Just call them Siegfried & Roy — Two of the smoothest, most soulful voices have come together to make musical magic!
Sam Smith and John Legend teamed up a recorded Sam’s hit single “Lay Me Down” to support the charity Comic Relief, which works to change the lives of poor, vulnerable and disadvantaged people across the U.K. and Africa. The song has been designated as the official Red Nose Day single by Comic Relief.
Smith and Legend will perform the ballad together for the first and only time on Friday, March 13, on “Comic Relief – Face the Funny”, broadcast live from the Palladium in London on BBC One.
Recently Sam opened up about working with John on this duet. “‘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.”
John echoed those same sentiments. “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.”
According to a press release obtained by HipHollywood, “Universal will donate 100% of its profits from the sale of the single to Comic Relief. Sam Smith and John Legend will forgo any royalties due to them in connection with this charity single.”
Jennifer Hudson Is In Fear For Her Life, Gets Order Of Protection Against Ex-Fiancé David Otunga
Jennifer Hudson has been granted a protective order against her former fiancé, David Otunga.
Apparently, after 10 years together, Jennifer and David broke-up for several months ago. However, things turned extremely sour while the pair were trying to work out a custody situation for their 8-year-old son, David Jr. According to the protection order, Jennifer claims the former wrestler exhibited “aggressive, threatening and harassing behavior toward me.” She also says, “I am now living in fear of further action David might take.”
After receiving the order of protection on Thursday, cops showed up to Hudson’s home, that she shared with David, and escorted him out.
Otunga’s attorney vehemently denies any wrongdoing on David’s behalf and claims that Jennifer is using this protection order as a ploy to get the courts to give her primary physical custody of David Jr.
