Our friend Henri Smith just posted a recording of his band performing Just a Closer Walk with Thee at the First Parish Church in Manchester on May 6 that raised money for The Grace Center in Gloucester. This is one more example of Henri’s versatile voice and his almost magical ability to inspire a crowd. Listen the the song here. You can see Henri and his band open for the Aaron Neville Quintet featuring Charles Neville on June 28 at North Shore Music Theatre (get tickets here).
