On Wednesday, November 24, one of America’s most talented emerging artists, Sahara Smith, will make her late night TV debut on The Late Show with David Letterman (11:35pm/10:35c). Smith, whose breakthrough debut album ‘Myth of the Heart’ was overseen by T Bone Burnett and producer Emile Kelman, will perform her sultry, smoky first single, “The Real Thing.”
