The Internet’s new favorite singer, Sam Smith, cancels a performance after losing his voice


It’s been said that there’s laughter — and then there’s Apollo laughter, a testament to the Harlem venue’s famously tough crowd. That sentiment doesn’t just apply to comedians, but to the vocalists who dare to take its stage as well; especially in its “Showtime” days, if  the Apollo crowd didn’t like you, it would boo, hiss and wave you off of the stage if the Sandman didn’t get you first.

It appears Sam Smith, music’s newest It Boy who’s been described as the “male Adele,” gave the Apollo crowd all he had when he performed there the night his debut album dropped last week. By Saturday, Smith was forced to cancel a performance at London’s Capital Summertime Ball because he’d lost his voice.
