“WHO IS THIS KID?”
That’s precisely what renowned singer and songwriter Sam Smith had said after seeing the viral performance of Carl Malone Montecido’s cover of “Too Good At Goodbyes.” The song, originally written and popularized by Sam Smith, was covered by the young man inside a grocery store somewhere in Bacolod.
Smith, who eventually came upon the viral hit, had this to say:
WHO IS THIS KID!!!!!? YOU ARE OUT OF THIS UNIVERSE WHOEVER YOU ARE ❤️ pic.twitter.com/4zHfaXVSw0— Sam Smith (@samsmith) February 8, 2020
Carl Malone was in fact a performer during the first season of “Tawag Ng Tanghalan” back in 2016. He was referred as the “Blind Balladeer,” in reference to his condition. His condition never did slow him down, and his beautiful voice in the cover proves it.
