It's 2018. Time to make your dreams come true. After all, now that the American star of Suits is marrying Prince Harry, is it really so unlikely that a random DJ could land a gig at the royal wedding reception? Jevanni Letford doesn't think so. Letford, a DJ and music journalist, took advantage of the fact that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were visiting his radio station, Reprezent Radio, in the Brixton neighborhood of South London on Tuesday, and slipped the Prince his card. And just in case that wasn't enough to convince the couple of his credentials, this DJ is now sharing his royal wedding playlist.
According to a video Letford posted on Twitter, after passing his business card to Prince Harry, he then yelled, "DJ at the wedding!" to the confused and bemused royal, who slipped the card into his pocket for safekeeping. Points to the Prince for not immediately tossing it.
Letford also launched a social media campaign and online petition to get himself the gig (or at least a little notoriety). If you want him to have a 30-minute set at the reception, you can sign here. The petition states that this gig is Letford's dream, and understandably so. The guest list is going to be so A-list, it's not even on a list. That said, even if he gets the job, Letford might find himself limited to an approved list of censored songs. The literal Queen of England will be there, after all. But that's not stopping Letford from already submitting his first draft of the royal wedding playlist.
During an appearance on Good Morning Britain, Letford revealed his song selects for the big event that, keep in mind, he has yet to actually book. “I would definitely play Ed Sheeran, a bit of Stormzy as well because Prince Harry loves his grime and maybe even Wiley because he got an MBE,” Letford said, according to PEOPLE.
As for Meghan and Harry's first dance, the DJ is considering Beyoncé and Luther Vandross’ rendition of "The Closer I Get To You."
“It’s quite a romantic song," mused Letford. "It talks about two people coming together—obviously they are two people from different sides of the world so I think that would a good song to cement their union.”
Plus, Letford has a plan to get even the Queen herself out of her seat and onto the dance floor. "I’d probably do a remix of the National Anthem," he said. "Whoever sits down during the National Anthem?"
