High-energy music time for kids

Adelaide-based children’s entertainer Sean W. Smith pauses to consider a question as he rushes to board a flight to New Zealand.

“What can I say that doesn’t sound weird? Others might describe me as a highly energetic, hyperactive 31-year-old who loves kids, loves God and is a huge fan of kids music,” he said.

It’s just as well he’s full of energy. With five Christian kids’ albums under his belt, the recording artist and full-time itinerant Christian minister has performed for more than 250,000 children in more than 400 schools and 250 churches around the world.

Last year he came to Geraldton.

This weekend he will return to perform at Strathalbyn Christian College and a concert at Sun City Christian Centre.

“I love Geraldton, I just had to come back, ” he said.

Billed as one of Australia’s most in-demand and bestselling children’s performers, Smith has been compared to award-winning Christian children’s performer Colin Buchanan.

“I love helping kids,” he said.

“Lots of children are facing things I didn’t have to face. I want to be a voice to encourage kids and champion them along.

“I want to tell them ‘you’re valuable, you’re special and unique’. I want them to know what God’s put into them, to tell them to have fun, relax and not to worry about anything.

Sean W. Smith will perform at the Kids Alive concert at Sun City Christian Centre’s Drome, Simpson Street, Beresford, at 11am on Saturday.

Entry is $5 per family.
