Antonique Smith – Speechless

If you saw the film ‘Notorious,’ you should recognize Antonique Smith, who played Faith Evans. Outside of her role in the film, Smith also played a lead character in the Broadway musical, Rent.

Now ready to conquer the music business, Antonique releases her debut single “Speechless.” On the track, she floats over a soft whimsical production that left room for her to display the range and tone of her voice. A sweet tickle leaving you “Speechless” as it hits the apex on the chorus. Smith sings “Don’t just what to say/I’m Just breathing.”

A music career for Antonique is not just a quick stop to make some cash. “Ever since I heard Whitney Houston’s voice as a little girl, I wanted to be a singer,” explains Smith.

Through Kickstarter, fans can invest in the album with a donation of their choice and join the creative process. “We are putting the power in the hands of the people. It’s not a label saying, ‘This is what people are going to like,'” stresses Antonique. “It’s the people saying, ‘We are going to get behind this.’ We’re going grassroots!”
