American folk singer-songwriter Jaymay will join collaborators Josh Radnor and Jesse Hara for the Sept. 1 gala premiere at the Drexel of their Sundance award-winning film happythankyoumoreplease.

Radnor, best known as "Ted" in the CBS hit series "How I Met Your Mother," grew up with Hara in Bexley.

"Jaymay not only contributed nine original songs but also scored the film. She was such a special part of the movie for us because Josh and I had developed a relationship with her after hearing her song "Sea Green, See Blue" on a LA radio program" Hara said. "Many of Jaymay's songs are about New York and relationships and Josh essentially wrote a movie about New York and relationships and it just seemed such a perfect fit to use her music throughout the film and she kindly agreed."

"When Josh asked me to write some songs for his movie, I was thrilled. Not only was it a chance to work with him on a project I knew was close to his heart, but also an opportunity to write about the city I love." Jaymay said


The premiere will benefit Friends of the Drexel, Inc., the new independent nonprofit organization whose mission is to secure and sustain the future of the historic Drexel Theatre as a distinctive cultural asset to Bexley and the greater Columbus community.
