Taking  on a Whitney Houston song is no easy task! You better be able to deliver or else you will be criticized!

British newcomer Sam Smith put his signature sound on this Whitney classic and nailed his performance!   Watch now and get ready to melt!

Smith has this to say to People magazine:

“I love legends like Whitney Houston.  I love female voices and female divas. I find Amy Winehouse so iconic. Everything about her, just the way she looks.”

He added how life has changed for him since landed on Disclosure’s song “Latch.”

“Elton John actually called me the other day. That was surreal,” the 22-year-old singer says.

Smith’s  debut album In the Lonely Hour also comes with the stress of a busy schedule that’s  made worse by his OCD tendencies.

“I have really tough days,” Smith explains. “But I’m trying to get over it and really enjoy myself and live in the moment a bit more and make memories that can last forever.”

I’m looking forward to seeing Sam Smith one day! As of now there’s no Detroit date for his U.S. tour, which is set to kick off this fall.
