Sidewalk Prophets is an American contemporary Christian music band from Nashville, Tennessee formed by their lead singer Dave Frey in 2003 while attending Anderson University, Indiana. The song “The Words I Would Say” from their album “These Simple Truths” was featured on WOW Hits 2010 and WOW Hits 2011. The group won the GMA Dove Award for New Artist of the Year in 2010.
In September 2019, Sidewalk Prophets released their song “Smile” and in an interview, frontman Dave Frey said “Our song, ‘Smile,’ is an anthem of joy. And, a reminder to hold on to God’s promises through thick and thin.”
During the first month of the COVID-19 pandemic last year, the band released a campaign to spread joy thru Twitter, asking people to share a video as they dance or do their own joyful things while the song “Smile” plays in the background, which was a success because people from all over the world joined with the purpose of spreading happiness and joy.
“Smile” and many other Sidewalk Prophets songs are played daily here on SAVED Radio.
“There’s always a reason to always choose joy
There’s something deeper that the world can’t destroy
Smile, when you think you can’t
Smile, there’s a bigger plan
And you’ve got a reason to smile”
