Sam Smith thinks he has same attitude as Adele and Ed Sheeran
The singer has enjoyed worldwide fame this year and he is particularly known for his vocal talent.
Speaking to the Observer in an interview published on Sunday (August 31), the Brit said that he aligns himself with the likes of Ed Sheeran and Amy Winehouse when it comes to attitude.
Smith said: "With my record - and when you think about Adele, and Amy Winehouse and Ed Sheeran - we're not worried about the way we're looking, the way we're coming across in our music.
"We're just saying what's in our minds and in our hearts. Some people think when you are singing about heartbreak, or how lonely you are, or how sad, that you are admitting to weakness. But I don't see that as weakness. I see that as strength - to be able to face your issues and your sadness head-on. That's what I've tried to do in my music."
The singer meanwhile added that he often has fans telling him that his music has helped them to deal with personal troubles:
"They contact me on Twitter, Instagram, they write letters, they tell me their problems when they meet me. Recently I did a signing in New York and a girl came up to me. She was crying. She said I'd inspired her to come out to her family. Then, I started crying my eyes out too. Calling the album 'In The Lonely Hour' has definitely attracted other people who wear their hearts on their sleeves. It's nice. I don't feel so alone in my sadness anymore."
