"Smile" by James Numbere is an uplifting record that sees the London-based soul artist working hand in hand with the London Community Gospel Choir. Drawing inspiration from the work of the charity Operation Smile, Numbere pens a heartwarming piece that aims to raise the spirits of anyone who is down in the doldrums and give encouragement to never lose hope even during tough times. Backed by a lush reflective grand piano keys Numbere delivers a soul-gripping performance that truly uplifts the spirits which culminate in a resounding climax with the layered angelic vocals of the choir.
The visual (directed by Half Crescent) keeps the bright energy of the song with its playful aesthetic and captures the cheerful emotions of various individuals from different works of life. Like we all know that smiling can be contagious, the video will surely leave viewers with a beam on their faces at the end. "Smile" aims to raise funds and awareness about Operation Smile (a charity that performs life-changing surgeries on children in mostly third world countries with cleft lips and palates),.
