Caillat: "Songbird was a great moment for me. As I recall, everybody had gone home or were leaving. Christine was noodling out in the studio and playing this song. I had the mikes up and listened. I didn't know what she was playing, but it was gorgeous. That song required the depth of a concert hall. I had recorded Joni Mitchell at Berkeley Community Theater. I remember that Berkeley Community Theater was the best live recording . . . . and so we called over to Berkeley Community and it was not available . . . they said, 'hey, there's Zellerbach Auditorium down the street.' So we set up the truck and made the plans. We ordered the orchestral shell. I talked to the prop guy and I said, 'give us three spots and focus them on the piano,' and we ordered a dozen roses and they were laying there for her. She came out and she just went, "Oh my God.'"
