Grammy winner and international hitmaker Sam Smith reacted to a viral social media video showing a Filipino student belting out his hit song, "Too Good at Goodbyes." 

"Who is this kid?!" Smith posted in a tweet, referring to Carl Malone Montecido, the "Blind Balladeer" who joined ABS-CBN's Tawag ng Tanghalan in 2016. "You are out of this universe, whoever you are!" adds Smith. 

Montecido has a powerful and incredibly agile vocal cords that allow him to change notes quickly and fluidly as he belts. 

Prior to Smith's tweet, Montecido went viral in a Facebook video posted by Trixie Madison, who happened to be passing by when she saw Montecido singing karaoke at a mall. Watch the viral video below.
