Sampha Takes His ‘Piano’ To ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’


Sampha has a big year ahead, and he recently kicked it off with a performance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Sitting on the set with a beautiful orange-hued background, the London crooner performed his latest single "(No One Knows Me) Like the Piano." The moving track dedicated to his mother, who lost her battle with cancer in 2015, was already emotional to hear and now it's just as emotional to watch performed. Sampha's feelings poured out through his fingers to the keys. With pained facial expressions and a delicate presence, he beautifully sang, "No one knows me like the piano in my mother’s home," to The Tonight Show audience.

The last time we saw Sampha on the late-night scene was with Solange on Saturday Night Live back in November. Now that he's getting ready for his upcoming tour, which starts in February and ends in April, audiences from the U.S. to Europe to Australia will get to witness his unlimited talent. Sampha unveils his full-length debut, Process , on February 3rd before he hits the road. Check out his website for a full listing of tour dates and pre-order Process today, with instant downloads of "Timmy's Prayer," "Blood On Me" and "(No One Knows Me) Like the Piano." Watch Sampha perform his latest single on The Tonight Show and have a box of tissues handy before you press play.
