The Drakensberg Boys’ Chamber Choir is once again bringing hope and joy to many forlorn South Africans during the Covid-19 pandemic with their moving rendition of Charlie Chaplin’s Smile.

The choir recently released a beautiful a cappella version of the classic, arranged by Ben Bram.

This is the musical group’s second song produced during lockdown, with the first being a version of Water Fountain by The Tune Yards.
