Michael Franti on Crystal Bowersox: “I’m Excited to Work With Her”
Michael Franti had a massive hit with “Say Hey (I Love You)” but he’s been on the fringes of the music business for years as an alternative/political artist. In most circumstances, it would be hard for him to imagine working with an artist from American Idol.
But when he got the call from Crystal Bowersox, he was eager to work with her.
“I’ve talked with Crystal on the phone a few times. She’s a really really talented artist, singer, songwriter. We’ve got the same hairstyle! She’s somebody who wants to make a difference in the world and that’s really unique for a young artist to say ‘not only do I want to make music that can sell and be on the radio, but that changes people’s moment and helps people get through difficult times.’ I’m excited to work with her.”
