Gladys Knight says Sam Smith is the best candidate to sing the next theme song for the next Bond film
Gladys Knight - recipient of the international prize at the Silver Clef Awards - sang the theme to Licence to Kill and has been covering Sam Smith's Stay With Me on tour.
Now she says Smith would be her choice to record the next Bond theme.
James Bond and Sam Smith how about that? Sam has something in his voice - like it's more than just a song, it's a spirit, that you have when you deliver your music.
And to me Sam Smith has that spirit. The first time I heard him sing it was at an award show as loud as award shows usually are I couldn't hear anything else around me but his voice.
Now that's music. That's an artist. He'd be a good Bond theme.
Sam, if you're reading this, the perfect rhyme for SPECTRE is, of course, deck chair.
