Thanks to all the fans who requested that I record this cover of 'Smile' as it was Michaelâs favourite song.â This was comes a few weeks after I released the cover of I'll Be There,' another Jackson 5 classic, sadly, just before Michael died.
I just finished voicing and producing the final mixes of Smile at Blu Pro Studios in London, UK working with Engineer, John Webber. The recording included the Souls of Prophecy Gospel Choir, and also an extra acoustic guitar mix from Stanley Andrews and a classical piano mix from Guy Barzily of the Souls of Prophecy Choir. Sam Gilly of the House of Riddim Studio in Austria produced the riddim track
The âLovers Rockâ style single with various mixes will be available in shops in November 2009 and on MP3 download from ITunes, Napster, CD Baby and Amazon. The tracks are released under my own label, Nurture Projects Music.

I am working hard on more promotion my new song Jackson 5 cover, I'll be There feat Adele Harley.
RIP Micheal Jackson, the greatest entertainer of all time. The song is dedicated to him.
Check out my new video release this summer of the song âItâs True which is a song on my âJourney to Foreignâ album featuring Hawaiian/Jamaican songstress, Irie Love. It was filmed in the UK on location outside our Studio in Leyton East London UK in July last year. We also filmed at South End Beach - it was so cold in the morning in May this year, thankfully the day brightened up and we finished the day in Jubilee Park, Edmonton London.
Thanks to Chris Cargill, Director, Editor Jesse Bamfro and Lee Tarrier of DOF Films for this production, as we met them last year as film students, after our first project 'Life in the Ghetto' music video, they are developing well. Thanks also to camera man Tony Redman who filmed some of the footage. And all the people in the video who managed to turn up on the day at short notice and of course Henry 'Buttons' Denyue, on the Trombone who travelled from the coast on the day. Special thanks to my manager, Juliet Edwards who pulled everything together despite suffering from a serious illness for 3 years, and holding down a day job, thank God sheâs well now. And to her Mom & Dad, who appear in the video, alongside, Julietâs brothers, Rob and Tony - Tech T more of her family, Nephews
Anthony Jacobs , R&B singer, Junior Swaby AKA Oaks, and

Clinark-The Reggae Torch releases cover of Jackson 5 classic
"I'll Be There" Clinark Feat. Adele Harley
Clinark delights fans with the release of this outstanding cover of the Jackson 5 hit single, I'll Be There,' featuring Adele Harley, He brings an outstanding rendition of this modern classic. He is still rising high with his current album âJourney to Foreignâ but says he was inspired to do this song. Clinark said ` The Jackson 5 were one of my favourite groups as a youth. I was just harping back to those days and sang a long a bit to the song and then my manager, Juliet Edwards
heard it and said I might as well record it for later. Well by the time I had the first demo vocal I was driven and by the time I had finished, Dillie and Mafia and Fluxy and Stanley Andrews had built this amazing track and to top it all Adele Harley came up with these amazing vocals.â
Sadly 4 days after announcing the pre-release of the song, the world heard that Michael Jackson had died. Clinark said âI am truly devastated to hear of Michael Jacksonâs passing, the world has certainly lost the most gifted entertainer of all time. I have dedicated the track in memory of him.â The single is available now on MP3 download from Clinark.com and from ITunes, Napster, and CD Baby, Amazon etc this month. The tracks are released under Clinarkâs own label, Nurture Projects Music. Look out for the accompanying music video, due out shortly.
