Sam Smith x The Apollo? Oh hell yes.
Smith will celebrate the June 17 release of his long-awaited debut, In the Lonely Hour, with a performance at the legendary Apollo Theater in NYC, where he will join the ranks of the R&B royalty who inspired his album.
"My mom would play soul music in the car when taking us to school," recalls Smith, who namechecks Aretha Franklin's "I Say a Little Prayer" as the first song he ever recalls hearing. "When I found out I was going to be playing the Apollo, I was at a loss for words. Everyone I have ever looked up to in music has performed here. I truly can't wait to sing on this stage."
And we can't wait to have him and hear him on this legendary stage.
