At the 57th Annual Grammy Awards, Smith took home the coveted trophies for Best New Artist, Record of the Year and Song of the Year for his breakthrough single "Stay With Me," and Best Pop Vocal Album for his platinum-selling debut, "In The Lonely Hour." The 22-year-old British songwriter describes his album as his "way of defining 'what is love,' and how unrequited love is just as painful, just as powerful, as what we call 'normal' love." The star-studded cast of Broadway Loves Sam Smith will bring this emotional truth to the stage with the hit singles "Stay With Me," "Latch," "I'm Not The Only One," "Lay Me Down," and more fan favorites in an unforgettable evening of song.
The band featured Mairi Dorman-Phaneuf on the cello, Justin Goldner on the bass, David Cinquegrana on the guitar, Shannon Ford on the drums, and music director Benjamin Rauhala on the piano. The evening was produced and directed by Rauhala.
