Fans at the sold out Ryman Auditorium were on their feet this Saturday, August 24 2013 giving multiple standing ovations to the amazingly talented Sara Bareilles. With her quick wit and powerful vocals, attendees were delighted to hear the performer sing songs, both old and new.
After a heartfelt introduction by Sara Bareilles, the evening opened with special guest Harper Blynn who collaborated with Miss Bareilles on her new album, The Blessed Unrest. Harper Blynn is putting together an upcoming album and showcased their new single "Go".
Sara Bareilles released her new album, The Blessed Unrest, this July with Epic Records which hit number two on the Billboard charts. Her first single from the album, "Brave" has peaked at number 20 after only seven weeks of being on the charts. Sara shared her inspiration of writing the hit song which was for an adult friend still afraid of coming out to family. Sara hopes that the song can inspire people to be who they truly are. The video for the single has also inspired some pretty hilarious dancing as well.
The Blessed Unrest Tour, which opened in New York City will continue through the fall across the country. Sara Bareilles and Harper Blynn will join up with OneRepublic starting this next week at the Red Rocks Amphitheater on August 29th and tour together through September. Upcoming tour dates can be found here.
