He's already called her...
Page Six reports that David Bowie recently called Claudia Lennear, the star of the Oscar-winning documentary 20 Feet From Stardom (which is about backup singers of famous musicians) with an offer to work together. He called her before the movie won an award. Lennear has previously worked with Ike and Tina Turner, Joe Cocker and others. The film also stars Darlene Love and Lisa Fincher. It was bought by Harvey Weinstein's label RADiUS last year at the Sundance Film Festival.
She said: "I got a call from David Bowie out of the blue two days ago. He told me he wanted to write my next project. I couldn't believe it when I first heard his voice. We haven't seen each other in 20 years. This is bringing so many gifts back from my past. I am not sure what my next project will be . . . but I will definitely hold David to his promise."
