First introduced to the world when his version of And I Am Telling You (I'm Not going) from Dreamgirls became a sensation on YouTube, Von Smith has garnered a legion of fans and performed on some of the most celebrated stages, including ABC's The View, Bravo's The Kathy Griffin Show, BET's 106th and Park, featured on MTV News, VH1's Best Week Ever, E's The Soup, TV Azteca's La Academia (Mexico), Up Junior (China), and American Idol season 8 as one of the top 17 finalists.
When not rocking out on national stages across the country with fellow idol buddies, or performing in front of symphonies conducted by the likes of the late Marvin Hamlisch, Von can be found in the recording studio, where he just completed his first EP, On To Something, available now on ITunes.
