In 2015, Sam Smith has enough Grammys to melt down into a gilded throne, plus the distinction of recording the first James Bond theme to reach No. 1 in the United Kingdom. Still, it was only a short time ago that he was a kid with big dreams who cut class to see Lady Gaga in concert, and in a trailer for the upcoming Dreams Come True documentary above, you'll see his path from virtual obscurity to the face of contemporary soul pop.

In the clip, Smith, friends and an old teacher chime in on the artist's path to celebrity. There's also footage from concerts, red carpets and even an early recording session in which Smith sings about "the man above."

"The ups and downs are pretty intense," the "Writing's on the Wall" singer says toward the end of the segment. "But when they're good, I'm the happiest I've ever been."

And producer Alan Byron seems equally thrilled by the Dreams' finished product.

"A lot of care and attention went into getting the details right,” he said in a statement, according to Out. “We aim to please both existing fans and newbies, so we wanted to make sure that Sam Smith’s remarkable journey is portrayed in an accurate and entertaining fashion. By all accounts, we succeeded."

Dreams Come True will be available via digital release on October 13, and on DVD November 10. Check out the trailer, and tell us if you'll be interested to watch Smith's path to pop greatness.
