Jack Garratt shares the letter he received from Barack Obama

Musician received a written response after he sent the President a copy of his album

Jack Garratt has shared a letter he received from Barack Obama.

In a series of tweets posted yesterday, the singer-songwriter explained that he sent the President a letter with a copy of his debut album ‘Phase’ earlier this year, and has now received a written reply from the statesman.

“A few months ago @POTUS was in London and I sent him a copy of Phase with a note that thanked him for bringing the world closer together,” Garratt wrote. “[I wrote] that I was proud to be part of a generation that saw first hand the efforts that went into trying to eradicate hate and promote equality.”

Garratt continued: I wanted to share my thanks and gratitude with @POTUS, a person who wanted to change the world with positivity. I received this today.”

Buckinghamshire-born Garratt is currently touring the US in support of ‘Phase’, which peaked at Number Three in the UK this year. During his set at Glastonbury in June he impressed with a mash-up of Craig David’s ‘Fill Me In’ and Justin Timberlake’s ‘Señorita’.

Meanwhile, Will Smith has recently revealed that he has spoken to Obama about playing him in a biopic. “We’ve talked about it a couple of times, and he said the one thing that’s for sure is I have the ears to play him,” Smith said.
