George Drexlerwho is in New York, where a concert tour in the United States begins this Tuesday, says that when they proposed to sing at the ceremony, they also asked him with whom he would like to share the stage and song.

“Can I aim high?” Drexler asked them, to which the organizers told him to try.

Jorge Drexler on singing with Elvis Costello: “I can’t believe it”

Jorge Drexler added that when the ‘This Year’s Model’ interpreter said yes, he couldn’t believe it.

“He told me with a lot of joy and a lot of willingness, and with a lot of desire to do things. The truth is that I can’t believe it. I’ve been rehearsing with him for a few days, here in New York, talking a lot with him on the phone, organizing it , making an adaptation of the song that we have to sing”, he adds, before warning that the song they will perform is “a surprise”.

For Drexler, Costello is “an absolutely delightful person, with a degree of humility that resets any perception one can have of a musical idol.”

He assures that “he acts with a naturalness that is totally disarming”, to the point, he says, that it seems that Costello is not aware of his own transcendence.

“She is a rare bird, she has a kind of wonderful blindness to her transcendence, it is as if she does not see her. It seems to me the most brilliant vital attitude in this work,” he points out, before insisting that these days of coexistence with Costello are being for him “a life lesson”.
