3 to take a tour of the Shoes for Orphans Souls warehouse and to surprise volunteers with an unplugged performance. The visit was hosted by GodTube and Buckner International.
"This is a great place," he told volunteers after his tour. “This kind of stuff changes the world. It’s always been my hope, my dream and my prayer that if the church at large would do what you’re doing, then the world would change.”
Smith played three songs, including hit song “Friends are Friends Forever” and a special piano piece he had written for his granddaughter.
Smith has won three Grammys and dozens of Dove awards for his work in Christian music. Smith was in Dallas for his Christmas tour where he performed at the Meyerson Symphony Center Dec. 2 and 3.
