Stunned by the crowd’s applause, Sam Smith burst into tears during his concert at the Bell Center on Saturday night.
While passing through the city as part of his “Gloria” tour, the British singer gave a full concert to the audience in attendance, starting with his greatest hits, including “Stay With Me,” “Like I Can,” or “Unholy.”
As he had just sung “Like I Can”, Sam Smith received a standing ovation from the audience.
“Oh my God! I really tried not to cry, Oh my God! Thank you so much, thank you so much, wow. You are amazing now! I have to tell you, I love you too!”
