International treasure Sam Smith had to pull out of the Capital Summertime Ball in London at the last minute because he lost his voice. The singer apologized in a Facebook post yesterday writing, "This is the first show I've ever had to cancel and I am praying that it is the last. I really have to avoid any long term damage to my voice." Get well soon, Sam! We need you to sing more Whitney Houston classics!
