About The Music Corner

Valinda (Val) began performing at the age of 19 in and around Kansas City and as far as Las Vegas. She played keyboards, congas and fronted various different groups until forming her own group in her twenties. She then freelanced with some jazz greats in Kansas City like Paul Smith, Joe Cartwright, and Gary Barr.

Her background also includes promoting and booking such acts as The Judds, 38 Special, Cheap Trick and others. She helped inspire and coach her son Von Smith through the stages of American Idol Season 8. He left as number 14. Von continues to perform around the country and at various showcases for his mom when he is not in L.A. or New York.
