Liberty announced that the center will launch this fall, with Smith as director. Other notable individuals that will be assisting with the school is "Kevin Jonas, father and original manager of the Jonas Brothers who launched their music careers in 2005, will also play a pivotal role in working with Liberty students to publish records and introduce their talent to the world," according to the school's website.
The website goes on to say that, "Former Christian recording artist and music industry executive Al Denson has been a key player in securing Smith, Jonas, and others in this unique partnership. As Liberty’s commercial music industry liaison, Denson will bring in artists who have the passion to work with budding musicians who were once in their place."
Al Denson has been on the Advisory Council for the school's music program for the last 14 years.
