Smokie Norful has been in the music business as a songwriter and recording artist for more than two decades. The Grammy Award winning singer is still making music, but he is also using his voice to dish out wisdom about accepting a God-given calling.

Norful recently authored the book “Take the Lid Off”, and serves as the pastor of Victory Life Cathedral in Chicago. In a recent interview on Studio 5 with Efrem Graham, Norful talked about his journey to accepting a call to ministry.
