Sam Smith At The iTunes Festival 2014: The Best Moments
10 September 2014, 16:47
Sam Smith graced the London Roundhouse stage last night (9th September) at this year's iTunes festival and did not disappoint. The 'Money On My Mind' singer serenaded his way through tracks from 'In The Lonely Hour' as well as a few other surprises! You missed it?! Well don't worry, Capital were there to make sure you wouldn't miss out on the BEST moments of the night!
Sam stopped the entire crowd in their tracks when he effortlessly belted out a live rendition of 'Lay Me Down' from his debut album. We are pretty sure there wasn't a couple in the audience who weren't styling out a 'sway-hug' combo.
When he covered the Arctic Monkeys' 'Do I Wanna Know?
Not content with being an incredible soul singer, Sam figured he may as well cover Arctic Monkeys' rock anthem 'Do I Wanna Know?'. Arctic Monkeys' frontman Alex Turner may want to keep his eye on the 22 year old incase the band decide they need a new singer!
The crowd became his own personal choir!
Nothing must beat the feeling of hearing 1,700 people singing your own songs back to you. That is exactly what happened when Sam got around to singing crowd favourite 'Stay With Me'.
Those falsetto notes though…
It is safe to say that Sam's vocal range is one of the best in the business. He performed the title track from his Nirvana E.P and it was breathtaking. Mariah Carey eat your heart out.
Throw in a world famous rapper for good measure!
Sam may feature on tracks for Disclosure and Naughty Boy but it was his turn to invite someone to feature on one of his songs and he chose wisely. A$AP Rocky made a surprise cameo during 'I'm Not The Only One'.
