Sara Bareilles in Nashville…rapping!

What’s the best way to ask a star on a date to the Prom?  With flowers of course, and a nice note.  These items were waiting for Sara Bareilles as she took the stage at the Curb Events Center on Sunday, April 15th.  Sara decided to have some fun with the note and broke into a rap, accompanied by her bandmates.  Watch the fun here:

Sara has been a Shure Artist for over 5 years now and she sounds amazing through her UR2/KSM9.  She opened the show with an a capella version of “Gravity” which filled up the hall.  The crowd was mesmerized.

This was a striped down show for Sara as she is about to go into writing mode for the next record.  I am going see how I can get the first copy!

(OK, back to reality. )

Sara, her band and crew are such wonderful people to meet up with.  The band is tight, they have fun on stage and it all seems very stress free.  FOH Engineer Trey Smith and MON Engineer Kevin Twist have been with her quite a while and both are Belmont University grads.  (Sara seems to be hiring a lot of people from there….)

Towards the end of the show, Sara’s performed her single “King of Anything” and got the to sing the opening melody line in a call and response fashion.  After the song finished, she and the band left the stage.  The crowd wanted more and were soon signing the call and response part to get her back out.  She said to the crowd ” You guys are so awesome! That’s never happened before.”

It will be a while before Sara does a full tour.  Until then, save up your spare change and when tickets go on sale, BUY SOME!  As long as she keeps coming to Nashville, you can bet I will be there, even if I have to buy tickets!
