The Overtones, a UK-based five-piece vocal harmony group, visited Rwanda on a recent medical mission with Operation Smile where they were part of a life-changing experience .
They played with children waiting for screenings, sang songs in groups and watched as Operation Smile medical volunteers changed smiles forever.
“To be a part of something like this in a country that is so beautiful with such a traumatic past is…it’s really important to us,” said Mike Crawshaw of The Overtones.
During their trip, the group decided to put their heads together to see what they could do to help Operation Smile.
The five decide to release their own version of the Nat King Cole classic “Smile” on iTunes available for £1.99 on December 16.
All proceeds from the single will go to benefit Operation Smile missions in Rwanda.
The purchase of “Smile” also includes two new bonus tracks for free.
