Christina Perri Cracks Billboard’s Hot 100 With 1,000 years Part 2

According to Billboard:

 

Perri is back on the Hot 100 with “A Thousand Years, Pt. 2″ featuring Steve Kazee, the only track on “Twilight Saga — Breaking Dawn Pt. 2″ available for purchase a la carte. It debuted last week on Hot Digital Songs at No. 13 with 70,000 downloads sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Her original solo version, from the “Breaking Dawn: Part 1″ soundtrack, cracked the 2 million sold mark last week and is now at 2.1 million. It trails her biggest hit, “Jar of Hearts” from her debut album, “lovestrong.”; the single has sold 3.3 million copies.

“I always wanted it to be a duet,” she says, “because that’s the way I wrote it – part Edward and part for Bella.  I got to add a verse and then arrange it with a full orchestra with David Campbell. Being able to re-do it – I was incredibly blown away. When I went to the premiere, it felt more like everyone’s song – it’s for the whole franchise. I’m really honored.”

Christina Perri Hints She’ll Have Track on Breaking Dawn Part 2 Soundtrack

This weekend Christina Perri appeared at Hartford radio station 96.5’s Acoustic Cafe where she played a couple of sets…and let some interesting info drop about her and Breaking Dawn part 2.

“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!”

Hear it in Perri’s own words right here. Do you want her back on the Breaking Dawn Part 2 soundtrack.

Christina Perri Spills the Beans on an Artist and Actor Breaking Dawn Tour

According to The Hollywood Reporter (yet to be confirmed by Summit so realize these dates and locations may not be 100% solid):

Twilight is hitting the road for a unique run of promotional dates. From Nov. 7 through Nov. 11, one week before The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 opens nationally, select members of the movie’s cast along with musicians featured on the soundtrack will make appearances in five U.S. cities.

Exactly which Twilight characters will appear in the flesh has yet to be revealed, but the mini-tour kicks off in Atlanta and will travel to concert venues in Chicago, Dallas, San Francisco and Salt Lake City. Singer Christina Perri (slated to play three dates), Aqualung & Lucy Schwartz and Sleeping At Last (booked for other two dates) will each perform a brief set including the song they contributed to the movie’s soundtrack.

They quote Perri as saying:

The video for “A Thousand Years” will premiere on Nov. 17. In the meantime, Perri is looking forward to the great unknown. “They’re so secretive about everything,” she says of Summit Entertainment’s rollout plan for the tour. “But I hear there’s a private plane involved and I think it’s the Cullens that will be [on it] — the family, all the siblings and maybe some werewolves. But it doesn’t matter to me. I’d be stoked if it was an extra from the movies… If you would’ve told the Christina Perri of 2007 –who was waitressing all day and coming home every night to read one page of Twilight at a time, so it wouldn’t run out — that four years from now, she was going to be on a private plane with the cast, I think I would’ve passed out. It’s going to be a very surreal moment.”

Hopefully this will pan out. Having a music tour is a brilliant concept with these indie bands, too bad it hasn’t happened before! We’ve come a long way from those Hot Topic mall tours!
