British singer Samuel Fredrick Smith was introduced to the world in October 2012 when he was featured on Disclosure's hit single "Latch." Since then, he has become one of the biggest music stars in the U.K. He lists vocal powerhouses Whitney Houston, Beyoncé and Mariah Carey as his music influences, citing late singer Amy Winehouse as his ultimate inspiration. Smith's April 2014-released single "Stay With Me" became a crossover hit, with hip hop/R&B singer Mary J. Blige appearing on the remix. (Photo: Frazer Harrison/Getty Images for Coachella)
