Justin Smith is a dynamic Saxophonist, Mentor, Motivational speaker, and Music director. He believes that music is the vaccination that will heal our hurting world. Justin has performed on numerous stages. In addition to performing for many parties, banquets, festivals, award shows, and galas, Justin has shared the stage with Jasmine Guy, Arrested Development, Kirk Franklin, and Orbert Davis.

This trailblazer has testified in front of the Illinois’ House of Representatives, and the Illinois State Senate. Justin was a key organizer in the Illinois budget stalemate. He used music to help spread the critical message that Illinois needs a transformational budget. His music was featured on Capitalfax.com, and he later appeared on Chicago tonight to further spread the message, and took on a host of advocacy trips to be a voice for the students of Illinois.

From Mentorship, to public speaking, to directing music, and to making music, Justin believes that these things work together for his goal. Justin’s goal is to  foster a movement that brings unity, and spreads a positive message in music and in life, that inspires leadership, empowerment, growth, and changing youth for the betterment of the community.

Justin believes that the future is the responsibility of the present.
