WATCH: Kid from Philippines Catches Sam Smith's Attention

It was just a regular school day for Carlmalone Montecido from Bacolod City, Philippines (also goes by Steven Clarcson on Facebook). Doing what he loves to do, singing. Stopping by the mall, picking up one of the karaoke mics on display and belting out Too Good at Goodbyes by Sam Smith. With no clue his friend Trixie Madison was filming. That video now has close to 10 million views in a span of three days.

His voice is so amazing and did a fantastic rendition of the song, that it got Sam Smith himself to react and share his video. Posting this on his Twitter account.

Watch the video that"s getting Carlmalone so much praises. Get some tissue ready.

Here are a few more videos of him singing in the past years. This is Carlmalone joining a talent contest on a popular noon time show in the Philippines.

I am BLOWN AWAY! This kid has talent! You can find more of his videos on his YouTube channel
