Over the past year, Sam Smith has burst onto the music scene with his powerful voice and his gospel-influenced pop hits. The young singer has gained a lot of attention through his collaboration with Disclosure and his hit song "Stay With Me." Recently, the pop singer stopped by BBC Radio 1 and performed a cover of Tracy Chapman's beautiful "Fast Car."
Smith puts his own spin on the folky tune by replacing Chapman's acoustic guitar with some jazzy keys and a grooving bassline. Despite the musical changes, Smith doesn't lose grasp of song's powerful impact and sings Chapman's narrative beautifully with his soulful voice.
