Press Release

Renowned worship leader Kim Walker-Smith releases an anthem for mothers everywhere titled, "Mama." The song will be on the forthcoming full album, “Trample,” releasing on June 7. Just in time for Mother's Day weekend, listen to the powerful song here. 

"I homeschool my kids and most of the work I do is within churches, so I’m not attending school board or PTA meetings, but I’m not oblivious to the war that has been declared on our children," Walker-Smith explained. "As a mother of three young children, I cannot let my guard down for one second. This stirs a righteous anger in me. I want to use my talents to help in this battle. While praying and talking to God about it, I felt God drop this song in my heart. The words and melody just came to me. I got with some other songwriting parents who helped me finish this song."

Co-written by Walker-Smith, Jessie Early, Hank Bentley, and Mia Fields, the singer said she hopes this song becomes a war cry and fight song for mamas everywhere. 

She added, "I hope it encourages mamas everywhere, emboldens them, and fuels their fire in fighting for their children and to be bold in parenting."

With more than 20 years of worship leadership, Walker-Smith is known for her spirit-led worship anthems. Earlier this year, she released her first new song ("Boxes") in more than three years to much acclaim as part of her new June release, which features 12 new songs. She will be touring internationally this summer with a nearly sold-out South Africa tour followed by a headlining tour in the U.S. this fall. 



Walker-Smith is celebrated for her exceptional vocals and spirit-led worship anthems. She emerged as a prominent worship leader for the Jesus Culture movement in the 2010s. With massive hits like "How He Loves," "Spirit Break Out," "Protector" and “Throne Room,” Walker-Smith has amassed over 400 million streams and a combined social following of almost 2 million. Her influence extends beyond music as she is a sought-after speaker and an influential faith leader. She and her husband, Skyler, reside in Montana and have three children.
