Sam Smith's journey from a small British village to global stardom is a remarkable one. Influenced by iconic female vocalists like Whitney Houston and Chaka Khan, Smith's talent was nurtured by a jazz singer at an early age. After moving to London and working various jobs, they collaborated with artists like Disclosure and Naughty Boy, catapulting them to fame. Their debut album, In The Lonely Hour, garnered numerous awards, and their song Writing's On The Wall for a James Bond film won an Oscar.
In 2019, Sam Smith came out as non-binary, making a significant impact on the Brit Awards' gender-specific categories. Their music continues to resonate with audiences, and their activism has left a lasting mark on both the music industry and society as a whole. Sam Smith's journey is a testament to the power of talent, self-expression, and authenticity.
