Christmas is the time of year to celebrate and indulge in food, fun and a little bit of extra Christmas cheer. As this is Eikon’s first year we thought it only fair to follow traditions of Christmas’ past and give our readers some extra eye candy before the big day arrives.
Welcome to Eikon’s 12 Gays of Christmas.
Gay 2 – Sam Smith
Sam Smith is like the consummate Christmas professional, wherever there is a chance to sing a ballad or a carol he will be there. But he actually hates Christmas songs.
The four-time Grammy Award winner (all this year), said in 2014 interview, as he released a Christmas song, that he really didn’t like them much at all.
“I hate Christmas songs, it’s true,” Smith said.
“But [‘Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas’] is the only song I would ever attempt to sing, because of Judy Garland singing it, and Frank Sinatra singing it. To me, it sounds more like a classic jazz standard.”
See what you think of his rendition below, and Sam, have yourself a Merry Little Christmas.
