An up-and-coming singer who grew up in a Crow country village has today (Friday) been named the BBC Sound of 2014.

Sam Smith, who grew up in Great Chishill, came top of the list compiled by 170 DJs, critics and bloggers, who were asked to name their three favourite new acts for the year ahead.

The 21-year-old provided the vocals for Naughty Boy’s number one single La La La in May and will be releasing his debut single Money On My Mind on February 16. His first album, In The Lonely Hour, is due to go on sale on May 26.
