No two artists quite have the pipes and song-writing talents of John Legend and Sam Smith. And in support of the charity Comic Relief, the two combined talents for a brand new recording of Smith’s single ‘Lay Me Down’. Check out the charitable duet below and buy it now on iTunes. 100% of the profits go to Comic Relief, which aims to change the lives of the poor and vulnerable in the U.K. and Africa. Both Smith and Legend graciously opted-out of receiving any royalties from the proceeds on this one and you can also watch the two perform the track live (for the first and only time) on Friday, March 13 on Comic Relief – Face the Funny via BBC One.
“‘Lay Me Down’ holds a very special place in my heart. Not only did I perform it at the Brits, I’m now going to perform it live on the Red Nose Day show with the extremely talented John Legend, which is so exciting. I recently visited a Comic Relief funded project in my home town, which supports the young LGBT community in London. I’m extremely proud that my single will help raise money for projects like this and many others in the U.K. and across Africa.” – Sam Smith
“Sam is such a talented artist. We’ve been looking forward to working together for a while now. I’m so glad we could collaborate on such a great song and for such a great cause.” – John Legend
