He truly has a timeless voice, and it's never been more true for Seal after he released a video of himself singing the Nat King Cole hit from 1954. 

With the caption "There’s a million reasons to smile", the Kiss From a Rose singer posted the video to Instagram to celebrate Mother's Day which is celebrated on March 14 in the UK. 

Seal famously recorded 'Smile' on his 2017 studio album Standard which featured covers of other popular musicians from that era, including Ella Fitsgerald and Frank Sinatra. 

"I feel that the songs from that era, they sing you. You've just got to trust them and trust the melody because the melodies are immaculate. They are sublime."

Watch the video above if you're in the mood for chills.
