Al Smith Often called the dean of Gospel music, Dr. Al Smith, was a composer, Gospel soloist, song leader, lecturer, and an authority on church music, recording artist and music publisher.
Wherever you may have found Dr. Smith, you were sure to find a man who enjoyed the work God called him to do The fascinating life of Dr. Smith began on November 8, in a small Holland Dutch community in northern New Jersey where the news of the day reported that "Mr.
Barney Smith" had become the proud parents of a baby boy who they named Alfred Barney Smith.
Though his mother had never received any extensive musical training she did love to sing. The first song she taught young Alfred was "Jesus loves me this I know, for the Bible tells me so", soon followed by "Jesus Bids Us Shine", and of course "America" and "Onward Christian Soldiers" for which he was given a little flag to wave as he marched around the room.
These became his favorites. Feeling that music would be one of his most important ingredients in the home, a Symphonic Model phonograph manufactured by Thomas Alva Edison was purchased. With the phonograph came twenty-five records chosen by the company. At the time, little did the young parents realize how much their included records would affect the future of thier young son.
Young Mother Smith had always loved the violin and in the set were two records by a talented violinist named Albert Spaulding, a family member of the famous Spaulding family who manufactured athletic equipment.
He played some of the beautiful compositions written by the world-renowned violinist, Fritz Kreisler, such songs as "The Old Refrain", "Liebesfreud", "Caprice Viennois", etc.
The young father and mother were thrilled with the recordings and four-year-old Alfred in the months and years ahead would learn to love them too. We thought these early and interesting details deserved more than just a casual mention.
It was these early decisions by his young parents that helped build the foundation and set the direction Alfred would go in the future. When Alfred was eight and a half years of age his mother began to see that her son was developing an interest in the violin.
During this time he rediscovered the old Edison records of Albert Spaulding and began to play them often. Observing this, she decided that it was time to start her son on the violin.
Alfred made wonderful progress, in fact, when he reached the age of eleven his teacher advised his mother that he had taught his pupil all that he could and thought it was time for a new instructor.
Under the teaching of Auer and Meakle, young Alfred made great progress, soon he was performing in concerts in various parts of the east including solos with various symphony orchestras.
At fourteen he was invited to a tent meeting in Hawthorne, New Jersey, where he accepted Christ as Savior. He was thrilled upon hearing the one hundred and fifty people in the tent singing "Saved, Saved, Saved" and "One Day.
Inhe began playing on radio broadcasts.The first charity school outside London, in connection with a dissenting congregation, was instituted by Clarke about , giving free education in reading, writing, and arithmetic to thirty boys and ten girls (see Dissenting academies).
