Musical performers continue to bless our ears with virtual performances in these times of social distance, and Sam Smith is the last to join the action. The singer, songwriter and angel on Earth has just crowned their own rendition of “What the World Needs Now Is Love”, a 1965 hit made popular by Jackie DeShannon. The song contains rather poignant and timely lyrics, including the opening line in particular: “What the world needs now is love, dear love. It is the only thing that is simply not enough.”
When Smith shared the heavenly cover on Instagram, they endorsed the video, “ I just woke up. Drinking a cup of coffee and feeling like singing … I haven’t felt like singing in a few weeks. Feels good. Have a nice day everyone. The sun is shining for you. “Consider our minds lifted. Hear the full cover of Smith in the video before us and kindly join to cross with your fingers that they will be performing a full live streaming concert soon.
