Before her concert with Jason Mraz in Hartford this weekend, Christina Perri performed an exclusive Acoustic Cafe for 96.5 TIC’s listeners. Christina performed three songs… and dropped some big hints about her future with the Twilight franchise!
Christina started off her acoustic set with a cover song, “Be My Baby” by The Ronettes, putting her distinct take on the classic song. Next up was her latest single “Distance,” but the singer hinted she wouldn’t be performing the song on stage tonight during her own set… she’s been playing it out as a duet with Jason Mraz! Christina described the new single, saying “It’s a song I wrote about not being able to tell someone how you feel about them.” The tune is certainly packed with all the emotion you’d expect from that description.
Perri ended her set with “A Thousand Years,” the hit song she wrote for Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part One. Before jumping into the music, she recalled her experience with the film series, and writing the single. “I’m not even gonna pretend I was cool about it… I cried the whole time,” she said. “I watched the movie and I went straight home and wrote this song.”
But what she said next was the most exciting news for Twi-Hards everywhere… “I might have seen the last film (Breaking Down Part Two) too, and it’s pretty amazing,” she teased, before adding. “I might be involved in that. I’m not really allowed to say though… just a hint.” And with the bomb dropped that Christina may be back for another round of Twilight music, she played her last song, joking “I’m sucking at secrets today!”
Christina Perri is currently continuing her tour with Jason Mraz all across the country. Breaking Dawn Part Two hits theaters November 16th, and it seems fans can look forward to a new Christina Perri song during the film!
