Antonique Smith, who played Faith Evans in the movie "Notorious" is making her very first Album!! Come support!!

Hey, it's Antonique! I've been really blessed over the years to have been able to break into the broadway and film world and I'm so thrilled to be wrapping  up my very first album! I've been dreaming of this since I heard Whitney Houston's voice as a little girl. I've spent almost 2 years co-writing with some of the biggest and most gifted song writers and producers in the industry such as Danja Handz (Justin Timberlake), Dr. Dre (Eminem), Toby Gad (Beyonce), Jukebox (Willow Smith), Redd Stylez (Usher)  just to name a few! The songs are really incredible. I've put my heart into everyone of them. I'd like to say my sound is more "pop/soul" with a slight R&B/Hip Hop feel to it!

A major record label would be spending well over a million bucks to produce, mass market and promote an album like this one. Since it would be their money, they would want to control the look, sound and direction of my music. That's why I'm reaching out to you guys to get backing so together we can complete the album and promote it in a MAJOR way. I mean BIG!! Huge! Ok, you get it! Lol But, we get to do it our way....

You can hear my music here & YouTube. I recently shot this teaser music video for the new Speechless Album in Los Angeles

Kickstarter is the best...they're really awesome for giving us a platform to gather the resources to create and release our art in its purest form and putting the power in the hands of the people.

With the funds raised here I will be able to purchase, mix and master all my records. I'll also be able to pay for the marketing, promotion and video for my first single "Speechless."  

Here's the first single off my new album, it's called "Speechless" !! If we reach our goal I'lll be able to put this out to the world!!

Where will the money go?

If i'm blessed enough to surpass my goal of 50,000 the additional funds will go towards making more songs, more live shows, music videos and visuals merchandise and packaging!! The more money we raise the more content I can get to you guys!!!

Funding Goals

  • If we reach $100,000, I will be able to put 14 songs, plus 3 bonus tracks on the Speechless album as well as release 2 singles.
  • If we reach $350,000 I will be able release a free Christmas EP along with my album as well as put on a U.S. tour for 2013

Once we've raise the money I will immediately start the mixing and mastering process for my first single "Speechless" from the Speechless Album. As well as completing music video and hire necessary staff to release the "Speechless" single to the world. The release of the Speechless Album will soon follow. I will also start booking venues with my manager, starting from the west coast and eventually moving to the East Coast...
