Kim Walker-Smith (born December 19, 1981 as Kimberlee Dawn Walker) is an American singer, songwriter, worship leader, and recording artist. Kim Walker was born in Albany, Oregon, and “raised in a small farm town called Klamath Falls, Oregon

She produced her first solo album, Here Is My Song, which was released in February 2008 through the Jesus Culture record label. Walker-Smith is best known as the worship leader for the Jesus Culture Band and Jesus Culture events, and as a worship pastor for Bethel Church in Redding.

In 2005, Walker’s “powerful voice won her $25,000 cash in an American Idol type of competition called So You Want to Be a Star, which aired on Chico television station KRVU. [She] is considered by many to be a forerunner in a new kind of worship referred to as prophetic worship.” Walker has cited Misty Edwards of the International House of Prayer and Suzy Yaraei of Morning Star Ministries, both prominent worship leaders in the evangelical community, as her greatest musical influences.

In 2009, Walker married Skyler William Smith (born March 25, 1981), another worship leader who also does graphic design and photography. She now releases music under the name Kim Walker-Smith instead of her maiden name. In addition to her career of solo albums, she is also a member of the band Jesus Culture, which began as a youth worship band at Bethel, but now hosts multiple worship conferences around the country and produces a live record each year, in addition to frequently leading worship at Bethel. In 2010, Walker-Smith stated that she was “at Bethel once to twice a month right now. We travel about three to four times a month. About 40 percent of that is Jesus Culture.” She has also expressed a desire for her music to expand into the secular community, expressing a passion for social justice and “to see the arts and creativity restored and a new standard set”. “I’ve always looked at music as a vehicle to get me to people”
