Kelly Clarkson breaks down in tears as global sensation Andy Grammer explains how his late mother requested a song from heaven featuring Ladysmith Black Mambazo.
The United States of America – Powerhouse singer Andy Grammer recently shared an amazing story of how he communicated with his late mother through a medium, and during the session, his mother was able to tell him how she wanted a song written about all the things she wished she could say to her granddaughter.
So, Andy teamed up with his mother’s favourite band, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, to write the song “She’d Say” to fulfil her request.
“I know I might lose some people with this story, but sometimes life is unexplainable. This song is by far the strangest most mystical artistic experience I have EVER had.
My wife got me a phone call with a medium as a gift. Quickly into the call he said, “your mother is coming through, and she wants you to write a song to your daughter, she wants it to be from her about everything she’d say but can’t be there to say.”
Honestly, whether I’m fully in on this or not that’s just a great idea. Also, my mom was a huge Paul Simon fan, especially the Graceland album he did with the South African male choir Ladysmith Black Mambazo. So when I heard they just happened to be performing in Los Angeles the week, I wrote the song it started to get downright eerie. I chased them down, blew up her photo, put it up in the studio, and tearfully explained myself to the choir.
They huddled together and just started singing “I miss my mom” in ZULU, it was otherworldly. For the rest of my daughter’s life, she will have this love letter from her grandma that she never got to meet. If my mom were here, this is definitely what She’d Say.”
