He added: “When I got the call I was shocked. I thought, ‘Sure, why not?’ The whole thing was I had to think about what kind of arrangement you want to do and do you want a big choir, do you want urban, do you want this and that? So I just thought the best way for me would be to take my guitar and sing it the way I would have sung it as a kid.”
