Sam Smith Live in Manila


Last November 21, I was able to witness one of the greatest vocalists of this generation. If you are familiar with the 2015 Grammy Song of the Year “Stay With Me”, then I’m pretty sure you know who I’m talking about. He is no other than Sam Smith, who mesmerized the hearts of many Filipinos during his concert at the Mall of Asia Arena. Click here for more pictures.


Sam’s concert was originally scheduled in May, but due to the condition of his vocal cords, he had to reschedule. I was really disappointed with the change of the concert date, since I, together with my cousin, am already prepared for the show. However, I can proudly say that Sam’s concert was a blast and he sounded better than ever.

So let me restart #SamSmithMNL

My cousin and I arrived at the venue an hour before the show, so were able to buy snacks and check out the merchandise. Luckily, we were able to buy signed copies of Sam’s album, In the Lonely Hour (Drowning Shadows Edition). We were able to get the last two copies being sold so we were really fortunate.


At last, it was show time! Sam’s first notes really gave me the goosebumps brcause his voice was that good. He sounded like an angel in heaven with his compelling voice and I never had that feeling with any other artist I had seen live before. Also, the arrangement of his songs were really creative, and some were evem great to groove to!

Overall, I can truly say that Sam Smith’s show was amazing and I know I’m not the only one (pun intended) who enjoyed the show. I hope that Sam comes back really soon and that he will continue to make beautiful records. All the best for him xx
