Sam Smith hopped onto my radar earlier this year when he was the musical guest for Louis C.K.’s second stint as host of SNL, especially with his live version of ‘Stay With Me’. Now he’s crossing over into the cover song game, and if this version of ‘How Will I Know’ is any indication, he’ll be fantastic.
Marvin Gaye. Whitney Houston. Queen Latifah. Entertainment stars singing the national anthem at big time sporting events is a tradition that is as old as time itself. While performing the anthem at the Superbowl or World Series is a huge honor, we feel that the ultimate pat on the back would be singing it for your home country during the Olympics. The Olympic’s may be in Russia this year, but there’s no such thing as being over prepared. When they come back to America, remember this day. For this is the day the Average Nobodies stole the hearts of Americans everywhere. Hit the music!
