Sam Smith and John Legend have been working together recently, to re-record Sam’s song ‘Lay Me Down’ for Comic Relief.
Sam spoke out about the charity single collaboration saying: “‘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 hometown 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 UK and across Africa.”
John Legend also spoke about working with Sam Smith for Comic Relief adding: “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.”
The duo will perform the charity single live during the Comic Relief event at the London Palladium this Friday (15th March). Watch the fundraising event live on BBC One from 7pm!
