Sam Smith and John Legend Record Duet Version of 'Lay Me Down' – See the Video!
All proceeds from the special duet version of Smith's single will go to the British poverty aid nonprofit Comic Relief
The British singer-songwriter, 22, and the “All of Me” crooner, 36, joined musical forces to rerecord Smith’s In the Lonely Hour single to serve as the official song for Red Nose Day 2015, a star-studded comedy event that raises money to help those affected by poverty across Africa and in the U.K., sponsored by the non-profit Comic Relief.
In the official video, which Smith posted to his YouTube channel Monday, shows the Grammy winners can be seen recording in the studio together, along with footage of the duo with young children in one of the African communities to which the Comic Relief organization provides aid.
The duo will perform the special version of the song together on Comic Relief – Face the Funny during the first live telecast of the event Friday on BBC 1.
