Singer. Songwriter. DJ and selector. Educator. All of these terms apply directly and perfectly to Terri “Diviniti” Smith. Born and raised in Detroit, Diviniti is a part of a scene that has been shaped by the city’s musical rebirth through electronic innovation in the 80s. Her uplifting songs and angelic vocal style, infused with eloquent wordplay, are influenced by a diverse range of classic rock, jazz, R&B, and soul music.
In 2003, Diviniti teamed up with Pirahnahead, leading to a string of dance floor hits that were released on several renowned labels such as Mahogani Music and Reel People Music. She has also collaborated with some of the biggest names in electronic music including Louie Vega, Charles Webster, and Andy Compton. Her music has been featured on multiple compilations by renowned selectors and even earned her a Grammy nomination for her contribution to Louie Vega’s album “Starring…XXVIII”.
Diviniti is far more than a studio artist. Her live performances are just as captivating. She has performed at the Movement Festival in Detroit, the Winter Music Conference in Miami, and The Tokyo Crossover Jazz Festival as well as at clubs in Detroit, Chicago, and New York. Her international appeal has been reinforced by her live performances as well as record releases.
Diviniti has recently completed her debut album, “In Due Time”, produced by multiple Grammy-nominee Josh Milan. This highly anticipated project will be released on all major streaming platforms on Friday May 26th.
In addition to her music career behind the pen and microphone, Diviniti has most recently been a sought after DJ, selector, and playlist curator. She is also the founder of The Little Bit Project Group, Inc., a non profit organization which aims to spread positivity and inspiration through affirmation cards and Little Bit Radio, a monthly internet-based radio show hosted by Diviniti that features music of all genres and bits of motivation.
Additionally, Diviniti is an educator with more than 25 years of experience in the Detroit Public School Community District and holds a Bachelor of Science and Master’s degree in Elementary Education from Wayne State University.
Whether on stage, in the studio, behind the turntables or in the classroom, Diviniti is a natural born teacher and a motivating force in the world of music and beyond.
