Fabulous five-piece harmony group The Overtones have released a festive version of the 1954 Nat King Cole classic ‘Smile’, to celebrate the season of goodwill and help share a smile this Christmas.
With 100% of net profits from each single being donated to Operation Smile, the international charity dedicated to providing free cleft lip and cleft palate surgery in over 60 countries, please consider supporting them today.
Operation Smile has a network of more than 5,000 medical volunteers from over 80 countries and is dedicated to helping improve the health and lives of children.
Since its founding in 1982, Operation Smile has provided more than 3.5 million healthcare evaluations and conducted over 200,000 free surgeries for children and young adults born with cleft lips, cleft palates and other facial deformities, as well as patients suffering from burns.
To build long-term self-sufficiency in developing countries, Operation Smile trains doctors and local medical professionals in its partner countries so they are empowered to treat their own local communities, donates medical equipment and supplies, and provides year-round medical treatment through its worldwide Comprehensive Care Centres. Their impact has been vital to children everywhere.
Following a trip to Rwanda to volunteer at one of Operation Smile’s medical projects in September, The Overtones were so moved by what they saw they wanted to do more to help and recorded a heart-warming version of ‘Smile’ to help raise £56,000 to fund a return trip to Rwanda in April to help children still waiting for an operation.
