Sam Smith was raised in London. He is a former student and performer of the Youth Music Theatre UK, where Joanna Eden taught him to sing. Sam Smith appeared in the spotlight when the song “Latch” (2012) by Disclosure featuring Sam himself was released. The song was very successful and soon Smith signed a contract with the record label Capitol. Up to date, he has released only five singles, a studio album and EPs, but all the releases have been surprisingly successful. The singles “Lay Me Down” (2013), “Money on My Mind” (2014), “Stay with Me” (2014), “I’m Not the Only One” (2014) and “Like I Can” (2014) found their places in the music charts not only in UK and USA but also in Australia, New Zealand as well as many European countries. All the singles received certifications for sales in many of the above mentioned countries, which meant that the net worth of Sam Smith increased significantly, too. All the singles were included in the studio album “In the Lonely Hour” (2014), which topped the music charts in the UK, Australia, Ireland, New Zealand and Sweden, and achieved second in the USA, Denmark and Canada as well as third in Netherlands. Total sales were fantastic, selling more than 2.76 million copies in USA, 1.65 million in UK, 157,000 in Canada, and so five million copies worldwide.

As a featured artist Sam Smith has appeared in many successful songs, including “La La La” by Naughty Boy, “When It’s Alright” by Juun, “God Only Knows” by BBC Music and Friends, “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” by Band Aid 30, and others which have all added to Sam Smith’s net worth and fame. At the beginning of 2015, Sam began his first concert tour based on the songs of his studio album “In the Lonely Hour”, which is due to end in August 2015. One can assume that the tour will add considerably to Sam’s net worth.

Concerning awards, it is worth mentioning that Sam Smith earned two MOBO Awards in 2013, and in 2014 a BRIT Award, BBC Award, four MOBO Awards, a Q Award, Young Hollywood Award and American Music Award. These awards as well as nominations have had a positive impact on Sam Smith’s net worth, too. Smith says that he was influenced by such famous artists as Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, Beyonce, Christina Aguilera, Lady Gaga, Amy Winehouse and Adele.

In his personal life, Sam Smith admitted in public to being gay, and was in a relationship with model and actor Jonathan Zeizel. Smith also suffers from obsessive–compulsive disorder.
