Soul - Jazz singer
Born: 21.06.1932, in Mansfield, Louisiana, U.S.A.
Died: 23.11.2001, in Los Angeles, California, U.S.A.
His debut release was a cover of the [a=Little Richard] hit "Tutti Frutti" in December 1955. The song was not a hit, but convinced [l33261] to sign Smith to a solo contract, resulting in three more releases, but still no hits.
In 1961, Smith was recruited by [a=Count Basie] to be his vocalist, a position he held until 1965.
He also continued to record with different labels, but a hit remained elusive.
By 1968, Smith's then label, Columbia Records, was ready to release him from his recording contract, when he entered the charts for the first time with "Son of Hickory Holler's Tramp", which reached No.2 in the UK Singles Chart and also broke the Top 40 in the United States.
In 1976 [a=Kenny Rogers] revived the hit as a country song.
Smith changed the first part of his name to O.C. and recorded the [a=Bobby Russell] written song "Little Green Apples," which went to No.2 on the Billboard Hot 100 and won Russell the 1969 Grammy Award for Song of the Year. It received a gold record from the R.I.A.A. for sales of one million records.
He continued to record, reaching the R&B, Adult Contemporary and pop charts in his home country with the likes of "Daddy's Little Man", "Friend, Lover, Woman, Wife", "Me and You" and "Love To Burn". He also returned to the UK Singles Chart in 1977 with "Together", reaching a Top 30 position.
After CBS, Smith united with [a=Charles Wallert], who wrote and produced the title track as well as the album for "Dreams Come True" that returned Smith to the national charts. The Whatcha Gonna Do album, resulted in three nationally charted singles for a total of 40 weeks. This album contained "Brenda", "You're My First, My Last My Everything" and "Spark Of Love". Additional hits "The Best Out Of Me" and "After All Is Said And Done" established Smith as a Beach Music star. Nominated for six awards at the third Beach Music Awards, Smith captured five.
Smith became pastor and founder of The City Of Angels Church in Los Angeles, California where he practiced for 16 years. One of his last recordings, "Save The Last Dance For Me" reached the number one position on the Rhythm n' Beach Top 40 chart.
Shortly after his death, Governor Jim Hodges proclaimed June 21, 2002, 'O.C. Smith Day' in the State of South Carolina. Smith was posthumously elected to the Carolina Beach Music Hall of Fame in November 2002.
