‘American Idol’ Alums Casey Abrams and Haley Reinhart: Behind the Scenes of Their ‘Hit the Road Jack’ Duet (EXCLUSIVE VIDEO)
Case in point: their sexy, hip-hop-inspired cover of Ray Charles’ ‘Hit the Road Jack,’ which is featured on Abrams’ just-released eponymous album debut.
As Abrams explained in Celebuzz’s exclusive behind-the-scenes video of the making of the song, it was his idea to bring Reinhart in to record the track.
“I literally dragged Haley Reinhart into the studio with me so we could sing that song together,” he said.
“Then we sang together and basically the whole track is just one take; it’s just me and her singing back and forth with each other,” he added.
