Catapulted into the spotlight by some canny guest appearances—including Disclosure's “Latch” and Naughty Boy's “La La La”—singer-songwriter Smith boasts a wonderfully smooth and delicate voice. Despite making his name with a pair of dance-pop hits, Smith's own albums are melancholy affairs, characterized by mopey piano ballads outfitted lyrics that wallow in the downsides of romance and love. Still, it's difficult to not be captivated by the vocal gymnastics of this capable pop crooner.

I have been listening to Sam Smith for the last month or so ... and I'm blown away by the depth and breath of his voice. Why is it that the Brits keep producing such great voices and we have Britney? At least Bieber is Canadian.
