Iconic Female Alternative Vocalists Team Up For "With A Smile" Cover
Separate but together in these trying times!
13 of the most notable female alternative vocalists made an impressively beautiful rendition of the Eraserheads hit "With A Smile! The powerhouse artist lineup includes Melody del Mundo Lucas of Sugar Hiccup. Cooky Chua of Color It Red, QT Paduano of Agaw Agimat, Lei Bautista of Prettier Than Pink, Kris Gorra-Dancel of Fatal Posporos and Cambio, Hannah Olives of Session Road, former Moonstar88 vocalist Acel Bisa-van Ommen, formerPut3ska vocalist Skarlet Brown, Aia de Leon, Kitchie Nadal, Barbie Almalbis, Bayang Barrios, and Cynthia Alexander. The artists united for this project because of a sole desire to uplift everyone's spirits amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The project was spearheaded by Melody who is currently based in Los Angeles. In a statement, she revealed "When I first thought of this, I was just really thinking of uniting us all to sing an inspiring song that would send warmth and love while everyone is in quarantine. This is something impossible to do physically but I know it can be done easily even with social distancing because of social media. I was really excited when I was running the names in my head and what an achievement it would be as this type of collaboration would be the first of its kind."
Apparently, she was granted permission by Ely Buendia to cover the popular Eheads song and post their version on YouTube.
The video includes a phone number that you can contact in case you want to give donations for the benefit of the healthcare workers and COVID-19 frontliners. Likewise, the talented female musicians are encouraging everyone to donate to KayaKap a fundraising campaign for working musicians who are primarily in their senior years, have disabilities, and in dire need of financial support.
Check out their version of "With A Smile" and we hope this brings you joy in spite of the ongoing crisis.
