Antonique Smith
The Love Story behind “Love is Everything” 

Antonique Smith is an acclaimed actor and a 2015 Grammy nominated singer and songwriter known for her role as Faith Evans in Notorious and Mimi in Jonathan Larson’s Broadway production of Rent. Born in East Orange, New Jersey to a big family, Antonique reflects how family and friends play an important role in getting over someone.

“First of all, God is love and Love is good… I still do believe in love. I also do believe that in order to experience love, you have to be open. You can’t be closed off. You can’t be afraid. Love takes courage.”
