Blind schoolboy amazes shoppers by singing Sam Smith hit on store karaoke machine

A blind schoolboy amazed shoppers with his incredible voice when he started singing at a karaoke machine.

Carl Malone Montecido was accompanied by his classmate when he went and sang his version of Hollywood singer Sam Smith's "Too Good At Goodbyes" on February 5 at a mall in Bacolod City, the Philippines.

Video of the impromptu performance was posted online and even seen by Sam Smith himself - who wrote "Who is this kid!!!!!? You are out of this universe whoever you are."

Onlooker Trixie Madison said that everyone in the store who heard the teenager's voice was captivated by his flawless rendition of the hit.

She said: "We stopped and listened to him with the other people in the mall.

"The song was almost finished when I remembered to take a video."

Carl is one of Philippines' representatives in the World Championship of Performing Arts that is set to happen in California in July.
