If you haven’t seen Sam Smith’s powerful performance from Saturday Night Live this past weekend, stop what you’re doing. I don’t know much, if anything, about Sam Smith, but everything about his two performances made researching him a top priority. His band was fantastic as their instrumentation was simple, yet elegant. They didn’t overdo it. He has a beautiful voice, an amazing range, his backup singers were phenomenal, his songs were sentimental, and homie seems mad humble. Watch his performances of “Stay With Me” and “Lay Me Down” above and enjoy.
