Sam Smith. Twenty-two-year-old, British singer-songwriter Sam Smith got his big break in the fall of 2012, when he was featured on Disclosure's dance hit "Latch." He most recently has made ripples in the United States with the enormous radio success of his single "Stay With Me" and robust sales of his debut album "In The Lonely Hour." An out gay man, he breaks boundaries and defies expectations with the heavy R&B influences in his songwriting and his rich and soulful sound, while being a champion for the LGBTQ community.
