Sam Smith made an appearance at The Virgin Holidays Attitude Awards, powered by Jaguar on Thursday night (October 12).
Speaking to the Press Association, Smith said: “This is my first Attitude Awards ever and I am so excited to just be around everyone and celebrate being gay with everyone.”
The ‘Too Good At Goodbyes’ singer added that he was feeling anxious about the release of his second album The Thrill Of It All.
“I feel really lucky – I was really scared before releasing my second album that people wouldn’t want to hear me sing again, I feel really welcomed the last few weeks.”
He continued: “I love singing, I’ve missed being out and singing live and meeting the fans. Being with fans just makes me happy, that’s the only way I can explain it.”
