Who is Kirsten Holly Smith?
Kristen is a Producer, Actress, Singer, Performer & Writer best known for her moving and memorable interpretation of the legendary 1960's British singer Dusty Springfield in "Forever Dusty." After receiving a $6,700 grant from the University of Southern California to workshop and stage the one-woman biographical musical in 2006, Kirsten wowed audiences all the way to NYC, where Forever Dusty had a very successful run at New World Stages. Mike Murray, who is Kirsten's amazingly talented music director and accompanying pianist invited Aliya to see the production. Aliya simply fell in love with her great performance and knew she would be perfect for our then planned interview, "Making it happen with passion!" !
